Not much love for the 2.0?

If you read the four pages of this thread, there are many who replied in favor of the 2.0. Only reason I didn't buy it is because the car is to small for me. Bought the 3.8 G80 instead.
A. I did read the thread
B. My reply wasn’t to you
C. I’m not insulting the 2.0 so slow down, I don’t care why you chose a G80 when I’m on a G70 forum trying to help a 2.0 G70 member

Apologies for coming off strong. But this is the only car forum I’ve ever been on that another models owners hop on for constant commenting. Subaru Forester owners don’t hop onto the STI forums to give advice. Accord owners don’t hop onto the CTR sections etc. I get Genesis is a smaller company, but this is weird. So yea, I’m salty about that. Because more often than not, it causes confusion. Maybe it’s something I need to get used to, because it does hit my nerves. I know G80 and 90 owners are just trying to help, and it’s not nefarious

Obviously owning the G70 2.0 vs 3.3 happens at buy time, and I did go into the dealership to test drive and to buy the G70. The 2.0 was plenty for me, so I do feel qualified to comment on it. So while I cannot comment on G70 ownership experiences, I can comment on "love for the 2.0". Had the car been physically larger, I would have bought the 2.0. My comment to you, above, was based on my interpretation of "not much out there for the 2.0" as meaning there were few that liked that engine. Thanks for clarifying.

I don't feel as strongly as you, but its definitely an annoyance when there's misinformation being spread. It'd be nice if people would check which subsection of the forum posts are in before commenting. Doubt it'll happen though

I have a 2.0 and just got a 3.3 for my loaner. It's my first time driving the 3.3 and Oh. My. God. It's like a night and day difference between the two. I'm mind blown how fun driving the 3.3 is.
I like the 2.0 a lot -- and it is a terrific car, but I drove the 3.3 and just could not resist it. The car is amazing--both the 2.0 and 3.3.

Manual 2.0t here... thought I'd mention I'm able to slip the clutch to get the car off the line pretty quick (reading thru this thread people mentioned the 2.0t is slow off the line), but when I shift into 2nd I get that torque/power dip and the car kinda dies. I've revved the crap out of 1st gear to get into the power in 2nd gear and I'm able to almost bypass the that torque/power dip, but not quite. Haven't driven a 3.3T, mainly b/c they didn't have a RWD version at the dealership when I was looking (I don't want the added weight/complexity of the AWD system).

^ if only we had the option of RWD, 6MT, 3.3T...that would've been perfect
Maybe they don't have a manual transmission that can handle the added torque/hp of the 3.3TT? I'm assuming the manual in the G70 is related to the manual that was in the Genesis Coupe which had max torque of 295 ft/lbs vs 376 ft/lbs on the 3.3TT..

^ those numbers make sense from a stats point of view. but they are on the quick side of reported data. C&D just reported 6.4s 0-60.
these magazines don't test all on the same track or same day so there are a lot of different factors that come into play. I believe c&d doesn't even launch from the start and r&t does so does auto mobile mag.
