Very nice. Looks like a mini-Optima. Kia has some nice cars now, except the copy/paste K9 though.
Great looking little car, way more interesting than any car in it segment right now.
It looks so like a Ford Focus Saloon from the back
Another shameful korean design rip-off.
It does looks nice, but I think the actual Forte looks much better and less generic.
To me it looks like a smaller version of their own Cadenza. Didn't the Cadenza come before the Focus?
(IMO, the Cadenza is the best looking Kia ever)
Don't know and don't really care to be honest
You don't care, but you say that it's a Korean ripoff, although you are not sure that the "ripoff" was of their own car, or the Focus? Great comment then.
By the way Tumbo, I almost agree with the Cadenza being the nicest Kia ever. I just like the front of the Cerato more than the Cadenza or Optima.
Still Kia has to work a lot on their interior's material, as they're quite shameful. (You, having familiarity with Audi and Kia will understand better than anyone)
I think the headlights that attach to the grille were inspired by the new 3er.
Oh yeah, the interior is quite shameful, but it isnt worse then Toyota/Hyandai interiors. They keep the same level. And Audi, you can not really compare with, cause they are interior leaders. But Kia is going in the right direction. I like many of their cars, except the copycat-K9.
I meant as in the fact that I have no interest in Korean cars whatsoever. + I'm quite sure the Focus was released first focus was released first, and I think the Focus/Forte bear far more resemblance than the Focus/cadenza the have almost exactly the same rear lights and boot lid
That car is gonna sell sooo well..
Do you guys ever realise that the exterior design of the car is set more than 2 years before it hits the market?
Cadenza taillight are A4 B7 inspired. Not a bad thing though.
I think 3 Series F30 with headlights attached to grill was Honda Civic (2006) inspired.
I think the whole Cadenza is Audi inspired. When you see it from far, you really think it's an Audi. It's beautiful though.
Beautiful isn't the word I'd use.
I hope you didn't think I was serious?
Just saw a 2014 Forte/Cerato in person... it looks a million times better than in pictures. Really a hot car. The last Cerato was very nice as well.
