My brother has the 2010 Gen Coupe Trac and it rides terrible!!! I know it is the trac edition but come on!!!! Very Bad Ride. On the other hand one of the things I noticed first when I picked up my 2SS was how good the ride was. Just saying!!!

The ride of the camaro either in V6 or V8 form is great. It is one of the camaro's best features, especially given that it is a sports coupe. I found the ride in the V6 slightly more plush than the SS. I could use either car as a daily driver.

Here's a review of the two cars by Car and Driver. At about the 2 minute mark they talk about how rough the ride is on the Genesis.

I can't speak for the Genesis, I've never driven one, but the V6 Camaro is very comfortable and a great daily driver. If you want to drive it harder, you can turn the traction control off, and it makes the car feel a bit more confident and less numb without sacrificing ride quality too much.

It's really up to your own preference, The Camaro is comfy! But I don't always care for that comfy feeling, sometimes I want a rough confident sports car, and I don't think the Camaro will fully satisfy that part of me without an upgraded suspension.

From my own experience with import sports cars, and what I hear about the Genesis, you're probably never going to get that comfortable ride.

yeah...for C & D to pick an American car over any imported car...you know the Genesis must not be that great.
