Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 5Door

The first ever five door Wrangler is based on the redesigned 2007 3door version of Jeep’s iconic model, featuring a longer wheelbase that improves passenger and cargo space. Like the 3door version, the Wrangler Unlimited will be offered with Jeep’s new 3.8-liter overhead valve V-6 engine that produces 205 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque. Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will come with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an available four-speed automatic transmission. As for the styling, the 5door Wrangler could easily be mistaken for a Hummer’s H3 smaller brother...

Hyundai FD Concept -2007 Elantra & C Segment Hatch
Hyundai gives us a teaser of its upcoming 2007 midsize hatch, that will compete in the Ford Focus & VW Golf category. The sedan version will replace the current Elantra model

Designed by Hyundai’s new site in Russelsheim, Germany, the FD concept is the product of a young team of European engineers who have been given a great deal of freedom by Korean headquarters. The concept will be previewed in the Paris Auto Show in September, with production versions following in early 2007.

The FD is going to be bigger than the Accent -which will continue to be offered as an in-between category model, giving Hyundai a competitor in the C-segment, taking on Ford Focus, Opel Astra and Volkswagen Golf models.

It is already confirmed by Hyundai that the FD will would share the same platform as Kia’s new model, dubbed the ED. This ED, is actually the production version of the C'eed concept seen at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and will replace the current Cerato. But whereas the Kia was largely the work of a Korean team, then 'Europeanised' at Russelsheim, the design of the Hyundai has been created from scratch alongside the engineering development.

Although the ED and FD will share similar mechanical and structural designs, with only minor variations in, for example, suspension tuning, they will have a different image and market positioning. Underlining this, they will be built at two different factories - the Kia ED in Zilina, Slovakia, and the FD at Hyundai’s new factory at the Czech Republic. Engines will be similar to those already in the Hyundai-Kia range, including 1.4, 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0-litre petrol engines and 1.5 and 2.0 turbo diesels.

The new model will be available in hatchback (3 & 5 door) and sedan versions, with the later replacing the current Elantra (see pics). According to European sources, the FD will also base Hyundai’s future midsize coupe-cabriolet and MPV models.

I respect their management technique - ie fighting all emerging problems, but despise their products and the way they are not scrutinized by the market.

Camry seems to be a different sort of product, but I will wait for the new Corolla to re-evaluate my opinion...

I think Yota is just riding on thier past halo, despite currently having no products to support that image.

Finally, my comment with "Hyu beating Yota at their game" refers to Yotas biggest success.. copying competing products, and then adding something extra to win.. that is how they started and it worked wonders... now Hyundai is doing the same thing... Sonata was directly aimed at Camry and it wasa good attempt (for a first attempt). the Elantra might be even better, and give the competition a run for their money.

Wow, and I thought Ford was getting worse styling. Both of those are horrid. Except maybe the interior of the Hyundai.
