Can't help noticing the new Q50 body style is similar to the Hyundai Sonata and Ford Fusion. Not saying the car is the same inside or mechanical. But, this morning a Hyundai owner seemed bent on trying to get into a race with me like there was some competition. I left the cruise control on and grinned.:)

Anybody's thoughts on who's copying who?

I have to turn my head often when I spot the rear of a Sonata. It's strikingly similar to the Q50 from a peripheral angle.

We've been having a ton of discussion on this already in the other competition threads. Not much can be said that's already been said on this.
It's almost like Groundhog Day!:eek:

i've had too many sonata and optimas with shiny chrome rims and tinted windows thinking they can beat me light to light.

Lol just got to grin and let them think they can win! But knowing me once that break in period is finito I can foresee some sonatas receiving a proper check back to reality

I would have put it in eco mode all the time to never hit it :)

**** I left the dealer sideways in my 350z, G37, and now Q50. Its become some what of a ritual lol. I've never had a problem with the "Drive it like you stoled it" motto. These cars can take the abuse!

Honestly those new Mazda 6's make me look twice because of the similarity's they have with our Q50's.

Sonata is no slow car. I have one in the driveway as well. Certainly no Q50, but very capable. I will say that the Q50 feels much more sluggish than the sonata during normal driving conditions. When wide open its clearly a bit faster, though.
