See the Sonata's progression from backwater budget play to the most stylish, advanced mid-size sedan out there.
Launched in 1986, the Hyundai Sonata initially wasn't even really a Hyundai. The sedan sourced major components from other automakers, including Mitsubishi. Since those inauspicious beginnings, Hyundai has been continually refining the Sonata, which now is its longest-running nameplate. Today, the Sonata stands as a formidable mid-size-sedan player itself worthy of imitation. It's gone from not being sold in the U.S.-that took until the Sonata's first redesign in the late 1980s-to being built in a factory in Alabama and eventually seeing American sales top 200,000 annually.

We try to imagine a piece of the lifestyles of the rich and famous by configuring our dream Flying Spur sedans.
Bentley's new Flying Spur has been redesigned from the ground up for the first time since 2005, and it looks absolutely fabulous. Despite having no hope to ever actually own a Flying Spur, some of us on the C/D staff decided to shirk our work responsibilities and come up with our dream Flying Spur specs on Bentley's online configurator. We don't yet know how much the Flying Spur or any of its numerous options will cost, so these specs are even less rooted in reality than they already were.
