You like Vivaldi, but your kids prefer the pumping beats of Drake and Jay-Z. You need the navigation system on audio to get you to your destination safely, but your wife just got the baby to sleep in the car seat.

The energetic newlyweds taking off in their Elantra have a completely different set of values than the settled 40+ professionals making their way to work in a Sonata. Which begs the question – why do these two sedans essentially share a look and feel? This very important quandary has been doing the rounds at the Hyundai Motor Co. headquarters for a while, and we’re happy to report that there are some very exciting changes in the pipeline.
