Nice beautiful car. Super wheels.
Looks like the RAV4 and RX330 from the front.
Interiors are awesome. Concept?! or planned for production?!

Looks nice, but shows that the 2 1/2 box look is here to stay - the current Accent is a proper 3-box design but this one looks like its following the Corollas, Civics, Citis and Indigos in design.

Sigh! For a car that looks like a car!

Looks great. Frankly did not seem to be a Hyundai product at the first glance and yes with the growing traffic, the car sizes seem to be heading south!!

Nice front end. Seems Korean design has matured and found its own space. But then, the front reminds me of the Audi Nuvolari concept, somehow. Maybe it's the use of colours and bright blue Xenons...

Wouldn't mind buying one.

This is just a hot rodded version of the production version that was already launched at the NY auto show.

Very few cars look good in white, this one does.

Perhaps Hyundai is mulling a separate 'sports' line along the lines of Honda's Type R and Toyota's S...put the two together and you have SR, and this one looks the part too.

Talking Nice Very Very Nice

Looks wonderful! Now i just BVR Subbu is listening we want Getz replaced with this or atleast inspire the New Getz with its styling!

However i fail to see this being lauched here, remember India is automotive junk market but with Hyundais main center india you cant say much!

Watch it Japs - Hyundai is close to you in quality, and are getting rid of their quirky designs!

I love the look of this hatch - almost perfect and very proportionate. Even the saloon version of the new Accent is good looking.

BTW I saw the new Hyundai Sonata on the worli seaface yesterday...and being a car guy, I was hard pressed to tell the difference between an Accord and the Sonata from afar.

Not with Hyundai - to be fair they've given us the latest versions of all their products. If it makes economic sense I dont think Hyundai will have an issue with launching it here. Remember they brought Common Rail tech into India when it was considered too hi-fi for daily use sedans.
