Hyundai design team expressed their thoughts on this question by making a truly gorgeous G70. The car’s appearance dons character lines creased into the side of it, along with sharp angles and curves for a quite youthful look. The soundproofing materials add to this active yet sophisticated vibe. There are also gaping oval exhausts and red brake calipers on Hyundai’s newest luxury sedan.
