Just going by the little that I have read about both cars and the spec sheet, I think I'd rather go with the hyundai. I need to have some torque in my life and with the supposed changes to the chassis, steering, and shifter on the GC, it should make for a nicely balanced combination. Then again, my opinion might be different if I ever get to drive both cars.
The Genesis Coupe will probably show it's tail-lights to the Scion/Subaru more often than not...
I voted for the Scion/Subaru still, both are not lookers IMO but the Scion/Subaru looks better than the Genesis Coupe. Always been a Toyota fanboy(have had two mr2 turbos and would love an MK4 Supra). For the price, I would rather have a second hand 370z over either though(and it looks A LOT better).
The Toyobaru is so much smaller than the GC in weight and size and, actually, better power:weight plus the smaller wheels/tires and no dick-window. And the GC refresh looks like it has two faces like: over :|
Cars shouldn't have two faces.
All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.
Funny, I was so hellbent on the FR-S I even inquired about putting down a deposit at the local Scion dealership. Kyron's photo put the size into perspective, if it's my only car, I want to be comfortable when sitting on the 405. At 6'1 with 36'' leg, I find the current GC comfy and the Rspec package is a great deal, VERY sporty. I killed myself dd'ing an NB Miata for a year and won't do that to my spine again. 2.0t R spec with a 6 speed for me.
Prev GC my head hit the glass when sitting in the backseat, so take that into consideration as well. Both backseats are short distance/kids only.
