Hmmm let me get this strait. Hyundai wants us to pay $30K for that when we can get a base 370Z for $29,000 (0-60 4.7)? I'd take a fully loaded V6 camaro over the V6 Genisis coupe. 6.4 is disgraceful. I was expecting ~5.7

so wait a minute... the Genesis Coupe is $30k... a 1SS is about $31k... so for $1k more, you'd get a V8, ALOT faster track times and the warm fuzzy feeling of knowing you bought American

a well driven Camaro LT is going to smoke that little Genesis... they really should have found a way to stuff the V8 in there.

The Genesis coupe is loaded for $30K. You can load up a 2LT Camaro for 30K. They are perfectly comparable on price. The Genesis coupe starts around the same price as the Camaro and far less than a 370Z. You guys really need to stop taking any piece of information out of context just to dismiss a car for not being the Camaro.

Anyway, on to the review - flat torque curve = win, torque reduction on hard upshifts = fail.

Id buy a base 370z and have a faster, better handling, better looking, better built, and better driving car.





The End.

0-60 in 6.5 sec
1/4mi in 14.9@94.6mph with an as tested weight of 3990lbs (which means test gear and driver).

I highly doubt the Camaro will be whipping up on the Genesis. But at least it will be cheaper.

Now if only we could get the Camaro down to 3400 lbs like the Genesis, we'd be good to go.

idk, that is a pretty horrible 0-60

It sounds like a nice little car....it also sounds like it's going to get it's ass handed to it by the Camaro in a couple months. No fan-boying, here...those times aren't super-impressive for $30,000, AND -- that's the best it can do in terms of trim-levels...the V6 Camaro should be able to replicate all those numbers for less $$ (the CTS can't be used as a reliable comparison, too many differences).....as for the upper-level Camaro -- the SS will just annihilate it for a couple thousand more.

Still -- I think that's a nice little car. Almost like toned-down, 4-seat 370z.


If only it weren't ugly as sin.....

It's ugly.

It will get beat by a Camaro LS that costs thousands less.

It's really ugly.

The Camaro SS will sink its battleship.

Did I mention how ugly it is? It's pretty incredibly ugly.

Edmunds 0-60 time seems to be an anomaly. Most others I've seen are deep into the 5 second range. And FOR THE LOVE OF GOD CAN WE STOP ASSUMING $30K IS THE BASE PRICE? That's a V6 with a leather interior and all the boxes checked. Take a 2LT Camaro, check all the option boxes, including the sport suspension and brembo brakes...oh wait, you can't get those things on the V6 Camaro. You can get a V6 Genesis Coupe for the low $20Ks, and you can get a V6 Camaro for the low $20Ks. Deal with it. Admit it. It reduces torque on hard upshifts to protect the drivetrain. The Camaro skips 2nd and 3rd gears to get "extra" fuel economy. I too think the Genesis coupe is pretty ugly, but I know just as many people who think the Camaro is ugly. I guess styling is one of those subjective things...

Also, I'd like to point out that this photo illustrates that the seats will actually hold you in place in turns:

http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do.../photoId=76472

Also note the Genesis coupe has a curb weight closer to what a performance car should actually weigh.

I don't love it, but I sure do respect it.

the base price for the V6 is around 25k, and 30k is to get the track option where you get the brembos and suspension and tires. without that track package the numbers would be even worse

Edmunds botched their numbers. Everyone else has gotten better, and I know this really doesn't mean much but if you bench race the stats you have to figure the real numbers have to be much better. You can't get a track package on the Camaro V6 at any price, and I imagine the more reasonable weight pays big dividends in the actual driving experience as well.

I say this with as much respect as i can muster, but you are so wrong here.



Yes the V6 Genesis coupe with the track package and brembos and shiny plastic everywhere will keep up with a base level Camaro, maybe even beat it around a track. The weight advantage helps with this. However... By the time you GET that car into the leather, brembo, ''sport suspension'' area, you've already spent as much as if you were to get a base 370z or close to an SS. You can argue all day long that the car 'starts' down low like the base Camaro, but it comes with a sonata engine and a crappy suspension. base for base, the Camaro wins. Track package vs. SS the Camaro wins.



You'd have to be STUPID to take a tricked out 30k+ Genesis coupe over ANY 370z or ANY SS which is exactly what you'd be doing if you bought one of these.

It depends if you want leather or not. If you do, then your Camaro SS will run you about $35K, same for the 370Z. If you don't want leather, then the SS is down to $30K and the genesis is cheaper. Also, with less weight having less power isn't as much as a liability as it is made out to be, especially when your thinking isn't limited to straight 1/4 miles.
