Eh I can only see a similarity between the Altima and the genesis form the back.. The front is different. Looks more aggressive than the Altima IMO.

i'm not gonna lie, i'm just bias because i like nissan... but i think the over all shape of the car looks similar to the altima. it has a big engine bay which is similar the the altima/350z but as far as the headlights and front bumper i would hope hyundai would come up with something of their own

Well they used to be unreliable but they're quality nowadays is on par with any major japanese car manufacturer. Taken from JD power and assoc.

Hyundai exec talks engine sharing with Mercedes-Benz

^sayiing Hyundai doesn't want to partner up with MB because they don't want to share the technology.

Toyota exec calls Hyundai "strong enemy"
http://www.autoblog.com/2007/11/21/toyota-exec-calls-hyundai-strong-enemy/

It's a bold statement when the #1 Car manufacturer calls you a "Strong Enemy".

The numbers speaks for itself. Qualitys rapidly increased, they're ranked 5th largest automaker, declines partnership with one of the most luxurious automakers, and #1 calls you "Strong Enemy". Theres no denying hyundai is a force to be reckoned with. IMO, i'd say in about 10 -15 years, they'll be up in the top 2 or even #1.

Its a Hyundai. It probably wont look anything like that. And hyundais aren't reliable cars. Of course, after mitsu.

i kinda think the Z31, Z32, S13, S14, still look good... the Z series ran from 1983-1996 and the S series went from 1989-1998

but thats lexus/toyota... i just think the genesis and the altima look similar not the same... not two cars should look the same otherwise there's not point in having different manufactures and models

notice some of those listed are the "classic" RWD ones? I agree that the 240Z, 180/240SX/Silvia, and last-gen 300Z still look good. the rest? 260/280Z, mid-80's 300Z, NX, FWD 200SX, Sentra SE-R/Spec V and other Nissan mid-to-late 90's ~ present vehicles. I don't think so.
