Hyundai is too entrenched in most casual people's minds as an economy car company to easily make the jump to luxury or sport with this marque. Keep the Elantra, Sonata, etc as Hyundai (see Corolla, Camry, etc) and move the Genesis, Equus, etc to some new luxo brand name.
I am impressed with what they have done. I am a Bimmerphile all the way, but you would have to have just arrived from Mars not to take note of Hyundai the past few years.
Perhaps you have been on Mars to long?
