I actually quite like the new front end of Hyundai here, and the rear end is also attractive, with the middle section at least not being unattractive, But, it seems that the 3 designs somehow don't go together too well; It looks very obviously like a facelift where a new design language has been forced over a model of a different styling era....

This is very different and I like it. The lights could be a tiny bit larger but I do like the concept like feel here.

I do wonder, is the main design theme for hyundai the new grill design because the headlight design has not been consistent lately. Unless the SUVs are the ones with the thin lights on top and the rest of the lineup with the normal headlights.

That's my understanding - I think the crossovers are getting the split headlight treatment but sedans are not.

I agree I think the headlights should be larger.

With that said, I tend to think whenever Hyundai does a facelift, they make it worse.

Clean sheet design is fine, but they seem to shoe horn designs that don't match up with existing sheetmetal.

I know they are totally different cars for very different markets, but the first thing that came to my mind when i saw this was: DS3 CrossSport done right. There is something about that front that reminds me of it.

I like the presence and perceived quality of big sedans for North America.

It doesn't work for me. The two different design languages going on here is a mess. It should of been a completely new car. The interior is the only highlight.

Actually, this car isn't sold in the US, Mexico, or Canada anymore.
