In an attempt to understand how the world of automotive design has evolved since the early 2000s, WSJ’s Matt Wood and The Wall St. Journal’s Andrew Brown discuss the new Hyundai models and what they’ve been able to accomplish in a decade.

The two also discuss how Hyundai’s recent success with its new S-Class is a harbinger of things to come for the brand.

In the article, Wood writes: “Hyundai is still the king of the sports car market, with an average of nearly 50 percent of new-car sales for the year ending March 2017 coming from SUVs.

That’s not just the best of the best, it’s the best in the world.

But if you believe Hyundai’s marketing, its SUVs are the best vehicles in the market, too.

If the SUVs were as good as its new flagship model, the S-class, it would be the world’s best-selling car.”
