ANY movie that features the extraordinary acting skills of Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Cann, Robert Duvall and Diane Keaton must be a winner.
And that's exactly what happened when The Godfather came out in 1972.
It scooped Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay, and will go down as an all-time classic in the movie world.
Which probably goes some way to explaining why the director then went on to make a trilogy, with the sequels being The Godfather Part II and The Godfather Part III.
The sequels didn't pick up the accolades that the original did and that's one of the problems of producing more versions.
But thankfully it's not a problem faced by Hyundai when recently launching their final vehicle in the "i" range trilogy ... the i30.
The i10 picked up numerous awards when it was launched globally in 2007, including Car of the Year in India and Malaysia.
Closer to home the super little i20 was a finalist in the SA Car of the Year 2009.
And with the i30 don't bet against Hyundai once again having a finalist when the list is announced later this year.
There are two versions of the i30 locally - a 1.6litre (R189900) and a 2.0litre (R229900). Both are in petrol version only.
On test this week we had the 2.0litre, and when it comes to looks, the hatch really impresses - both with the interior and exterior.
The low-slung design suits it perfectly and the overhangs on both the front and rear wheels give it a distinctive, sporty look.
Our test car came with "pimp-my-ride" mags, bee-sting aerial and attractive colour-coded door handles and bumpers.
Inside it comes with climate control, six airbags and cruise control.
Drive-wise it handles well.
Cornering feels tight and acceleration is good with a 0-100kmh figure of 10.1 seconds and a top speed of 186kmh.
Fuel consumption is a thrifty 7litres per 100km.
The only downside is Hyundai's option to go with a five-speed gearbox rather than a six-speed.
Whether it turns into a classic, like The Godfather, only time will tell!
