I can't wait to see the final result.

I wish Hyundai would do "GLI" versions of the Elantra and Sonata ditto the Optima.

A Fusion ST is begging to be built.

These would not sell by the millions, but they would give an undeniable halo effect to some really competent sedans out there.

Yes please! After the Honda Civic the Elantra is the most boring car I've ever driven. This update should handle at least as okay as the new Forte. And less cheap-swooped design would be great.

the sport steering setting only ever so slightly fixes the problem but its still not great. And half the time I forget to switch it anyway.
Every time I drive it I get annoyed my parents chose it over the Golf. Gonna try even harder for the Golf next time around now that its cheaper

Hyundai and Ford must share the same styling studio. So many similar elements.

It looks like a refresh.

New grille, tweaked headlamps, and a bunch of bling. Hyundai/Kia must know that their DRL LEDs are a joke right? They always come out looking blue-tinted and cheap. It's almost like seeing Audi go through the LED emergence in the early 2000s, but it's no longer attractive.

While I think it's disappointingly safe for a new model year, I've always found the base Elantra very handsome and interesting to look at. There are some refinements here like the overall tightness of lines and bodywork, but this looks like the same formula Hyundai used on the Sonata (mild refresh looks) and sales are in a big slump.

That's most definitely a fake. Looks like a combo of the i30 facelift up front and the Genesis or something near the rear. Also, there appears to be an Oldsmobile Silhouette in the background, which makes no sense if the car is somewhere where those plates are legal...

DLO doesn't line up with existing spyshots. Same goes for the mirrors and door cutlines. Someone's obviously just trying to increase traffic to his site yet again.

EDIT: On second glance, I figured it out. It's the i40 sedan facelift...the front of which was already revealed with the wagon facelift

Everything lines up:

He obviously won't respond, because he only posts when he has a link to his own sites, but ata10: It's quite embarrassing that I was able to figure this out in an hour or two when you're the one with a Hyundai fan blog or whatever it is you want to call it.

Remind me again why we should trust or pay any attention to anything on your site(s)?
