2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 beats 2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe in Edmunds test

Hyundai wasn’t at all shy in admitting that it is targeting the Infiniti G Coupes with its new 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe. Therefore, it’s only right that many auto publications will be putting the two coupes face-to-face during their test-drive of the new Korean offering.

Edmunds compared the 2009 Infiniti G37 coupe to the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 in its recent comparison test. Power for the 2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe comes from a 3.7L V6 that produces 330-hp with a peak torque of 270 lb-ft. That allows for a 0 to 60 mph run in 5.7 seconds. The 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is powered by a 3.8L V6 making 306-hp and a maximum torque of 310 lb-ft. However, the Genesis Coupe does 0 to 60 mph much slower than the Infiniti G37 with a time of 6.4 seconds.

Pricing for the 2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe starts at $35,900 while the 2010 Genesis Coupe 3.8 starts at $10,900 less with an MSRP of $25,000. Adding the Track Package brings the pricing up to $29,500 giving your Genesis Coupe a stiffer suspension, a Torsen limited-slip differential, Brembo brakes and 19-inch wheels.

While we’ll leave it up to you to decide which is better – here is Edmunds conclusion: “It’s the undeniable value equation that tips this test in the favor of the 2010 Hyundai Genesis 3.8. You simply get more car for your dollar with the Genesis coupe. Sure, it’s not as much car as the 2009 Infiniti G37, but at two-thirds the cost, it doesn’t have to be.”
