Camaro v6 vs Hyundai Genesis Coupe V6

FIRST PLACE: Hyundai Genesis Coupe
Best viewed from behind the wheel, where it handles entertaining roads more like a sports car than a pony- or musclecar.

SECOND PLACE:
Chevrolet Camaro
Powerful, refined V-6 and enough style to lend some to Hyundai, its weight and size make it less entertaining on second- and third-gear roads.

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...ack/specs.html


















This is going to be a healthy competition...

not to mention now that Hyundai is Global auto manufacture #4, surpassing Ford...

It seems like Hyundai has passed domestic car companies. They are clearly going for Japanese cars now. Yes, this is the reality.

It was really pointless posting this man. About 98% of the people here will hate on anything that does not read CAMARO. Maybe they are in denial that a Hyundai is handing a camaro its ass. Nice pictures of the genesis coupe though.

True.

I like the Red Genesis Coupe. Very clean looking.

Have you seen this? Very cool.

Yeah, I have seen that. It's pretty cool. I am not a fan of the red. I like the black version they have out, or I like the matte black version in the pics. I have recently been up and down between what do I want? Do I want a 350-400hp genesis coupe? or a 450-550hp evo x ? So props to you with the evo, they are truly sick cars if done right. Not to hi jack the thread, but if I were to do a evo, the link is almost what I would have it like, except more power, and in black without the mitsu grille piece, with the silver rims in the lower pics... http://forums.evolutionm.net/evo-x-s...x-project.html

I think I need to put you in line in regards to a few things. I like the camaro, but don't like most of the owners. Most of the owners feel like they own the best car ever, and its far from the truth, I know I dont own the best car. I am not cocky, I just state the facts, and personal opinions from time to time. I also don't troll, thanks.

If I were to go for the EVO thousands upon thousands would probably be dumped into it. Just to make it a even better car, and street car. Id do suspension upgrades, better tires, rims, a wing ( not a ricer wing ), all of the basic bolt ons, and either a single turbo set up, or a twin turbo set up with a built engine.

I wouldn't call it 'handing a Camaro its ass' It keeps up no doubt, and if the Genesis driver is better it'll definitely win. But thats goin a lil far. I know my Camaro isn't going to beat everything, I know there are always faster, better handling cars. But I still love my Camaro the most

-edit- and seeing as how your Genesis is SC'd, I doubt I'd keep up

Just to put it into perspective, it's
14.4 sec @ 98.3 mph vs 14.2 sec @ 99.8 mph

As per the article above.... That's not exactly leaving the camaro for dead.

I believe strongly these two cars are very closely matched. .2 seconds and 1.5 mph in the quarter stock for stock is pretty much a drivers race with a slight advantage going to the Genesis.

ZZZZZzzzzzzZZZZZzzzzzzzzz, Snore. Nice looking vehicle but it's just not a Camaro.
I would suggest taking your facts and mag article over to the import boards, plenty of lemmings there.

Actually I have seen a time slip of a genesis coupe in the 13's. Will try and find it.

That's completely possible. It's hard to know however how it relates since I could go hunting for the fastest V6 Camaro time too and that would not be at least in my opinion a true comparison of acceleration. You need to have the same driver, same conditions for both cars.

The suck part is, I'd like to know the 60" time as well to see if there is some difference in the reaction but magazines sometimes don't show us that

... However... If you find it post it so we can see a nice time, I am all about that hehe..

The Genesis is totally capable of handing the v6 camaro its ass, they have about the same hp (The gen has something insignificant like...2 more), but the genesis is a few hundred pounds less.

I'm perfectly aware the 2010 Camaro isn't gonna be a new ZR1. You're really close to a 1SS in pricing when you get the brembo package, about 1.5k more i think. 25000 starting to get the base V6 Genesis coupe.

To the milk mod dude... I am not out to bash camaro owners. I am stating facts from what I see. I am standing up for a car I like, and then you get people that go off the wall talking shit about the car just because it is an import. It's a totally different story if they were bashing me, but thats because its a import. Don't get me wrong, I love the camaro, and I have respect for some of the people here. IRPQ is a example, cool guy, Indpwr is another example, 1320 junkie is another, and there are quite a few others that I respect here. They seem to have a open mind when it comes to cars. I have noticed however that about 98-99% of the others that I have talked to, don't. I am aware this is a camaro forum, but people really need to get over themselves and understand that the camaro, believe it or not, it is not the best thing since sliced bread. Believe it or not, others do visit this forum, and they may not own a camaro, but admire the camaro, but when they see the constant bashing of imports it will give the forum a bad rep, as well as the camaro owners, because some people do have a open mind when it comes to cars. Thats how generalizations come about. It is also true I don't take crap, I won't back down, thats just my attitude about life, maybe I need to be put in place by a mod every once in a while and tell me to cool it, being straight forward with everyone.

3.8 track v6 genesis coupe for around 26.5k at my local dealer. It was a online quote. I wish they wouldn't of did the old style interior, imo it kinda killed it for me, besides that its a cool car.
