Sup Ladies and Gents,

I am a 25 year old web developer from Cincinnati. I've been watching Hyundai over the past 4-5 years. I have to say Hyundai is dominating the market right now. The overall car design and performance is staggering. And for the price?! and that warranty?!

I've been in the car scene for awhile. My first car was a 1993 camry. A total turd. I ended up swapping it with a 3sgte, and driving it until it got ran over by an oversized truck. I then picked up an 1989 Supra and built the 7mgte to just shy of 400whp. It was a turd, but a fun turd. I really enjoyed that car, it just had a ton of personality. Right now, I'm daily driving an 04 Spec-v. It's a fun car but has it share of reliability issues due to Nissan neglecting every recall that should of been made years ago.

So i'm done with Nissan, and until Toyota comes out with something more exciting then wallpaper, they won't be seeing my business either. And don't give me that FR-S bullshit. Subaru dropped the ball by leaving out the snail. Sure it handles badass-ily, but you still get waxed by a minivan on the highway. I'll wait for the STi version.

Anyway, I'm considering a veloster turbo or a 2.0T Genesis Coupe. I haven't decided quite yet... so convince me.

Sup Ladies and Gents,

Well only you will know what fits your needs...
The Geni Coupe is a very impressive ride, and depending on what model you are looking at you can be at a price point that is indeed close to a VT
So much depends on what you need out of your ride
Clearly the VT will have more space to move stuff as its a hatch, and the GC is just a trunk
The GC though is a bit more of a sporty car as it is RWD, yet the VT with its FWD will be great in very different weather conxitions such as dealing with snow
What are your needs from a car?

I could be in Milwaukee within the next year, so the FWD option is probably the better choice.

I really do miss RWD, and the overall look of the GC I like more. But, I do a ton of traveling so the mileage of the VT would be pretty badass. the space would be nice for the traveling as well. Er....

I don't think the VT will be a rocket ship by any means. I've owned much faster cars, but this day and age I'm looking more for a total package. Something that has a unique design, decent mpg and quick. I think the VT covers all of the bases.

I think that's why everyone is liking the VT. FWD tends to be more practical, having rear seats, and decent interior space over pure sports cars is great for people who are looking for more than a track toy.

First off welcome aboard!! Secondly that Genesis Coupe is awesome. I've been trying to convince my girlfriend to get one (She loves the Evoque)

At any rate, your looking at 2 awesome cars. Flip a coin on this one :) Enjoy the forums!
