Lots of people still think of Hyundai as a small player in the U.S. market, but the facts tell a different story. With a five-car, one-SUV lineup, the Korean manufacturer sold over 400,000 vehicles stateside last year - good enough to rank fourth in import sales, behind Toyota, Honda and Nissan. Now, riding on the strong sales of its Santa Fe, Hyundai is launching a second, slightly smaller SUV, named after another southwestern city. The company recently rolled out its new, compact sport-utility vehicle called Tucson.

With a name that is derived from the phrase "the era of A to Z" and meant to evoke a feeling consistent with Hyundai's new global brand slogan "Drive your way," the automaker unveils the Azera, its new flagship sedan. Classified as a large car by the EPA, the new sedan features graceful lines that are aerodynamically efficient, reducing wind noise while still ensuring a spacious cabin. The dramatic roofline and rear quarter set the Azera apart from other sedans in its class. All together, it is a well-balanced design that pays homage to the other Hyundai models in the lineup while also forging new ground.

When you think about it, the excitement is understandable. Of all the cars in Hyundai's fleet, the Elantra Touring is the first wagon. And since wagon popularity has been on the rise, it's no wonder Hyundai dealers are more than a little giddy. But it might have been easy to miss the Touring since Hyundai also unleashed what many consider to be its most exciting vehicle ever: the Genesis luxury sedan. Yes, it's a headline stealer, but as good as that car might be, the Elantra is more practical, better on gas, less money and will sell, by comparison, like hotcakes.
