Spy Shots Are Awesome!

For me to steal! Check out this putative 2011 Hyundai Sonata! It’s not ginormous! And its Californian curves raise my expectations, even though they (the curves)’re camo-clad! But does it hasten the day when we’ll resort to coining the term “Camccordnata”?

I think it looks pretty good with the camo off. http://www.globalmotors.net/rendered-speculation-2010-hyundai-sonata/ Hope they don't shrink the interior. It's just about right-sized for my taste right now. I'd go for a hybrid to replace my Prius. We'll keep our '09 Sonata (which is good for towing, unlike hybrids). I've heard the Sonata hybrid is going to have a new Hyundai engineered 6-ratio automatic, powerful electric motor-generator between the engine and transaxle and a very powerful new tech battery with Hyundai exclusive technology (I think engineered with LG?). I've heard that some 80% of the capacity of the battery will be available for use rather than about 30% on current Ni-Cad batteries (i.e. virtually all gas-electric hybrids now on the road).
I keep hoping that they'll take that Genesis platform and make a 3-series sized rear driver to complement the coupe...[sigh]...
Hopefully they can learn to manufacture catalytic converters that can last more than 70k miles.
"Regarding that roof arch and side body character line running from the front wheel cutout through the rear fender, makes me think that Mercedes should consider a lawsuit." Or maybe Hyundai should consider suing Mercedes. Tiburons, Santa Fes and Sonatas have been wearing curved fender creases for years... long before Mercedes ever slapped them on a minivan.
