Hyundai Genesis coupe 3.8 WOW!

I sat in a Hyundai Genesis coupe 3.8 yesterday just for kicks. The interior was WOW, it was great. I couldn't believe I was sitting in a Hyundai. Even the rotors were huge and the brembos were tremendous. Too bad it looks like a hyundai on the outside, LOL

It seems to be a step up from what hyundai is used to.



So that puts them at ground level.

*snrk* So true. Pity, they're no older than Kia in the US and IMO Kia is doing much better.

Saw one driving down the road the other day. Looks better in person and in motion than it does in pictures or just sitting still. Still not great looking, but better.

hard to describe their styling cues, but there is a fair bit of 'family resemblance"

In case you don't know what the genesis coupe looks like:

IMO that car is beautiful from the side mirrors on back...but the front end it horrible. Looks like a scrunched up Sonata. They should have ditched the center grille entirely and went with a less dramatic headlight. A large "mouth" type grille like on a Jaguar E type or Aston Martin would have made this thing irresistable.

aren't they usually pretty tough on cars?

BMW’s M3—yes, that one—should take lessons from the Genesis Coupe’s steering rack. It serves-up Porsche-level feel, with just a tad less precision.

Sweet car. Just like a G37, but saves you 6k or so. GM should take some notes from Hyundai for sure.

Hmf...I think it should be the other way around! Hyundai early on said they were going to market this car as the cheapest car with 300hp on the planet....well, Camaro undercut that by quite a bit now didn't it.

Plus...preliminary reviews have the V6 Camaro slated as "the American G37"...so I think everything's shaping up quite well.

I hate the star system. It should be out of at least 100 points. The difference between a 5 star rated car and a 4 star rated car can be huge and it can be small. And don't even get me started with half stars

Ok but...when you drive down the street what do you think people are going to notice - a new Hyundai or the new Camaro.
And when you tell people you bought the new Hyundai or the new Camaro, what do you think they are thinking when they hear Hyundai? Yes they've improved dramatically, but a Hyundai sports car?
Maybe in 10 years, but I want American muscle!
I think my Dad is looking at the Hyundai - enough said?

i saw this car at the chi auto show......


This car Is ummm okay i guess, to me it looked like a better looking tiburon

It does not look good in any bright or flashy colors. I say that because the black genesis looked 10x better than the yellow one

Wow, I was thinking it was some hot british car!"

I saw and sat in a couple of these at the Fort Lauderdale Auto Show today. I must say, I am really impressed. They copied the old G35 coupe heavily, at least in the interior (dare I say, it looks even better than mine did inside). I think it looks great all-around (better in person than in pics), esp. the wheels and brembos. If it didn't have a Hyundai badges everywhere, I would not know they made it.
