Edmunds: Camaro V6 vs Genesis Coupe

http://blogs.edmunds.com/straightlin...-coupe-38.html


Have a look at a few things below:


- Despite smaller rotors with single-piston calipers and a heftier curb weight, the Camaro turns in the better braking performance. Although both are quite good.

- At the quarter-mile, only a 1/10th of a second separates the two. With a one-foot roll-out, they post identical 0-60 mph sprints.

- One of them is $3,530 cheaper than the other. But which?

Wow like drivingincamaro said I was half expecting to see the Genesis Coupe slightly but decidedly beat the V6 Camaro in the performance bracket. Great to see they are very close! And the best thing is the price difference!

Great Comparo,

I love the Genesis Coupe... its great that the greatest coupes out right now are 1: comming from an American manufacturer and 2: commin from a company that has had the WORST public image...

The Genesis Coupe is a GREAT car... but the Camaro is better

First of all the Genesis is not "comming" It's COMING. Secondly, last time I checked, Hyundai is NOT an American manufacturer. Hyundai is KOREAN. They might build their tin can here in the good ol USA, but Hyundai IS NOT AMERICAN for God's sake! What the heck is wrong with people?:upset:

I thought he meant one of them coming from an american company, aka the camaro. The second coming from a company with a bad public image aka the Hyundai Genesis, however I would disagree with it being the second best coupe coming out right now. I would much rather take the 370z or g37 over the Genesis

If you're going to correct misspellings all the time internet forums are not your friend ; )

and he was talking about the Camaro and the Gen. Coupe I think.
Everybody knows Hyundai is Korean.

Hyundai's reputation is rapidly changing with the latest reliability reports and the good reception for the Genesis sedan. It aint American and it aint a Camaro, but that Genesis Coupe is sweet.

Hyundai seems to be the car company darling of the press at the moment. It's obvious their quality has improved, but the Gen coupe does not do it for me at all. I personally don't like any of the Japanese or Korean newer "sports" coupes. I dunno, but I wonder if guys who grew up loving American muscle or sports cars are going to cross shop the Gen or the 370 z. They are just the antithesis of what I like in cars. I just would never want to own a Hyundai, could be Rolls Royce quality, still wouldn't buy one. I'm a proud drinker of the kool aid.

The new genesis coupe looks a lot like the old crappy tiburon (before the redesign) if you ask me.

I'll say again, the 2010 Camaro LS/LT is the best bang-for-your-buck car I've ever seen in my lifetime. I can't believe GM pulled this off!

I saw a Genisis Coupe at the Dallas Auto Show and loved it till I tried to sit in it! It is just another import car for midgets. Wake up the auto industry.....there are tall people here in the States!! I am hoping my Camaro is just the right size!!

I drove the genisis sedan and the car was great and i really enjoyed it. Then i looked at the coupe a few months later and not so much. Its just not that nice. I def like the G37 more then this car. The genisi coupe is nice but not great..

The V6 Camaro just about matches the Hyundai in performance while weighing hundreds more and getting equal/better mileage. Of course the Camaro win in the looks department.

Be thankful there is competition, otherwise who knows what kind of Camaro we would have gotten.

I think it almost looks exactly like it. Your last point I HOPE we all HOPE that is going to change.

HAHA lets see. lets find out what looks almost exactly like it.

hmmm....
it's not the glass
it's not the body lines
it's not the headlights
it's not the fog lights
it's not the grill
it's not the wheel well lines
it's not the wheels
it's not the hood
it's not the gfx
it's not even the mirrors

what exactly are you looking at?? the emblem?

it's like saying the camaro's "hips" look "almost exactly" like the new eclipse
