That nose is horrible. I actually like the Mazda 6 more.

Hmm. I have to admit, that thing looks like a true luxury car (unlike the previous generation). Of course, I have a sinking feeling that as Hyundai becomes more technologically advanced, the reliability of their vehicles will decrease. Of course, there's still that 100,000 mile warranty.

Oh, and has anyone else noticed that Hyundais are getting more expensive?
Still, one must give credit where credit is due.

I have to agree. Headlights look like a Sebring or new Subaru only someone took the smudge tool in Photoshop and made it even more droopy. And what the hell is going on with that grille? Looks like it's been in an accident.

Interior looks nice though. And damn, they did mess up the new Altima too.. it was fine before.

And I wish people wouldn't be so fooled by their "100,000 miles warranty" marketing crap. That's just power train. Don't think for a second you can take that thing to the dealer with 75k miles on it for the stuff people bring their BMWs in for (before 50k). Don't fall for the marketing.

Here are some videos of the sonata
http://www.autoblog.com/2009/09/21/v...r-korean-audi/

In the comments I though this was funny....


Quote:
Don't drive the CC - ripped off the CLS.

Don't drive the Accord - ripped off '08 Sonata, BMW Hofmeister kink and Saturn

Don't drive the new XJ - ripped off the 2011 Sonata (note the similar greenhouse/C-pillar - way more similar than the Sonata is to the CC/CLS), Bentley and Kia.

Don't drive the G8 which ripped off the previous gen BMW 5 Series.

Don't drive the Passat, Subaru Legacy, Infiniti G37 and a whole host of others which ripped off BMW's Hofmeister kink.

Don't drive the Lancer which ripped off Audi.

Don't drive the E Class which ripped off the Lexus GS (which, in turn, had previously ripped off Buick).

Don't drive the LaCrosse - ripped off a no. of makes; and so on and so on.

Say what you want, but the overall exterior of the 2011 Sonata really looks like nothing on the road today.

^ that's funny. I swear it favors the Camry.

and though I'm not a fan of the front end, I expect this car to sell by the boatload.

I have to agree.

I see Camry + Lexus LS + that Benz pictured above. with a small car accident deforming the grille.

but hey...whatever works. all things considered, it looks better than any other cars in the sub $25,000 class that I can think of.

it looks great -- but mind you, it will be probably look like SHAT once it hits our shores. They're really tarted up in their domestic markets.

Civic in the headlight/grille cluster, and similar hood to the Civic.

Still a solid design. Not a "cheap" knockoff.

I don't get it. Looks pretty good to me especially for a $15k or so car...

Nope. They're both generic.

There's only so much you can do with a modern mainstream design that's proven to look good; A swoopy roofline (how could that be exclusive to the CC? car profiles have always been progressively more swoopy, this just makes sense), strong character line (CC copied the E92), strong lower suage line, and wide amorphic taillights are all that are similar, and it's not like you can do much to those without compromising sales because it'll end up looking awkward.

The Hyundai's front end is, dare I say it, more adventurous than the cyborg looking CC's, and they have different DLOs, trim, and front/rear designs. The Genesis even flows better and makes better use of symmetry.

I've never been a huge fan of the boring-as-shit CC anyways.
