    I think you're giving Hyundai more credit than it deserves, really. Yes, the 2010 Sonata made a big splash, but not many cars in the segment followed suit. The Accord is still typical Honda-handsome-conservative. The Camry (prior to recent hideous update) was very restrained. The Altima is a clear evolution of its design. The Malibu is a 4-door Camaro. The new 200 is almost a rehash of a Taurus. Speaking of Taurus, I think the 2010 Hyundai was much like the 1986 Taurus in that it made a huge splash for its unique design for the segment, and essential thievery of a German design, the Audi 5000.

    The 2011 Sonata design is "inspired" by the Passat CC and Mercedes CLS. I was surprised in 2010 seeing the Sonata, because I really liked the CLS, and how much they copied the same "4 door coupe" design.
