Except the Genesis sedan didn't outsell the 4GS in January by "50%" either, 1679 for the GS versus 1646 for the Genesis (at 63% take rate for sedan as was the case in 2014). Ideally the Genesis sedan...

Hyundai's reputation isn't anywhere near Toyota's in the 90s, and it doesn't help that as a brand they still can't consistently top quality/dependability surveys. Image is a whole different ball...

Toyota in the early 90s was a darling renowned for quality cars.




That's because they're facing stiff competition now in the domestic Korean market.

I'm not saying they didn't laugh, but Toyota's image then was much much much better than Kia's image even today.

So if they laughed at Toyota, god help Kia.

I was looking forward to a CT based sedan but then again that would just be an HS and we all know how that did in the market.

So this could likely be that CT-based CUV that they were testing a...

Kia is not a respectable luxury brand, it is barely even a respectable mainstream brand. There are people who wouldn't be caught in a $15,000 Kia compact sedan, let alone a $60,000 one.

I highly doubt they copied the XE considering no one knew what the XE even looked like until just recently. The XE itself up front is a bit derivative of the F30 3 series. Any resemblance to the XE...

Thanks for the insight as always. But are you sure about the Genesis having no Shreyer influence? There are a lot of Shreyerisms in the styling and shape.

Maybe not appreciate immediately but if in 5 years you want an LFA, you'll be paying for it. Even moreso in 10-20 years as a collector. Owners can charge whatever they want.

Smart cars are for densely populated urban areas with their ease of parking/maneuverability, anyone using a smart car to commute miles daily on the freeway is doing it wrong.
