Looks boxier than current gen. Today's model is really good so i don't see much field of improvement.

Looks OK. It has a tough act to follow (the current generation is one of my favourite small car designs).

like the Sonata and Elantra, it looks indeed older and less fashionable than teh previous models. But, to be honest, this seems a current trend among many automakers, German esp., but the fiesta spyshots indicate a boxier and less dynamic appearance as well, so Ford seems to jump the train as well.

Taht said, I believe that the real improvements will be under the skin, where the current i30 is a bit dull to drive and the engines are not that top notch in comparison to the segment. Whilst the engines will be carry over (and the new 3cylinder is actually quite okay, after having had it recently in a rental), but an all new chassis sounds good...

Very boxy, reminds me of the Kia Niro.

Or, actually, the whole DLO solution looks like the 2005 Kia Spectra 5.

But,I guess this new model looks older is a new trend among many. unfortunately for every design lover....

Hyundai is taking out some of the cartoonishness (sic) of the previous generation vehicles and replacing it with a more mature look. It's like they are becoming VW (i.e. mature if a bit dull), but with better quality and reliability.

Agreed. Originally the 'new' Sonata was pretty boring to me - but it's grown on me somewhat. I do prefer the new Elantra to the old one though; and I'm starting to see a pile of them on the road (as well as Civics and new Cruises) - this to me says that Corolla is getting it's collective lawn cut.

Although teh Corolla and it's in Europe way more popular hatchback version, the Auris or iM in the US, are not bad cars, and surely very reliable, they are just very average in every way, and below average in some others, among those crucial ones like showroom appeal.

Here a Kia cee'd or Hyundai i30 beat it hands down in terms of design and interior build quality & materials (and they don't come at VW premium prices), a Ford Focus or Mazda 3 are more fun to drive and have more modern and "better in every way" engines, and so on. AT least in Europe the vast majority of Auris' seem to be the hybrid model, which have no real competitor in it#s segment and are prized very competitively. And, to be honest, I wouldn't know why i would chose a non hybrid over any competitor, as others build pretty much bullet proof cars as well nowadays...
