    Its got a lot of potential, ill admit that. Im pretty sure its a dumbed down Evo motor. so basically a flash and some boltons and you've got yourself some power!

    But i would never consider this over a STi, thats just nonsense. Congrats Hyundai for making a car with some decent power, but im sure everything else is basically like the Tibby, which i am not impressed with.

    i drove the 2.0 & hated it. felt cheap & heavy. no acceleration. no power. no comfort.

    but then again, i didnt like the 08 sti either (if thats what youre comparing it to)

    I would like to hear more from people. In a year when my WRX is paid off, I was going to look into one of these. 4cyl. w/track pack. My good friend is the sales manager for a Hyundai dealership. He sold me my Elantra DD for super cheap, and he showed me a number for the Genesis. I'd still keep the WRX. Just add another toy. The wagon seems to be turning into the truck of the family. Always hauling stuff, going mudding, carting the bloodhound.

    Another that interested me was the Genesis Sedan. 375hp w a German built trans to take said hp. Pretty sweet ride to cart my family around in. For a good price.
    I work on vehicles that make 650hp and 2400ft/lbs.

    You do realize that the V6 doesn't come in turbo, right? There is only the 2.0 turbo which is only good for 15.2-15.4 in the 1/4 mile. The V6 is non turbo and only good for about 13.7-13.8. So neither one would come close to the STI in a drag race. Even from a roll I think the STI would be able to hang with the V6. They are nice cars but in their individual segments they are not competitive. The V6 against the 370z, the Z is hands down the winner. The 2.0T against cars like the WRX, cobalt SS, SRT-4, all the other cars are better. Where Hyundai beats everyone is in the price, you just end up sacrificing performance.

    As for the rumors of the 2.0T just being a detuned EVO motor it's false. The motor does share some similarities to the EVO motor but it's not like if you swap a few parts you have an EVO motor. That being said the motor in the 2.0T has shown to produce some good power. Then again for the money spent on modding it to be 13 sec or faster you could easily have just got a faster car to begin with.

    Lastly, there is talks of in the near future offering a genesis coupe with the V8. This would be the same V8 that is offered in the sedan that makes near 400hp. If and when they ever do this it would be the only genesis worth buying.

    For the money, there are few better cars out there than the Genesis. It comes with a ton of standard features and both the 2.0 and 3.8 take to mods very well. Also, it's not intended to compete with the 370, Hyundai has stated that it's target was the G37, for which it has won almost every comparo against.

    agreed. FWIW- the 2010 speed3 is only 23k & is far more impressive.

    The Genesis also can't tow as much as my F350 SuperDuty. What a POS.

    The turbo Genesis had to be sold "de-tuned" or there would be no compelling reason to buy the v6. It's got plenty of potential and the chassis to put it to good use. Look how slow a stock DSM was back in the day.

    I can't believe anyone is actually be willing to own that stupid smiling Speed3. Turbo + FWD has nothing on a turbo + RWD.

    If I hadn't put all this on my Legacy I'd probably be in a Genesis now.

    i wasnt comparing them on a visual aspect, i was comparing them stock to stock performance wise.

    have you driven either one yet? if youre potentially basing it off of the previous MS3's you shouldn't. the new ones have significantly less torque steer/wheel hop than the other models did. it's cheaper than the genesis & IMO performed a lot better. maybe the genesis has more potential as far as modding in the future, but right out of the box i'd take the ms3 in a heartbeat

    More like 14.2-14.3 @ 99-100 mph and this is for the track version.

    must've been a ricer with stickers cause there is no turbo v6.

    And the V6 Genesis is still slower than the Sti straightline and way slower in the twisties, stock for stock.

    I stand corrected. Went back and double checked and you are right. My bad. Just futher proves my point that the STI is in another league compared to the genesis. Then again the STI is more expensive
