 CarSPIN - Auto Commentary:  Movin' On Up - The 2006 Hyundai Sonata
The cars were of course improvements over the Excel, but greatly lacking in terms of performance, comfort, and reliability.
The car was no class-leader, but Consumer Reports called it “rough around the edges,” a definite advantage over its predecessor, which could be described no more kindly than “rough from edge to edge” (a description far kinder than CR’s “woeful”).
Attempts to introduce premium cars were not hugely successful, bringing out the good-but-not-great Hyundai XG in 2001 and the higher-end but questionably styled Amanti through the Kia brand that it had acquired for reasons that have yet to pan out; though different brand identities are possible, its products have not reflected any such decision.

 1998 Dodge Intrepid Named One of Car and Driver's 'Ten Best'
The competition, which is open to cars, pickup trucks, minivans and sport utility vehicles, is designed to identify a wide range of vehicles that have the greatest appeal to the public.
In the magazine's review of Intrepid, Car and Driver's Editor-in-Chief Csaba Csere wrote, "When Intrepid ESX materialized as a concept car at the 1996 Detroit auto show, we certainly didn't expect that anything remotely resembling such a radical design would make it into production.
Coupled with sharp steering and responsive handling, the Intrepid is the large family sedan of choice for the enthusiast driver." "Out of 56 nominees, we are thrilled that Car and Driver has selected the Dodge Intrepid as one of its Ten Best," said Ray Fisher, General Manager of the Dodge Division.
