      So ugly, so cheap. Must have blown the budget on the Sonata, which was not the right idea IMO. This will be the volume seller

      Probably a touch pad of some sort to control lights, etc.

      Man, this is probably the worst new-car reveal in some time. This thing has zero redeeming qualities from a design standpoint.

      I read about it somewhere, can't be bothered to find the link. Simply styling feature (useless).

      Much like the rest of the car, I don't get it.

      It really is just a design feature, oddly.

      That's just... weird.

      Think of all the fingerprints on that, especially on all the rentals, because of people pushing on it to get it to do something.

      Man. This is ****ing heinous. Hyundai is now 0 for 3 on complete redesigns with the Santa Fe, Sonata and now this. Horrible, horrible, horrible.

      I just don't understand it. All three were legitimately the lookers of the segment, even if their drive was not noteworthy. The YF Sonata (2011-2015) and the MD Elantra/AD pre-refresh Elantra (2011-2018), and the Santa Fe Sport were all great looking designs inside and out, top to bottom, and the top tier trims all felt legitimately well made and at least put forth a smidgen of luxury.

      And Hyundai has now completely ruined all three of them. They are all now ghastly, horrid looking things. I just don't understand it when they've retained a majority of the designers who put together those previous cars.

      No cohesion, just lines and creases for the sake of it. The current gen, in pre-refresh guise, was a very good looking car as already noted. Why they threw it all away for this disaster is truly puzzling.

      And the C-pillar is straight out of GM's playbook.

      The previous model, pre-refresh, is still a great looking car.

      Which I agree was the high-point of Elantra design before that awful F/L.


      Seems like the designers tried to spice up the new Elantra, but they failed in making it a cohesive design (way too over-wrought in places).

      It's like the 2 design teams (for the exterior and interior) didn't speak to each other w/ the dash/interior getting the clean/elegant lines and the exterior having too much going on.
      Why you wouldn’t (buy an Optima SX):

      Because you have your eyes on the Frigidaire Limited Edition Camry that you saw last weekend at the neighborhood Autoplex

      The grill is off an Audi down to the little red Turbo badge mimicking the red S badges Audi puts on their grills and the headlights are mildly modified Jag XF lights. The rest of it is pretty generic.

      Dont understand why people boast about this gen Elantra, it was very anonymous and a bit chubby.

      Yeah, you saw a lot of them in rental fleets, but I think it resonated well with its core buyers. I still see a lot of the 2017-18 Elantra. OTOH, I'm holding out for a pre-owned 6MT Sport for the right price, waiting out the virus.

      Again, Hyundai was doing the hexa-shaped grille before Audi, and Audi started to stretch their headlights (towards the A-pillar) after Kia (under Schreyer) started doing it.

      Even Merc these days has adopted increasingly stretched headlights and some of their grilles have started to get a rough hexa-shape.

      The original hexa shaped grill on old Hyundai concepts didnt look like what's on the Elantra or Audis. It was not a single frame hexa grill.

      I actually love the new Sonata's design, but can't stand this one.
