Well, compare that car to any of them. The car has a much more appealing interior and looks like a Lincoln LS. And that car retails for how much??? Much more then the XG. That car is for the older generation though. It looks challanging to modify with it looking good. I dont like what CD used as its "competion". Cars it would really compete against are Oldsmobile Intrigue, Chrysler Concorde, Not really the Taurus, but more of the Crown Victoria. Taurus is more of competition for the Sonata. Buick Le Sabre, Toyota Avalon. Cars that aren't overly powerful Sedans, but appeal to older people. But I can only imagine myself driving something like that when I'm middle aged. But I think that is what Hyundai had in mind when building it. They didn't have a car to appeal to the older generation. Well, the XG fits that segment well.

I have seen people write to them about that.. the price has alot to do with why they put the XG instead of the Sonata... like when they compared the Escape and the Santa Fe.. the Escape was a 4cly and the Santa Fe was a 6cyl... because of the price of the 2. I know the XG is hyundais higher end car but its priced like a family car
