Hyundai at the 2013 North American International Auto Show

DETROIT -- Each year, Hyundai seems to be making a more significant impact upon what we expect in the quality and design of our automobiles. This seems to coincide with a larger and more refined presence at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) with each passing year.

HCD-14 Genesis Concept: The HCD-14 Genesis Concept is "the embodiment of Hyundai's design vision," according to their spokesperson at the concept's NAIAS reveal and press conference. They describe it as a sleek and dangerous car, "like a cat with its ears pinned back." It is indeed what Bruce Wayne's 2013 version of the Batmobile (Catmobile?) should be and it would be great to see this beautiful car go into production with very few changes to the overall design.

The Production Line

Besides the threatening feline beauty of the HCD-14 Genesis, Hyundai has a great stable of production cars that can be bought without too much waiting and at prices that are very competitive with similar models from other manufacturers.

Hyundai Sonata: Available also in a hybrid version, the Sonata has been a mainstay of Hyundai's auto lineup. The recipient of much praise, the Sonata won the Driver's Choice Award for Best Family Car in 2012.

Hyundai Genesis: It's no the HCD-14, but the 2013 Genesis is an amazing and refined mid-range car that you can buy today. With advanced safety features, such as a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) and Smart Cruise Control (SCC), the Genesis was named a 2013 IIHS Top Safety Pick.

Hyundai Equus: Topping the Hyundai line is the Equus, desiged to compete head on with the luxury lines of the other automakers. It has premium wood trim, luxurious leather seats with driver's circulation massage, heating, cooling and humidity controls, an 8-inch LCD for the premium navigation, a Driver Information System (DIS), and a 608-watt Lexicon 7.1 Discrete Surround Sound Audio System. Wow!

The Appreciation Station

Again, Hyundai treated certain media representatives to a fabulous party at a well-known and fantastic Detroit BBQ joint. We were fortunate to attend, but haven't let the aromas, taste, and camaraderie of the occasion, or the amazing Bell's Hopslam IPA, bias this article in any way other than using colors that are vaguely like BBQ sauce for some of the text headings!
