yeah, a hyundai :) if this were facebook obviously i would click the like button but we dont have that here, lol

No one makes anything that i really get excited about and if they do, i find myself not willing to pay the high MSRP's for it due to the fact that i find it either over priced or under contented/ poorly equipped with features.

this hyundai fully loaded looks like its going to bump right up against the $21,500 ceiling which includes a the premium and tech packages. even in base form its a great deal going by its preliminary standard features list... that 7 inch touchscreen is standard on all models. as far as aftermarket goodies go it appears that H&R, HKS, Borla, and a few others either got their hands on pre production models or specifications directly from hyundai to start making parts.

2600 pounds, optional 208HP turbocharged motor (early next year), 6 speed manual or 6 speed DCT, just under 22 grand, 30mpg city/40mpg highway, and a John Krafcik CEO who promises this car will give the VW GTI a run for its money... im liking where all this is going. the worst thing they can do is dumb down the suspension for americans, its already been benchmarked against the current gen VW Scirocco and the 2nd gen Honda CRX ('88-'91).

you know, ray, i dont know.
i was discussing this with jmiller the other night and whats happening is insurance for me is considerable cheaper for anything EXCEPT ford vehicles for some odd reason. ill give you guys the rundown and you can be the judge.

right now my 2008 focus is $220 a month for insurance. yes, its high but keep in mind that my deductables are $0, and my coverages are set really really high and im only 23, so i dont mind it at all. if i set everything to the state minimum it'd be considerably lower but i dont want to be under-insured, a mistake common amongst motorists. i played around with several cars keeping the coverage the same and heres where im at.

2012 Honda Civic Si Sedan = $168/month
2012 Honda Civic Si Coupe = $171/month
2012 Nissan Sentra SE-R = $144/month
2012 Nissan Sentra SE-R SpecV = $149/month
2011 VW GTI 5-Door = $171/month
2012 VW Jetta GLI Sedan = $169/month
2012 Mini Cooper S = $152/month
2012 Mazdaspeed3 = $181/month
2009 Infiniti G35x Sedan = $183/month (i dont do RWD)
2009 Mercedes C300 4Matic = $228/month (again, i dont do RWD)
2011 Subaru WRX = $208/month
2011 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution = $232/month



Now, here are the fords...
2012 Ford Fiesta 5-door = $200/month
2012 Ford Focus 5-door = $235/month
2011 Ford Fusion (Base Model) = $231/month
2011 Ford Fusion Hybrid (Which is less sporty than a base model) = $248/month

as you can see, most of these cars are the high output version of the car on which it is based, offering sportier driving dynamics so even though the price doesnt drop a huge ammount, remember that they are all faster and more powerful than a 2008 focus and a 2012 fiesta. in most cases if i stop being snooty and take a 2-3 year old certified pre-owned version of the same car the price per month drops even lower, like the SE-R's came out at $128/month if i took a 2007 over a 2012!

remember i said if i set my current coverage to state minimums the price would drop? well i set it to the minimums for the cars listed above and they were STILL cheaper to insure than the focus. even cross shopped insurance providers and its the same story, fords are high and all else is low...
i dont know if ford is in my future knowing this information
