I think it's odd to see a comparison like this. I think the cars the Hyundai should be compared to are the Mustang, 370Z, RX-8, Accord V6 coupe, Nissan Altima coupe, and even the new Camero. I know all of those cars can be had with a nav system, but if you take the nav system out of the equation those cars are all much closer competitors in terms of price, performance, and feature content to the Genesis coupe track model. Why Edmunds chose to test a $44,000 luxury coupe against the Genesis coupe is a bit of a mystery to me. As good a bargain as the new Genesis coupe is, anyone who can afford a $44,000 automobile probably won't be cross shopping it with a $30,000 automobile.
Still, I'm proud of Hyundai. They have completely transformed themselves over the past 10 years or so. Now they are every bit as reliable, well made, fuel efficient, safe, and fun to drive as Honda, Toyota, Nissan, or Mazda. I know I love my 2009 Sonata V6 Limited. The car has been flawless in the year I've owned it. Someday when I'm ready for a new car it will definitely be another Hyundai. They have proven themselves to me. I have to imagine they keep the Honda, Toyota, and Nissan executives up at night sweating.

If anything, to get a realistic, compare 2 bare models with the same engine, THEN compare
1. Hyundai Genesis Fully loaded
2. Base G37 Coupe.
The two cars featured in the comparo are closely matched in terms of specs.
It doesn't matter how you cut it, a base Genesis V6 vs. a base Infiniti G37, or Genesis V6 Track vs. Infiniti G37S, the price differences are quite a bit.

So buy the Hyundai.
Its important to put things into perspective, the G lost to the 335i by 2.3 points in this article. So the next best thing to the 335i is the Hyundai Genesis? I am no fan of the 335i, but I respect it, and putting the Genesis next to this icon is disturbing to say the least.
I am no hater either and will say congrats Hyundai, this is a worthy accomplishment

The 2.0T starts at $22,000. With a couple mods it'll be better looking and faster than the 3 series. This car is definitely a game changer. And it looks so damn good too. I think Hyundai is going to have a mid-year re-design for the front end though.
#13 of 123 Worst IL comparo ever

This review is a joke, before long IL could be too. The Mailbu Hybrid IL Track Tested article was better than this - and that was not good at all my friends.

0-60 of 6.4 second for 2010 genesis is unbelievable.
suddenly i see test record from all major magazines.
the 0-60 for genesis is mostly between MotorTrends' 5.5 to 5.8 from popular mechanics. even 3.8 genesis sedan was recorded 6.3 on mortor trend.
I saw edmunds' 0-60 for hyundais were alway about 1-2 second slower than other magazines test drives.
2006 Sonata V6 was more than 8 sec compare to other magazines mid 6 secs.
2003 tiburon v6 was also more than 8 sec compare to others low 7's
I could see no big differences in other makers(acuras, infinity, hondas) records by edmunds w/ other major magazines, but Only hyundais are recording really bad compare to other research companies.
check out Motor Trends test Drive. the coupes ZF auto tranny recorded better performace then manual.

You might want to compare the 370Z with the not-yet-named 2 seater sports car Hyundai is thinking of building as the more appropriate comparison.

Funny how the automotive press test experts never spend anytime on slamming BMW for not including an LSD with the sport package. If our testers feel they don't need an LSD in a 3 or 5 series then what does it matter if one car has a mechanical and the other has a viscous LSD?

In my opinion comparing 2010 Genesis Coupe vs G37 Coupe is right on.
Yes, there is quite a difference in price, but in terms of specifications,contents
and type(2dr coupe,RWD,2+2 seats) these two cars are very similiar. Infiniti G37
wins in refinement,better interior,slightly better engine/drive performance over
However, any way you look at it, Genesis will cost at least 8 to 10K less than
G37, with slightly less performance. Isn't this kind of familiar? If you compare
G37 to BMW 3 Series, it's exactly the same! 3 Series have slight edge in
performance over G37, but will cost at least another 8K with similiar equipment.
In terms of long term ownership, especially with longer warranty, Hyundai Genesis
will be more reliable than 3 Series. And it will run with Reg. Unleaded.
Although Hyundai will probably sell more Genesis sedan than coupes, this may
be more of a serious achievment than the sedan model!
For some folks, famous logo/name means more than anythingelse, but this
vehicle seems like a serious contender in its segment.
#18 of 123 Duh, what about the 370Z
Mar 01, 2009 (5:54 am)
The Nissan 370Z doesn't matter, huh? With a base price of $30,625, 0-60 in 4.8sec, and .98g it kicks everyones butt. ( Car & Driver April '09 ). I suggest Edmunds do their homework before making rash statements.
