Are you saying that all Mexicans and South Americans living in U.S. but that supports Mexico should get shot?

Your very narrow minded Korean, .....I bet your a Anglophile...

Its partially due to the Korean War in which U.S. help us out by defeating the communist side. White ignorant Americans still think that South Korea is same as Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, etc.

The only Koreans that getting love is the Korean girls, in which all White guys who has Asian-fetish fever loves anything thats an Asian hole. Just look how the American media portrays us Asians, Asian women are always sexual partner to White guys while, Asian men are either Nerdy asexual guy or Kung Fu master who saves the world but gets to go home with no girl.

VIVA MEXICO, 5-0..!!!!!

Looks like a Camry/Avalon. Nothing special IMO, I liked the old Sonata better.

Looks like a Peugeot-407. If that interior is any indication. Hyundai may have leap frogged the Japanese.

I had a chance to check out a prototype build a few weeks ago. The car looks really great in person, even though in some of the pictures the car may look a bit "off". The proportions are spot-on and I just really liked it inside and out. The car presented itself very well and looked well balanced as far as the overall asthestics and stand are concerned.

The powertrain choices will be very interesting, too. Six is gone and six is in with a four.


I haven't had a chance to drive one yet, but I did check out the whole car from the engine bay to the trunk, from the bare chassis to the assembled interior, etc. I personally like the current generation Sonata but this one will be even better. Just a few more months and we will begin full production to crank them out. If you are going to be in the market for a mid-size/large-size family sedan, I really would recommend taking a look at it.

Toyota did that with the Camry this year also, although like the Camry not many folks buy that version. Eventually, the Accord may catch up in that dept.

It looks nothing alike, your blind. Your trying to hard to find something thats isnt there..

Now try to implement your standards to every other car out there, then you will see everyone copied each other...

Not too crazy about the front end but the interior looks incredible. Almost too nice for the market its aimed at.

Six is gone and six is in with a four.
And, I don't get it? Is it getting a new six? The 3.8 I presume.

KDM, possibly.

USDM, we won't begin production until next year. It is in prototype build stage at this point.

But Korea almost always gets the cars before the U.S. does.

The illustrations make the overall shape flow better....the press pics make that character line look out of place....a bit too strong....and the front end is very similar to the illustrations...but looks odd and weird now because the rest of the car got the typical vanilla treatment (which is typically the case for most makers as the car moves from the drawing board to the final product).

...again, real world pics might make it look better.

Looks really nice, crisp lines and flows well front to back. Interior controls and instrumentation reminds me of a Lexus.

The front end looks much better and more subtle in person.

The grille gives you an impression of an eagle with its wings spread out. It's really cool. The cameras can't quite catch the bends well.

P.S. Heated seats in the rear.
