I'm sorry but this pic drives one thing home... the back end of this is way too tall, way too boxy/bulky looking. Doh.gif They should have brought the hatch over instead. Oh well. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice vehicle, just not my taste.

It's not super sexy but the utility factor helps deter the looks. Like Bob said "Fraggle rock" or something like that.... I think he's been drinking.

Seriously... excuse me while I throw up.

Hyundai definitely missed the cue this time. Oh well - at least I know which Elantra I won't be looking at.

It's a bit tall. A bit sport-ute-ish in the appearance. I much prefer the look of the J2 wagon. Also, those massive rear pillars scream "accident waiting to happen". You could likely hide an XD in that blind spot!

Haha, it is pretty ugly. However, Hyundai did get the Genesis Coupe design right. Maybe the touring design was pieced together during a series of Friday afternoon intern meetings.
