NO matter if Genesis beats Camaro or not, Genesis can NEVER EVER be qualified as a muscle car. That's like comparing some Nissan GTR to the camaro. Camaro will always be Mustang and Challenger... these three are like bros... who want to kill each other.

Just the idea that they would compare the two is a joke IMHO....

exactly... but apparently... Hyundai wants to compete with the camaro... for more power, and lower price. But seriously? Look at the Genesis... when i see that on the road, i think it's just another rice car. (No offense to people who drive Genesis) But seriously... They are comparing apples and oranges, and I don't like using Cliches =(

So the Genesis performed better in every performance test and the Camaro won.

Where have I seen that before?

The Genesis rides like a ROCK and jumps on corners with bumps, the Camaro soaks them up like a dry sponge

They did have the RS package on the LT. Notice the 4pod gauges. The Genesis is also 400lb lighter. That makes a HUGE difference in all the areas tested.

Cluster gauges are a 2LT option, not an RS option.
RS package includes 20" wheels, HID's, darker tail lamps, body-colored weather strips, and a spoiler on the LT.

What strikes me as weird is the 2LT interior with the 1LT wheels... The 19" on the 2LT could have been better than the 1LT's 18"

I suggest the two get driven back to back by regular people...and not journalists.
It's a night-and-day difference....well, maybe not THAT much...but I much prefer the Camaro.

Define what "muscle" and "rice" is.

If I am right, your definition of "muscle" car is any sports car from a US carmaker.

Your definition of a "ricer" car is any sports car from an Asian car maker, no?

Besides the origins of these respective cars, what are the MAJOR differences that makes one apple and the other an orange?

Spec wise, these two car are similar (okay one weight a bit less than the other), but mostly same configuration and similar power.

Motor Trend put these cars ( and others ) to the test:

fully indendant suspension on both
similar pricing on both


Really, the only big differences are weight and the styling directions. These cars couldn't get much more similar.

i have to disagree with this statment
i've had a hyundai xg350 and it was a great car
100.000 miles/10year warnenty
i only had it in the shop once for major repair
about six months into owning the car the air conditioner quit
took it to hyundai, they gave me a loner (tiberion) till they could fix mine
i returned to pick up th car they had the intire ac system out of the car and sitting on the shop floor, i asked what the, they informed me they were boxing up the hold system to send back to the main company. they wanted to find out what caused the system to malfuction. after that we had the car for five years with no problems, the new camaro came out and even though we did not want to sell the hyundia, the sales guy gave us such a great deal we jumped at the camaro.

i driven the genenis and the coupe both are great cars not as fun as the camaro but oh my god they are so sweet. and still you get the best that hyundia has to offer which is still more then chevy or ford has got

i also had a 2001 chevy impala 3.8l that just stayed in the shop first the abs went out and they fixed it
then the ac quit they said i messed with it i told them hell no i haven't done anything to it, they still fixed it
then the bom quit, now that was a weard experance
after a month of telling them i was having problems with the dash just going off while driving down the road, and then i had to prove that they fixed it
then to top if off at about 80000miles the intake (made of plastic) started to suck water into the #1 cylinder, this was a known problem for these engines they told me car was out of warnenty and that i would be charged to fix it

unload piece of junk chevy bought the hyundai
no problems after the ac on the hyundai

now we do regret not keeping the hyundai but like i said the dealer gave us such a great deal we jumped at it
so the only reason we got the camaro was the fact it was sweet car
got loads of power and 100000 mile warenty

very right about this drove both the coupe and genenis cars very good driving cars
more in touch with the road and what consuners are wanting in a car
the genenis has a very good ride a v8 is offered and it is quick
the coupe it will fly, it is very firm great seats and the standard is to sweet

I'm tired of the titles cars are given based on unimportant measures, like origin. If two cars compete in the same category, then we should call them the same thing. They have similar power, similar sizes, and similar prices. These are both pony cars. There is no good reason that a new product from a new point of origin cannot belong in a traditionally domestic category. It might not have that classic look, but the Genesis also isn't a classic car. It has to build its reputation. In the meantime, we should be consistent.

Moreover, focusing on a car's origin is borderline discriminatory. By calling a domestic vehicle "muscle" and an import "rice," we create a discriminatory environment in how we evaluate the manufacturers and drivers of these vehicles.

Before I continue, I should point out that we should discriminate based on quality and performance when purchasing a vehicle. I would even argue that place of origin is very important in making a buying decision. After all, we should first prioritize domestics simply because those companies give the most back to our community and economy.

This, however, does not mean that we should call all Asian cars "rice" simply because they are Asian. If a car is "riced out," I think we can mostly agree on a definition: a vehicle, usually in a compact car segment, featuring cosmetic, functionless components that generally hinder rather than help the appearance of the vehicle. In this proposed definition, I have identified that the car is usually but not always small, like a Civic, and features cosmetic enhancements that serve no purpose, like large spoilers on FWD platforms, and further that the vehicle's cosmetic changes may hinder its appearance, like strange body kits.

In conclusion, we don't have to like the Genesis. Personally, I respect Hyundai's effort in making a performance vehicle, but I don't like it. It's just ugly. In fact, it's designers should find another profession. The performance is respectable, and as such we should respect the fact that we have another competitor in our midst. If it competes with a Camaro, Challenger, and Mustang, then it must be in the same class as these vehicles. We call that class the pony cars.
