    While the spec sheet looks good, something went wrong with the design, it is a very confused car.
    This is actually surprising since Kia has some decent looking cars, some are IMHO better looking than their competitors from Toyota, Honda and other major players in their market segments.

    But this one just didn't decide what it wants to be.
    The sloping hood line look a bit Audi R8-ish, but the bulging front fenders are just over the top (yes, pun intended).
    The Kia grill looks alright but it works better on their regular models, maybe missing a bit more aggression?
    The headlights are way too Caddi-like.
    Sculpting detail of the side looks a bit odd and then you get to the back which in a 1/4 view just looks like it was borrowed from the current Camaro, that is not a good thing. Not in this mix.
    Roof appears to wide too though the echo of the grill at the top of the windshield is an interesting detail.

    It's a nice try, but needs more personality.

    Dear Kia,
    Doesn't matter how it looks. Just produce and release it already. MSRP it for 20k and make the market compete please.
