    I've never been a fan of the current Sonata. It resembles a four door Toyota Solara, one of the most vile designs ever. But I do recognize that the current Sonata helped Hyundai move beyond the third-world cars they used to make. This one isn't as much of a step forward. They've taken the basic A7, Fusion, Rapide silhouette and remove all the sexiness from it. Maybe it will look less dumpy in person.

    Still a good looking car, even if it's a bit more generic now. And if you're going to riff of another car's looks, you can do a lot worse than Audi.

      Hey, looking like an Audi is what moves Kias! I know there's quite a bit of inter-company rivalry going on there, but this is going to far, Hyundai!

  • Lou_BC This would be a good colour for anyone that would actually use their truck offroad, on gravel roads, in the winter or poor visibility situations.
  • EBFlex “getting a full charge in just about three hours or so. Not that it would’ve mattered if I couldn’t charge – I’d just run on gas.”And this folks is why PHEVs are the future and pure EVs will remain vanity products for the rich.
  • Pmirp1 Simple. Electrics are not yet prime time. In time, they may become the norm. For now, they are still the new kid on the block. A curosity. A status symbol. They are not the work horse of American life. Everyone knows that. You buy it because it is fast. It makes you feel like, you know, Prius like 10-15 years ago.Electrics have improved. Tesla is without a doubt the standard bearer. Still, long way to go before they can be your ONE vehicle. So companies charge more because these things are coooool. Not real.
  • Rich Benkwitt I’ll take that red and white 2 door and I guess the 4 banger so I can have the manual tranny just like my 1969 Bronco. I have my Wildtrak on order now waiting impatiently!
