gotta say i like them They were just coming out be4 I left the US and they are a great looking car, and shark racing, etc is stocking some nice mods for them too.

Did we ever think we would see the day when Kia is cooler then Hyundai???or that Kia would be cool at all?? :lol :lol

Don't like it, looks far too much like any other available saloon out there. Not very coupe at all.

Front just reminds me of the new civic too. Definitely not one for me.

kinda look slike 3 cars put together........Civic front end, Astra 2 door sides and Lancer/evo rear lol

Think the Pro Cee'd is better still.

They always seem to lack in choice of engines

i think they are braver with their designs, and while it looks a lot like the US spec honda civic coupe, same kinda 3 box look, i have to say i like it! plus they get a 10yr warrenty!

It does shout 'CIVIC!' at you... but it's not a bad looking car. If Kia stick to their 'cheap cars with tonnes of warranty' approach you could see it selling more than a lot of it's rivals in that market, IF they give a diesel option.
