I don't like it. I think the main problem is putting such sharp and straight detailing on what was overall a rounded design.

This is a massive leap in the right direction.

The current Elantra is probably the best looking sedan for sale. It looks so Jason Bourne. The facelift is too extreme for the discrete design of the Elantra.

You're not paying attention to the segment then. You need look no further than the Civic, the new Corolla hatch (and forthcoming sedan), the Cruze refresh, the new Forte, etc. etc. "Discrete design" might be ok for a midsize family sedan like the Sonata (although Hyundai decided it wasn't and gave it a major facelift), but "discrete design" is not welcome in the C-segment.

Edit: discreet design

Auto-correction is one of the worst inventions, together with IP based location suggestions, for those that are polyglots and "multinational" or travelers. Keyboards also by the way, what a terrible thing to touch type on three different computer keyboards.


Anyway, I prefer a generic but good looking design instead of over-designed ugliness that still is not exciting and indistinguishable from others. Car design is now a horror, and Toyota/Lexus are not the worst offenders.

This new Elantra is like a bowl of bland rice (not salted) spiced with habanero chili pepper.
