    Kinda Lancer/Civic/G6 to me, but it's still nice on the eyes.

    yeah the front end makes me think Civic.

    It actually doesn't look that bad for a Kia though

    I'm not seeing much shared with the Focus myself, share the paint colour.

    Paint color isn't really similar, unless you mean "they are both blue."

    I was referring to the shape of the vehicle, particularly aft of the a pillar.

    Couple more pics of the overseas version, which pretty much looks identical.

    It almost has an Alfa look to the greenhouse, and the taillight treatment is very Lexus (with tinges of Sonata).

    That is a great looking car. Is Hyundai getting a version, with presumably more features?

    What's so great about it? It's another boring econo sedan.

    Styling, features and price. I wouldn't call it boring, at least not what comes on the SX trim level.

    I doubt it... Unless the Elantra evolves into it. But I haven't read signs of any major changes with the Elantra coming any time soon. If anything I'd guess they would gradually replace it with i20 based cars, as that's what the Elantra wagon that's coming is.

    I wish there was one coming... I find the new Elantra is a styling dud - it's the lame duck of the line-up at the moment (I never warmed up to it since it debutted).
