Uhhhhh, it won last year. (Genesis)
The year before was the Malibu.
I think the Camaro has a great shot & I hope wins!

The Camaro has a chance due to popularity and sales, however if it becomes a political decision, then the Prius will win..

I would love to see the Camaro win and I think it deserves it as much as any other car on that list, but I have a feeling the Prius will be given the award. The Fusion hybrid or the Taurus may have a chance also.

Even if I wasn't buying a Camaro, I would have voted for the 2010 Camaro.
Clear out winner all around.

As much as I hate to say it, I think the 370z should be a close contender as well. Though, I have my doubts that it will be able to pull it off.

Thats quite a mix. Depends what the criteria is I guess.
Of course the best mix of everything is the Camaro.

No bias of course

Hyudnai GENESIS? You're fired.
Good for Hyundai, I'm glad they were finally able to pull together a decent car, but up against the RETURN OF A LEGACY??? And an innovative comeback at that. It's Camaro hands down. Where's the Genesis5 forum at? I just don't know...

PS: You realize you're the first post right? Besides, getting in and out of a "Genesis" every day, I'd never be able to clear my head of "In the air tonight"... I can hear it callin. for all my life... o lord... DAMN!!!

i'd say either the camaro, the new fusion hybrid, or the genesis.

apparently the fusion hybrid is pretty darn good, and the genesis is a heck of a car for a hyundai.
but of course i'm going to proclaim that the camaro deserves to win. 300hp V6 with 29mpg? that's car of the year quality right there.

on a side note, i hate the new speed3's. it looks like mazda was sleeping around and got pregnant with subaru. the ginormous intake ruins it for me, and the general styling.

They definately screwed up that Mazda. I don't even care for Mazdas, but even I'll say that poor speed3 doesn't deserve to be that ugly.

While I am just very happy the Camaro got nominated, I would love to see it win. However a win for any GM car would be great too.

I'll agree with the rest of you that the Camaro is a better car than the Hyundai, but the Genesis coupe is more significant, and that is the point of this award. GM building a competent, good looking performance car is nothing new. Except for 2002-2008, they had in fact two competent, good looking performance cars in Chevrolet alone. The Camaro is good but lets be honest, it doesn't really change anything. It simply continues the quality improvements that made waves in the past few years, the engines and platform have been seen and praised before. Hyundai won last year with the Genesis sedan because it was their first shot at a luxury sedan and they did a very good job at it. The Genesis coupe is their first performance car and they also did a very good job at it. So why shouldn't that be just as a significant accomplishment?

You know, I got flack here for saying the Hyundai should win this award because you don't post that on a Camaro forum. Well, take a look at the section of this thread where about 5 people in a row simply say "Camaro should win". Now imagine the whole thread being everyone simply agreeing with that statement while bringing nothing new to the table. How sinfully dull would that be!? This should be a discussion. Tell my why the Hyundai is not significant. Don't just say Camaro simply because this is a Camaro site. Yes obviously we're all Camaro fans here, but lets hear some good reasons. Return of a legend is certainly a good one that I saw. What else?

And finally, yes, it is such a shame was Mazda did with the new 3. The interior is very much improved, but that hideous exterior (aerodynamic though it may be) and carryover mechanicals for the Mazdaspeed3 put it at the bottom of this list for me, and I love Mazda.

You'll hear no arguement from me. The Genesis Coup probably deserves to be up there just as much as the Camaro. It's a real accomplishment from Hyundai. Pictures don't do the Genesis Coup justice. I saw one at an Auto Show in April (a yellow one), and I must say, I nearly got ran out of the place for forming a pool of drool on it's hood. I think the front of this car in person is gorgeous. My only complaint about the car is the interior room. It's a small car and as such has a small interior. It's nothing I couldn't get used to, but honestly, if I wasn't buying the Camaro I'd go for the 370z or a nice used 'vette. The Genesis Coup would be a close fourth though.
