For me the current Elantra looks much better. The new one looks like it's mix of many cars...Carolla, Optra...

I liked the looks. 138bhp 2lit. And they state that its spacier than Corolla and teh Civic! I love the dash and stereo with thise blue light. And the steering with those buttons.

This is not fair. Whenever Hyundai brings in a new model, people find it similar to some/many other cars
Anyway, car looks great..

Can't Hyundai come out with something original looking? Jeez...

I do like the new Elantra's looks. But c'mon, how about something original, eh Hyundai?

I think they copied this design from Honda Civic. Head lights and body style looks like Civic.

Looks like they were inspired by the interior blue lighting from Volkswagen!

Though the car looks a lot like the Corolla, the back of which looks a lot like the Jetta or vice versa, depending on how you look at it, I like the looks of this car. Much better then the current Elantra and finally Hyundai grilles are getting better and smarter looking.

This one has similar styling problems to the old one.

The car looks nice except for the front, which is pretty crappy to be honest.

Just look at it from another prespective. What if it was priced at the present Elantra's price here in India. What will you guys say then? What will you buy then.
