Hyundai Genesis Coupe V6 got 5.7 sec!!!

" Is there a segment of the market that Hyundai isn't targeting? Whether through its namesake brand or via its subsidiary
The new Genesis Coupe is an even greater engineering feat than it is a design coup... and it looks fabulous. (Photo: Hyundai)
Kia, every category from subcompact hatchbacks to V8-powered luxury sedans and full-size 4x4-capable SUVs has a competitive model vying for its piece of the action.

The first vehicle to truly stun auto industry pundits was the full-size Veracruz crossover, and that only came after a Santa Fe that did its fair share of jaw dropping. Comments such as Lexus-like appointments were followed up with BMW-like handling and breathtaking acceleration when the Genesis sedan arrived, overshadowing its own full-size front-drive Azera and near best-in-class Sonata. Now the Korean segment shaker is taking on BMW's sacrosanct 3-Series Coupe with its new Genesis Coupe, making some pretty bold claims that it will have to live up to as soon as the first test drives take place.

By targeting BMW's 3, Hyundai knows that all other comers will be pushed to the side, the German car revered above all direct competitors, other than possibly the Infiniti G37 Coupe for handling prowess. Therefore other rear-drive sport coupes like Ford's Mustang, Dodge's new Challenger and Chevy's
The Genesis Coupe's power to weight ratio bests most of its competition. (Photo: Hyundai)
upcoming Camaro, at least in V6 trim, will be automatically disqualified. Right off the mark its 310-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 and 3,402 pound curb weight give it a better power to weight ratio than the top-line 335i, Infiniti's G37, the Camaro LS and the Challenger.

The numbers speak for themselves, with a 0 to 60 mph time of just 5.7 seconds and EPA highway fuel consumption in the 25 mpg range."

Here is a cool video of GenCoupe...


This is making my decision harder between Camaro V6 and GenCoupe..lol

Well, it's lighter, has a bigger engine with more horsepower, and will cost more.
I would hope it was faster to give people SOME reason to buy it over a Camaro : )

first.


If i was infiniti, id sue the shit out of them for building a car earily similar to the G37


second...

im not impressed by this.... 5.7 is slow for a car which is supposed to be competative with the mustang/G37/3-series.

and to be honest. i dont think its faster than the V6 maro. I think once the real world cars come out people will see a 5.7 from their cars.

those 2 pics just show the genesis good angles if you look at it from any other angle its as ugly as a cow IMO

as for the average consumer they do not want the fastest car or the car that can handle like a Ferrari, i

my first priorities for buying a car are

1. Looks,

2. fuel efficient(if a car has bad fuel efficiancy its a huge turn off for me)

3.price 22k for v6 camaro

4.HP

the genesis is a good car dont get me wrong but I will always buy American :flag2:

Really? 5.7 seconds is only 0.3 seconds slower than a G37, and depending on which magazine you go by, it's only about 0.3-0.5 seconds slower than a Mustang GT (though with the torque the V8 puts out compared to the Hyundai V6, I'd expect the Mustang to have an acceleration edge). So it's still comparable to those vehicles.

its .3 and .7 slower than the OLD Mustang and G37, not the new models.

so it does 0-60 in 5.7 eh? Not bad, not bad at all. Too bad the Genesis Coupe V6 is going to probably end up costing the same as a Camaro SS, although it'll compete surely against a loaded V6 Camaro.

the current gen Mustang GT (05-09) does 0-60 in 5.0-5.3 seconds. I think it actually has a mfr rating of 5.1 or 5.3 seconds, but don't quote me. Car is also capable of doing the 1/4 in 13.6-14.0 seconds stock.

The G37 does 0-60 in around 5.2-5.3 seconds.

Both the G37 and Mustang GT are going to be noticeably quicker than the Genesis Coupe V6

And just to throw it out there the 07-08 Nissan 350Z's do 0-60 in around 5.1-5.4 seconds...

Worse will be if if people buy this over the V6 Camaro, believing it to be a higher quality product.

Hyundai build a good fake Lexus with the Genesis sedan, I've driven one, but unless they've really done their homework with the coupe, they should not mention BMW...

I think that will depend heavily on how Hyundai prices the Genesis Coupe. But yeah anyone that's anti-domestic is going to surely probably buy a Genesis Coupe over the Camaro. The 4cyl Genesis from the sources on the net that I've seen look to start out in the 22-24k range. And for the V6 around 28k+ with it looking probable that a fully loaded V6 Coupe costing @ 30k+.

The turbo 4 coupe is looking like it's going to be very popular with the tuner and probably younger crowd seeing that Hyundai derived its 4cyl turbo, from the same block of an EVO.

The Genesis V6 coupe, I would expect Hyundai is going to market it towards the same demographic of people that BMW and Infiniti market to with the G37, and 1 series & 3 series coupes....

So where do you throw the Camaro in the mix? Well if the Genesis 4cyl starts out around 22k that's Camaro LS territory. Which performance for price I'd give the advantage to the Camaro. And if the Genesis V6 coupe does start out around 28k, well that's Camaro SS territory although I don't think people are going to really compare a Camaro SS to a Genesis V6 coupe...

But again we'll see in the commercials and ads who Hyundai markets the Genesis Coupe towards...

You can't simply blow it off as crap. Hyundai is about to make some serious waves in the industry and the domestic market must pay close attention. The car should be looked at closely by GM.

As always, the V6 that is faster than the LS/LT Camaro is also more expensive and is likely to be as close in price to the 1SS as the 2LT. That being said, for their first real shot at a performance coupe its pretty good. Styling is subjective, tons of people say the Camaro looks awful and the Genesis is beautiful. To each their own.

Also, it amazes me that people on a GM forum will write off other manufacturers based on reliability from the 90's. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black . . .
