    only won by a point!?!!??!?...

    You can't do a proper burnout in the Genesis coupe so that should be automatic points deduction!

    Not bad. Ya know as much as I like the Camaro, Im quite impressed with the Genesis Coupe since seeing it in action.

    I expected the Genesis Coupe to be more refined but it seems these are not normal times and the 2010 V6 Camaro aint "normal" at all in the sense that it should the stereotypical slow assed V6 bottom feeder for yore.

    I bet another automotive website will declare the Genesis a clear winner over the Camaro though, just wait for it.

    I find it sad that some people wish for GM to fail and can't comprehend any good news. A plausible explanation for this kind of behavior is that you have a miserable life so you wish the same to others. Cory Pham, Autoblog Poster

    GM must return its divisions to being interdependent entities within the corporation. Decentralize and free the different divisions talents to foster brand differentiation and customer loyalty.

    Based on what I heard them say I thought the Camaro would've one by more than one point myself.

    I've not seen the Genesis in real life - but compared to the Camaro it just seems somewhat generic out the outside and very generic interior. The Camaro may not have the most expensive materials - but at least it looks like thought was put into the design!

    Great to see the Camaro come out on top.

    The Camaro should do exceptionally well. As a daily driver you don't want to be punished, and all the reviews point out that the suspension is adequately sporty while also adequately forgiving of what pass for "roads" around North America today.

    I'm impressed with how well the Hyundai did. Not too fond of the styling, though.

    Overall, the Camaro wins on style. It just looks great. And if GM can upgrade the interior in a couple of years and lighten it a bit it'll only get better.

    I also think sheer nostalgia will win over a lot of buyers. I know it won me over.

    So the launch that was almost a burnout.....was that the timed 0-60 run?

    Surprising showing by the Genesis Coupe, though I'm glad the Camaro was given the nod. I have to tell you, and as others have mentioned, the Genesis has some real generic styling. GM engineers should take special shame that a friggen Hyundai beat the Camaro at the track, though!

    And for all those who believe there's a grand conspiracy on the part of media to take out the domestic automakers, make note of the finish of this (and many other) comparo(s). When Detroit builds a better car, media will sing its praises.

    I love that the V6 version is capable of a burnout like that and bark 'em in 2nd gear also! The fact that the Camaro won without the RS pkg is a testament to not having to have every option to still have a terrific car! I'd have to change those rims though!

    I've driven the Genesis in both V6 and I4 versions and its a fun car, but I didn't care for the interior. I'll take the Camaro any day, and as far as the interior goes, I don't expect it to be luxurious, especially at the price they are asking

    If they are gonna do comparisons between the genesis and the camaro they should be base model against base model as well as pitting the optional motors against each other in the up-level cars

    Genesis is nothing but your typical Korean copy of a German or Japanese car. Maybe be good but it screams poser el-cheapo Hyundia to me. The interior of the Genesis is surprisingly poor.

    The joke of it is that the 3.8 track has a list price of wait for it

    Car and Driver harping on GM interiors again. Notice that even though the Genesis had similar plastics, they focus more on the cheap plastics in the GM car. Also, the fact that the Genesis had "interesting compound shapes" gives them a pass on the interior. Please... if a GM car had that interior, they wouldn't be so kind and would probably mention the fact that it resembles the Infiniti G35 interior too much.

    Well, the Camaro won, but you can tell that they aren't going to give them too much to celebrate about.

    If GM could shave a few hundred pounds off the Camaro, they'd have an untouchable car in that segment. It's beautiful on the outside (interior, I'm not so thrilled with but is acceptable), RWD, has a potent V6, has a GREAT price. What's not to love?

    I dream of what could have been if GM were a healthy car company.

    The Genesis is really ugly. I do not like it at all. But I think they are onto something.

    Yes, they never mention the price difference...Several THOUSAND less for this particular Camaro. No brainer.
