the back of the coupe looks pretty cool,
the rest of the car looks way too much like a civic...

but I've always made fun of KIA's regardless because of their name.

Killed In Action

However, these 2 are not bad. I guess there are improvements since I last worked with KIAs.

Lol, the front is like a Civic's fraternal twin... just different enough to avoid copyright infringement.

Crappy built-quaility, but great designs...

They still have to fight againist the DEEP depreciation issue. Some of the Korean cars depreciate at 60% a year...

It seems that Kia is developing their product and image much like Honda and other Japanese manufacturers did in the 80's. Previously thought of as junk only to eventually become a benchmark.
