2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid
This tree hugger has a 2.4L 4 cyl which pumps 206 HP through a 6 speed auto.
Truthfully, Hyundai designers weren't in the right state of mind when designing the frontend to this car. And the ugly wheels follow through as well. From that chrome eyebrow up front to that ugly chrome piece that runs from atop the fenders all the way to the rear glass. Like the Chromatic days in the 50's where everyone was gaga & placed chrome just everywhere.
Interior is a slight step up from the standard Sonata. I did like the bright & colorful LCD in the Instrument cluster & even the Korny sound effects when you start up the car lol...
Still prefer the Sonata turbo over this & even more so the Optima. Despite that preference, I feel Hyundai/Kia still need more time to really display what their products are made of. It's a trust that takes many years to earn. This car just hit mass & just about every journalist out there have stressed how the drivetrain still needs lots of refinement. We also need to see how this Hybrid version will last in the long run.
2011 Kia GT Concept (2011 Frankfurt Auto Show)
Powerful, dynamic and forward-looking, Kia GT concept car signals the company's distinctive new design direction. This four-door sports sedan with a rear-wheel drive layout - a Kia first - marries sleek and muscular proportions with a sophisticated and elegant four-seater cockpit.
Although work on the Kia GT concept first started in November 2010, the idea of a powerful rear-wheel drive Kia saloon had been percolating in the minds of Kia's European designers for some time. "This concept allows us to explore exciting new design directions, as using a rear-drive layout creates very different proportions compared to a front-wheel drive car," says Peter Schreyer, Kia's Chief Design Officer. "The classic front-engined, rear-wheel drive layout of a performance saloon has distinct appeal not just for the domestic Korean audience, but also for the European and American markets."
"At the onset of this project," adds Gregory Guillaume, Kia's European Design Chief, "the design team was inspired by the spirit of iconic 1970s GT cars: sumptuous and elegant vehicles capable of whisking passengers from Paris to the South of France in effortless style and at high speed. We wanted to create something similarly graceful, athletic and confident, but not aggressive or overbearing."
This focus of dynamism and pace is sharpened by the car's aeronautical theme, headlined by the multi-piece propeller-style alloy and carbon-fibre wheels, the jet-themed rear-view cameras, the low-slung front air intake, the aerodynamically efficient rear diffuser and the winglets that curve in from the front flanks and flow into the headlamps.

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid vs Chevy Cruze Eco Challenge Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What's the most fun hybrid or eco car to drive? It certainly isn't the Toyota Prius, but it could very well be the 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid or the 2011 Chevy Cruze Eco with the manual transmission. Both cars get 40 or more MPG on the highway and both cars are fun to drive...at least as fun as high mileage cars can be. So which one is the better car. Check out this first drive review.
2011 Hyundai Equus Signature Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour/Review
Brought over from across seas the Equus is supposed to compete with larger luxury sedans of 50+ dollars. With a 10 year 100,000 miles and some of the best value for money you can buy, the Equus is a great contender for the market of a quality luxury sedan. The only way to truly appreciate the efforts and quality of craftsmanship put into this flagship is to check it out in person and I strongly recommend it. For people that love value for money, the Equus just about the only choice. They are just now arriving into showrooms. In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Hyundai Equus Signature. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
