It's heavy, it's RWD, and not everyone wants a V6.
I swear jwaters, you gotta take the Hyundai blinders off from time to time dude.
I guess you missed my post above. I'm not trying to insinuate that the Genesis is all things to all people, but as enthusiasts I think we can agree that RWD > FWD.
I realize not all buyers want RWD, but I know most families want a roomy comfortable interior, a nice quiet cabin, and a roomy trunk. The Genesis exceeds the Camcord in these key areas while delivering similar fuel economy (1-2 mpg less, V6 vs. V6) and better driving dynamics. True, it does weigh a whopping 165 lbs. more than a V6 Accord EX-L, but as driving appliances go it's simply a superior vehicle on many fronts. And as joe said, there is always the Sonata for those who prefer and/or feel safer with FWD.
None of which negates the fact that the Camry and Accord are good, solid choices with plenty of positive attributes. Still, given the choice between an attractive and somewhat rare RWD sedan over an all too common FWD sedan I see on every single street corner I know which one I'd take, especially if said RWD car was in the same general price range.
