No, Kia...you're capable of making an atractive vehicle...this ain't it. Didn't you hire Audi and/or Mazda designers? Ugh...

It's like a Jeep Compass?
Not quite. This is likely the twin to Hyundai's new (and rumored delayed!) sub-compact crossover, the Kona. New Compass is a tweener. Not quite a sub-compact (eg: Renegade) but not quite sized like a compact (eg: Cherokee).

Nice car. Great looking car better than Skoda Fabia. KIA are really rocking right now, each product better and smarter than the last. High ratings in the reliability survey, plus 7 years warranty.

Nice and unoffensive design, stupid name.

There's been a surge in stupid names lately.

For a small crossover, it isn't bad. The front end has kind of a Scion look to it and they phoned in the styling on the back, but it isn't as boring as many of the competitors.

Way too busy. Looks like one of these projects that circle through different design studios and ends up as a mess because of it.

Btw, that recess that goes over both doors: Makes the car look like it already got T-boned:

I don't hate that. They really need to drop any offroad pretensions with the styling of these things though, as if you take it as a box with good visibility and a bit of ground clearance, small crossovers make for very practical city/commuter cars.

Obviously they wanted to name it Sonic, but Chevy took that name. They should've named this Sanic.
