Seeing these official pics hasn't altered my opinion that this is a very slickly styled car. I think they did a great job with the surfaces. Every line resolves somewhere on the car, the side crease has the door handles and ends up defining the lines of the taillights. The chrome trim at the base of the windows continues forward to define the hood opening and the top line of the headlights. Not sure I like the creases in the hood that are continued into the grille, but they make sense within the context of the design. And I really like the fact that the lower air intake is more of a sneer than another freakin' smile like so many recently designed cars.

A lot of great detailing on this. Notice how the lower window trim continues to the headlights between the fender and hood.

Sure, it's sharp. But it looks like cars we've already seen. Particularly some of the new designs from Toyota/Lexus. I even see some CC in there.

I said it the last time the then new Sonata came out and I'll say it with this new one. I think Hyundai is doing a better job of designing the Camry than Toyota is.

x2. Hyundai design keeps impressing me and Toyota's recent efforts have really put me off.

It looks ok in those pics, but if you ever drove one, you dont want one. Did I mention 22-24 mpg highway on an '07 sonata with no problems / everything checked, well maintained. (For the V6) I get 32 highway EASILY on my '99 V6 passat.

I've seen shopping carts with more design flair than a Camry, it's really not that great of an accomplishment to say "hyundai has better styling than Toyota" It's like saying, I look better than McLovin from Superbad. That may be true, but it really isn't saying much about yourself. :lol:
