      Looks like they took the design philosophy of a CLS and added their own touches.
      I think the front end is hideous, but the rest is great.

      Side and rear are great, the front not so much.
      Looks great and an excellent alternative to the camcordtimas. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Looks great, and that instrument cluster looks fantastic.

      Yeah, well at least Hyundai made the overhangs far less ungainly.

      Toyota called, they want their design language back.

      Don't like the front from these shots, but the current Sonata is my third favorite in the class behind the Ford Fusion and Mazda 6. This new one has the potential to kick some serious ass.

      If only Toyota was fortunate enough to have that design language...

      I suspect this car has class out the ass.
      ....with the exception of that snout. I agree, it is just too much. Hopefully a mid-cycle refresh is much more reserved and handsome.

      Nice Lexus/Acura style instrument cluster.
      The rest of the design is typical Hyundai mishmash of existing themes.....with almost no cohesiveness.

      I think those unsure about the front end may find it more likable in this photo.

      Looks like any other coupey four door from the side. Believe me, nobody's trying to rip VW off.

      Anyway, a black mesh grille with a brightwork insert, something like a Legacy grille, would really improve the front end looks. Otherwise, I like it. Very dramatic.

      CLS ripped Rover, CC ripped CLS, Sonata ripped CC.
      I think yesterday, someone posted a Chinese version too.

      Yeah, those other pics look like they're trying to be in the Mo Money Mo Problems video.

      Looks great. I'm not diggin' the grill, but the overall design is strong, bold, and has "character".

      I'll reserve final judgement until I see better pics, but thus far I'm not feeling it. I do like the gauge cluster though.

      Indeed. The OP photos are terrible, but that one makes it look far more appealing. I hate poorly lit, poorly composed, overprocessed "photos"

      Ironic that people are accusing someone of ripping of the VW CC... when its design was fairly blatantly taken from Mercedes.

      And VW ripped off Mercedes, heck they are proud of it too judging by the CC commercials.
