    What market niche are they shooting for? Well-off cheapskates that don't mind ridicule, or those seeking the status of a luxury car without any of the status?

    the under $30k is for the V6 model

    yeah youre right maybe they should have rebadged it under a different brand name and charged $15k more for it like Honda, Toyota, and Nissan do

    Your second link doesn't mention anything about a V6 model. Serves me right for not clicking on both of em. That's why i got confused, sorry.

    If we were talking about a sport coupe it would be different. This is a "luxury sedan" it's ALL about brand names and being a snob. Which is the reason I have zero interest in a luxury car.

    Is it being a brand whore?

    I like hondas because of the way they are built. They are simple, There is much attention to detail, and they are built to last a long time.

    Currently, I would not purchase a ford, chevy, dodge, kia, hyundai, saturn, pontiac, blah blah blah. This isnt a brand thing, its a quality thing. Dodge is starting to catch on.

    Why are honda's and toyotas worth more? Have higher retail and resale value than the others? Hint: It has nothing to do with the badge.

    As much shit as I would catch - I'd rock the V8 version. Even if it is closer to 35k - it will probably be built better than any American lump, and will likely be more reliable or cheaper to service than a 5-series or E-class. Any idea if they intend to sell a manual V8 version? If they do, I'm sold.

    Heh, I never thought I'd see the day when Hyundai makes a better 4-door V8 sedan than GM does.

    Something tells me that the Hyundai will have better build quality than a CTS. Sorry, as much as I love the CTS-V, I can't stand the interiors and cheesy styling.
