Okay is this just the new Buick because I'm confused about this car. I think the Equus is actually coming out and for that price tag, but there are a lot of different concepts for it...

No, that top picture is hyundai's pathetic attempt to copy Buick. Note the similar side panels, the same character line, practically the same taillights, the same exhaust tips...

Typical of the Koreans.. You should see what they've been doing to Japanese products since the 60s.

Old pics were broken by I posted the concept sketches instead. So I guess they copied the new Buick design and made it six figures. It better go Mach 1 or something for that price.

It's $100k if you convert staight from wons to dollars. But Hyundai sells all their vehicles cheaper in the states than in South Korea - it'd probably be around $50k here.

For example, the Genesis is 58 million won in south korea which is about $57,000 US dollars - but the Genesis actually starts at $32,000.

Here are some official pics (not renderings) from Autoblog - I think the car looks pretty good, for the market it is targeting.

The day i saw how brutally obvious it was that Hyundai copys the design cues from other companies, was the day i decided never to buy a hyundai.



common. Seriously?


Id sue.

But it was a hella nice car. A coworker of mine almost bought one he said it was the nicest riding car he'd ever been in. And as his first car was an Audi A6 3.2T he bought himself for his birthday, and the fact that his been in ALOT of really nice cars. I'll take his word on it. VW should have just used that car as a higher end Audi, might've done better.

On topic though, Hyundai are the Design Pirates of the auto industry, and now they're just DP'ing Buick. sry i had to.

Agreed it would have done much better as an audi because no one wants to spend that much on a VW, it just doesn't shout luxury.

Hyundai is much worse though, it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth, I think of them as the Elantra, or the Accent. Anyone who would pay that much for a Hyundai is crazy.
