Now that I look again it's not as close as I thought but my eyes still want to make me see it.

Man, I really do like the Stinger. Every time I see one I do a double take. If this was badged as a higher end luxury manufacturer with maybe glossier pant, it would sell like no other.

Yeah I see several in my area. There is a brighter blue one that looks good. I would be all over a used/CPO one, I suspect the depreciation on these things is pretty high.

Hyundai's new Sonata could get all-wheel drive
Hyundai is "currently reviewing" the need for an all-wheel-drive Sonata in the US.

The 2020 Hyundai Sonata will arrive in US showrooms later this year, with bold styling and lots of new driver-assistance technologies. The rakish sedan rides on a brand-new platform, and Hyundai says the Sonata could eventually be offered with all-wheel drive because of that -- a first for the model.

When specifically asked about the possibility of an all-wheel-drive Sonata during a press briefing in Seoul, South Korea on Wednesday, Jae Young Kim, the director of Hyundai's product division, said, "Yes ... we are currently reviewing the need for all-wheel drive in [the US] market."

The 2020 Sonata's platform -- called N3 internally -- will go on to underpin a number of other vehicles, including crossovers and SUVs. Because of that, the N3 chassis has been designed to support all-wheel drive from the get-go.

Putting Subaru on notice with the new Legacy I think....

Genesis G70. Same car, better badge (well, with a trunk, and slightly shorter, ...)

Donít really care what badge is on the car and think the stinger looks better.

Hyundai could make a turbo AWD Sonata variant part of their "N" line.

Next-gen Hyundai Sonata gets more tech, slight price bump


ANN ARBOR, Mich. ó The redesigned 2020 Hyundai Sonata midsize sedan, which features new standard safety technology, a new engine option, a new optional smartphone key and remote parking assist, will start at $24,330, including shipping, when it starts reaching showrooms this month.

The base SE, $750 more than the 2019 model, gets several upgrades as standard equipment:

New Smartstream 2.5-liter engine with 191 hp, compared with 185 hp in the '19 Sonata

Eight-speed transmission, vs. the '19's six-speed

32 mpg vs. 29 mpg in the 2019

8-inch LCD monitor, larger by 1 inch

SmartSense safety features including forward collision avoidance, lane keeping, driver attention warning and smart cruise control.

The midlevel SEL trim starts at $26,430, including shipping. A $1,200 convenience package adds Hyundai's digital key, a 12.3-inch LCD instrument cluster, wireless device charging and more.

The SEL Plus swaps in a 1.6-liter turbo engine and adds paddle shifters.

The $34,230 top-of-the-line Limited has the 1.6-liter engine and comes with the digital key, a color head-up display, blind-spot collision warning and remote smart parking assist, which allows the driver to move the car into or out of a parking space.

The Alabama-built Sonata, with its elegant design, generated positive buzz at this year's New York auto show. Dealers will see whether that buzz translates into sales. Through the first 10 months of the year, volume dropped 16 percent to 77,430 deliveries.

I like where Hyundai is taking their designs. But, no AWD...

Grab a G70 AWD

I'm wishing my Cadenza was AWD, so I may move to a Stinger AWD in the future. It's a bit smaller, and doesn't have panoramic sunroof like the Cadenza, but it's sportier.

Kia has put the 3.3TT and AWD in the new K900, so maybe they'll put it in more models in the future.

Time will tell, but I'm finding Kia is just like Subaru: the features you want, in the model you want, are a few years in the future, every time.

Yeah. I think Genesis/Hyundai learned from the others. AWD will be in upscale models, just like Toyota/Honda/Nissan.

I don't fit in the Stinger. Sunroof comes down too much and my head rubs. The Genesis fits like a glove.

One of the things I don't like about the G70, and the wife too, is the B pillar is by your shoulder, so your shoulder isn't by the door/window. I know they're doing this for occupant safety... but stil.

Rumor mill says there's going to be a 3.5TT soon... And maybe a coupe. https://thekoreancarblog.com/2019/04...-coupe-render/ If they bring the coupe, I'm very much in.

3.5TT sounds awesome! It probably means a 3.5 non-turbo as well. That would be a nice little bump from the current 3.3. It might push it over 300 hp with better torque.

So if that new model is the G70 coupe, it may get named G60. Or maybe there's a new G70 coupe plus an unknown G60 (and then a bunch of potential GT models to go with them)
