Ok yes hyundai has come a long way from elantra, congrats on genesis research & development Hyundai :bravo: But Like I said op, Overated cow, on wot the car goes MOOO. This is why they had to make drastic changes in performance area, because we & them see eye to eye that both cars were vip members in overrated club. Lets check the genesis resume real briefly before looking at the new gen....A stock 8gen si will Park the 2.0 turbo & will pull on the 3.8 v6 by a car minimum....stock 7gen accord pulls the stock si with no iVtec, LSD or high compression...u wanna know why ? Underrated but so is the si.
Another thing u can't determine, power to weight ratios realistically by concept or manufacture numbers...more like dyno numbers, power band, gear ratios etc
Examples of some Overrated cars;
g35 306, the 3.8 v6 eclipse 260, the first gen cobalt ss 260 sc (the following gen was a win tho turbocharged), the fail hyundai's u strive for both 4 & 6 cyl (2013 models might be pending this list also, hopefully not for the Hyundai fans)
Examples of some underrated cars;
Of course the 7th gen v6 accords
with only 240 @ a cows weight like u said op, srt4s 230hp,8th gen civic si 197, hr 350z's 306 which run side by side with 370z's 330 with more aerodynamics n weight reduction
There is no credit due for genesis...I wanna see the v6 beat the new mustang lol or camaro...better yet see them beat each other...watch the 2.0 win over the 3.8 stock. Because when both modified the 2.0 would outrun the 3.8 in the current gen genesis models.
