Why would you need a glass roof for visibility? Its more for the aesthetic appeal. Like the Pontiac G6 (?).

'That puts it in the Tiburon league, right?' - In terms of power,yes. The engines are more or less the same.

The design is brilliant! It is a little too transparent IMO.

Looks great anyway!

Striking design, a true hot hatch. Gotta love Hyundais recent designs (except the Verna).

Good design overall, would have like the head lamps a little bigger. Rear looks close to ordinary, the roof is stunning. For a such an elaborate design 170 BHP sounds a little less, would have expected 220+ kinds.

I think its hard to believe Fiat has copied from Hyundai. Bravo model started production started in Jan 2007 and Arnejs in the end of 2007.

Actually the Fiat Bravo was first introduced to the press in January 2007 and first published in the Geneva Motor Show in March 2007 as per wikipedia.

Whereas the Arnejs pics have been seen on the net from late 2006 itself. Here is a September 2006 news report on it
Hyundai Arnejs concept - Auto Shows - Car and Driver September 2006

The Hyundai Arnejs was seen at the September 2006 Paris Auto Show.

I too see references to Bravo in late 2006 Fiat: Get Fiat Bravo in India! :: Insanity Rediscovered. I hope we do not get in to an argument here, since we do not have very reliable sources of information.

Yes what you say is true.

But what i pointed out was that the Fiat Bravo debuted only in March 2007 at the Geneva Motor show. Whereas the Hyundai Arnejs debuted in September 2006 at the Paris Auto show.

Wow that looks great. I wouldn't mind have a nice tight hatch like this. I also hope all these designs cues go all the way into production. Most of the good stuff dies out once it reaches the production line for ease of manufacturing and other reasons.
