Hello forumers, I am currently in the process of buying a new car, and I've had my eyes set on two different models. The two cars are both astounding, and it would be great to get out of my Nissan Juke in to one of these bad-boys. So the models are either the 2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, or the 2016 Scion FR-S. I will be supplying information and photos below but I am looking for honest answers here. If you are not old enough to drive, it I highly unlikely you actually know a lot about cars (unless you were like me as a kid), but don't be afraid to answer. So here they are...

Hyundai Genesis Coupe
Here are pictures of the front, rear and interior. I will be getting this car in black only.

Scion FR-S
HEre are the pictures of the front, rear and interior. I will be getting this car in black or grey only.

Now for the comparisons...
Both cars are flashy, four seats and have two doors. I particularly enjoy the Hyundai's look, and the tail. Statistically, Hyundai has better safety, while the Scion is still safe but has had more complaints against the Hyundai.
The Genesis Coupe runs on a 3.8 V6 engine, with an automatic transmission of 6 speed. The Scion only runs on a 2.0 V6, yet again with an automatic transmission of a 6 speed. The Hyundai hits around 25 MPG (highway), as the scion easily surpasses it with 34 MPG (highway). I also have a personal preference for the Hyundai's interior, but the Scion offers much more comfort while driving. I could sit here and tell you a hundred and one things about each car, but I'll leave it at. Please help me decide guys!

Well, I'm not old enough to drive nor am I a car expert but I know a bit and I guess I could say that the Hyundai might be better in terms of overall reliability but the Scion would be the more fuel efficient choice. Of course, we'd need to know what you plan to do with these cars in the next few years (like long trips across the country every month, or just small trips to the city everyday).

Oh yes, I forgot that. I'm in a big city, and I'll be there for a while. As well, the chances of me ever taking a drive over 3 hours would probably be once every two months or so.

Do you have money to pay for the car? If not, save up money till you do, or you go into debt.

I'm currently a senior in high school and I'm taking an economic class that teaches me about saving money and putting money into CD and all that to earn interest. We talk about buying cars and all that, and from what I have learned is that if you don't have the money to buy a new car, then don't buy it until you have the money and pay cash. If you have an older car, make a trade in and use your old car with money that you've saved up to upgrade to a cooler car. If you're going to have to get a loan, or any of that, then you will end up going to debt. You also will end up paying more cash for the car then the actual price if you make payments every month.

Be smart and pay cash for your car! :sweatdrop:

Well first you can forget about engine speed that really just determines your acceleration, which no matter how good or bad it is, everyone just adapts to it and you'll be within the legal regulatioms anyway.

MPG(highway):$ is the ratio you want to look at. Though im not for paying for cars on the recent year, the scion would be a better choice.

^^^ economics or Dave Ramsey will tell you the same thing. But I doubt our sayings will make a difference on your opinion OP, as you seem to know the cars but not whether its a smart buy.

I choose a ferrari :D

Lol.

Both cars are under thirty thousand dollars, and I'm looking on keeping the car I choose for a while. So I could get it paid off, it wouldn't be a ridiculous feat, but I also need something that has quality and will last.

I'd tell you to take the Hyundai one, because it's more reliable, you know.

And I personally prefer the interior than just the seat because if you don't drive for too long per day, you won't be tired anyway. However, if you think Scion's seats are WAY more comfy, I'd take that one if I were you, as it's tiring driving if the seats are not comfortable. But if the Hyundai's seats are quite comfortable, to the point that at least your butt still stands sitting there for 30+ minutes, go ahead and take Hyundai.

Overall, I'd suggest you to pick Hyundai over Scion.


Off topic:
I really hate uncomfortable seats like my mom's car - I can't stand driving her car.

Since you seem to have missed my last post:

There is no V6 option on the FR-S, which is a rebranded Subaru.
The two don't compare. But whatever you do, don't make the car sound like a fart cannon or put bodykits to make your car look like a ricer. If you do, you'll get a lot of hate.

I'm going with the hyundai since you didn't say anything about fuel prices.

I saw your post, you mention the boxer engine. Yes I had noticed that, but on Scion's site they had some sort of V6 option. It could've been a mistake but I saw it somewhere.

Ok I think I've come to the same decision as you guys. I'll get the Hyundai Genesis. All in all, it has a better interior, engine and reliability. Although it does cost a bit more for gas, it is cheaper on insurance and is still a great looking car. As well, Scion is associated with Subaru and Toyota with the same engine designs, and not all of them have the high quality Hyundai offers. Thank you guys for all of your help, really!

Choose a white/grey car, black cars extract more heat, which means higher air conditioning, higher air condition means more gas, more gas means more money..
