Hyundai Genesis Coupe vs. Scion FR-S

What would you choose?

When deciding what car you should buy, there are always a tone of question to be answered. Which one is better, cheaper, faster, lowest on consumption?

So I though about weighting some facts and see which one better suites my needs.

Ah, I forgot about the protagonists, although the title gave away the charm: 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe and 2013 Scion FR-S . Ok, now, we are good.

The former one features a 2.0 liter engine that generates 274-hp and 275 lb-ft with the help of  a new turbocharger and larger intercooler. The peak torque is reached at 2000 rpm and the R-Spec model includes 4-piston Brembo brakes, a Torsen limited slip differential and a revised suspension tuning.


Although has the same 2.0 liter engine, Scion delivers only 200-hp and 151 lb-ft of torque, but makes up for the lightest vehicle on the market with 2,758 lbs curb weight. However, the price is a bit smaller ($24,200) than Hyundai’s which costs $24,250 for the Coupe models and $26,500 for the R-Spec model.

So, which one would you choose?

Hyundai Veloster 3Door Hatcback In South Korea

A new Hyundai is making its way to the market. The South Korean market!

Hyundai Veloster comes in a turbo, three-door hatchback  version. More powerful, beautiful and impressive. No wonder, since it has a turbo 1.6 liter GDi engine capable of generating 204 horsepower and peak torque of 27 kilogram-meters.

And the outside doesn’t disappoint either: hexagonal front grille, 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and taillights and manual or automatic transmission.

According to a Hyundai Motor official member “The Veloster Turbo is an upgrade to match customer demand for a higher performance model. The new 1.6-liter T-GDi four-cylinder engine features a high-compression, twin-scroll turbocharger that brings much more fun to curvy roads.”

What do you think about it?

New Changes for Hyundai Tucson!

It is time for some surgery in the Hyundai family!

Hyundai Tucson also known as ix35, is planning to do some remodeling and has already started with its face. This includes a new front grille which looks oddly similar to the latest models i30 and Santa Fe.

We don’t know exactly whether we will face other changes in what concerns the engines -for now there are 2 types available (2.0 and 2.4 four-cylinder with 165 and 176hp) only for Europe and three diesel (1.7 with 115hp and 2.0 CRDi with 136 and 184hp) for Europe.

New Pictures with the 2013 Hyundai Veloster!

We have managed to put our hands on the latest pictures of the 2013 Hyundai Veloster. Thanks to the 2012 Detroit Auto Show we can now admire Hyundai Veloster in all its beauty.

With remarkably updates concerning the engine, Veloster has jumped from 138 hp and just 123 lb-ft of torque to an impressive number of 201 hp at 6000 rpm and a significant 195 lb-ft of torque at just 1750 rpm.  But all this power needs an extra weight to carry it, so we can also talk about Veloster getting a little fatter: 2,800 lbs. Don’t worry, it fits perfectly!

In what concerns the transmission field, we have a  six-speed manual and six-speed dual-clutch automatic, available for better management.

And last but not least, its looks have been made sportier with the help of 18-inch wheels, Turbo-exclusive LED daytime running lights and the first matte paint offered by Hyundai: Matte Gray.
