I'm sure most have seen it by now, but official shots below:












In general, I'm ok with this (not a huge fan, but not a huge hater of it either). We already had a general sense of what it would look like. Love it or hate it, it's definitely one of the most "concept car" looking front ends on a production car I've seen in a while.



My main nit about the interior, I wish they had made the infotainment screen flush with the surround, without the seam break (like Alfa does with the Giulia and Stelvio, for example). It looks cheap as-is with that seam. I almost would've preferred a tablet-like screen rather than the extra plastic surround they gave us that connects to the gauge cluster.

Front looks Chinese. Will look more dated soon (already does). Overwrought detailing throughout.

Interior is the only bright spot.

With the exception of the face (livable), this is a handsome vehicle. I like it very much.

Why couldn't it just be this. I do NOT understand the grille (or how people are okay with Hyundai continuing to push it). Such an arbitrary shape. More and more flat chrome. They had a handsome face before. Now it's a Lexus wannabe.

Do explain how the blame falls on those who are allegedly “okay” with Hyundai’s grille approach. Because we don’t hate it that means it’s on us? If Acura/Honda/Lexus/Audi have taught us anything, it’s that some brands are going to do what they want. That’s what Hyundai is doing.

What would you have us do? Protest? Block their assembly lines with a human chain?

Haha no

I'm more pointing out the lack of complaints. i.e. - you're all paid Hyundai shills
