Wow! Gotta love the 265 hp V6 in the XG replacement. The appearance of the vehicle also looks different than the TG unveiled at Geneva.

Is the sketch of the new Accent? No way it can look as good as the sketch. Can it?...

I have seen a few different sketches of the Accent, it is definately an improment. I would expect this regain alot of the buyers it was losing to entry level Elantras.

if the car is half as good as that sketch, it will make a big splash in the sub-compact class <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

hello.. im new here... today i went to an all Hyundai meet and there were some Hyundai rep's that showed up in a new NF protoype and i asked him about navi on the us version and he said no because it will drive the priceup...also i told him that when i saw the USDM version of the NF it looked cheap compared to the KDM version... if you notice the KDM version has chrome trim on the front and rear bumpers and the side doors... the USDM doesn't and i told him it looked real cheap when comprared to the Korean version.. it may be a better car but this is a detail this car needs it looks more luxurious with it ... with out it it looks too bland..imo overall i was very impressed with new NF i couldn;'t believe that a handfull of Hyundai owners got a first hand look of the NF<p>then i asked him about the new XG and i told him how i was a bit dissapointed when the XG was first inrtoduced to the US as the XG300... he hinted the new one will be called the Grandeur or Grandeur XG andd that navi willbe an option but could not disclosed which company it was or has been working with to develope the US navi program and head unit...
