As the big Japanese auto makers get lazy and fat, (Toyota) Hyundai is really making leaps and bounds in quality and value. eg. new Santa Fe, Vera Cruz, Alantra, etc....Best Warranty Too!

Does it look good? Not really.

Does it looks upscale? Yes.

Mission accomplished.

It's definitely a car that looks better in person than it does in photos.

I was pleasantly surprised when I first saw one.

WTF?? The back looks like the new 5 series back. And that "shark fin" almost makes it look like a BMW from the back. If you took that hyundai badge off and put a BMW one on, it'd ALMOST past as the new 5 series, IMHO

I'm becoming more and more impressed by Hyndaui.

It looks like a cross between a Lexus and Maybach.

Other tidbits from our time in K-town:

* The Hyundai Corporation comprises 42 companies, including rolling stock, parts, steel, construction, logistics, finance, R&D, and IT.
* The Hyundai-Kia Automotive Group (HKAG) is the world's #6 automaker.
* Hyundai made its first car, the Pony, in 1967. Before that it built Ford Cortina and Granada kits imported from Europe.
* Hyundai motors has 6 R&D centers. It also has a proving ground that it "cribbed" from another automaker by looking at Google maps.
* Hyundai's Ulsan, Korea factory is the world's biggest by volume, putting out 1.2 million units annually.
* Last year Hyundai sold 1.7 million cars in Korea, 911,000 internationally.
* Iran and Egypt are the largest importers of Hyundais (build kits).
* In 2009 Hyundai will sell an Elantra that runs on LPG in Korea.
* Hyundai plans on having a fuel cell vehicle in production by 2010.
* On creating the Genesis: Hyundai got the idea for it five years ago; designing the body took three years; it cost $500 million to develop and included 23 months of development work; reliability testing ran for 800,000 miles.
* The Tau engine took 100 engineers four years and $260 million to develop.
* Technologies such as direct injection and air suspension were nixed for cost/benefit reasons.
* The Genesis is ULEV II compliant.
* There is no plan for a diesel Genesis in the near future, nor will the Genesis be going to Europe. The car will go to North America, China, and Russia.
* Hyundai is developing paddle shifters, but don't expect them on the sedan any time soon.
* There is no 4-wheel-drive version planned.
* The guide lines on the reversing camera screen don't turn when you turn the steering wheel.
* All workers in the paint, body, assembly, and quality departments of the Genesis factory have at least 19 years of experience.
* HKAG has 7 new vehicles planned for the US by 2010.
* Now that Hyundai and Kia each have their own designers, Hyundai is planned to be modern and refined, Kia will be sport and dynamic.
* In spite of the economic climate, Hyundai plans on adding forty new dealers to its U.S. network.
