Looks pretty nice, more upscale in a way. The top rear corner of the dlo would look nicer if it were more round.

If only the Elantra could've gotten that interior.

The interior says Mazda to me, however it does look like a nice place, but the "glued on Ipod screen" stereo looks way less convincing with buttons around (though I do prefer some buttons for basic functions, but they should be repoisitioned)

Some revealing teasers. I like:

Detailing looks classy enough. Should continue to be a seller

While looking VERY sharp, the front is more Infinity to me than Hyundai...and the back is as Teutonic as it gets. Still, give it a nice contemporary interior and you got a best seller again.

Hyundais and KIAs are among the sexiest in their segments lately, not a small feat. Not only that, but they are among the most reliable and well built.

I agree and its a shame because the new Corolla hatch (Auris) in particular looks cool from the outside and stylish on the inside. If only they could apply the same magic as in the 86 coupe to the dynamics and steering of the car...

The front end gave me infinity vibes as well. Imagine a nice and classy i30 that looks vaguely like an Infinity, selling for thousands less than the new Q30 hatchback (which is just expensive), surely won't help build Infinity brand reputation in Europe.

..and the rear to me looks like how VW would have designed a Golf if they merged the Scirocco with it. Which again is no bad thing as it makes it look classy and sportier this way. Just make it drive as fun as a VAG group car and that's a Hyundai on top of my car list. Even better if they manage to bring out a performance version to rival the GTi and ST.

The rear does have a VW Golf vibe in terms of the boxier shape and the tailights, the latter of which remind of the Mark 6 (but far better resolved).
