The brand new Scion FR-S is out to show the world (in it various automaker versions) just how spectacular of a sports car it can really be, but can it live to some of the veterans on the market? AutoGuide recently went searching for an answer to that question when it stacked the FR-S against the now famous Hyundai Genesis Coupe. Both models are priced under $30K and come with 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engines, but the Genesis Coupe delivers an extra 74 HP (274 HP vs. 200 HP). So, what does the FR-S bring to the table to try to overtake the Genesis Coupe?

AutoGuide’s goal was to see which of the two models was the quickest around their 1.86-mile 11-turn test track. The results show that the Genesis Coupe earned a time of 1 minute and 25 seconds. The FR-S wasn’t too far behind as it posted a time of 1 minute and 26 seconds. With such close results, it would really come down to everything else. Which vehicle would you buy?

Can I own both?! I am a car enthusiast who collects supercars. Those two really caught my attention.

I’m already expecting the Hyundai Coupe to follow the trail behind the Scion FR-S. I thought that the FR-S is faster than Genesis, but I was wrong.

For me they both won on that race even if Genesis Coupe earned a time of 1 minute and 25 seconds while FR-S only behind with a time of 1 minute and 26 seconds.

Scion FR-S win on this pit right? I don’t have any time to watch the video and I have a feeling that the Scion is better than the Hyundai.

Why do they have to pit on each other? I know both of them has a good performance.

Flo Rida has never been interested on super cars until Bugatti comes along. I like his idea on showing his Bugatti on a silver paint.

They both good cars. I mean if I were to choose what is the best, I will surely have a hard time determining it.

Both show great spectacular movement on that video. I like them both on their performances.

The Coupe is interesting to me. I like the Hyundai Genesis Coupe on doing a mile run like that.

This is a good opportunity for both of them to show off what they can do when it comes to speed. I love watching them race against each other.
