First the good news. This will get a 201 HP turbo. Now the not as good. The front end is exactly the same as the hatch. Disappointing. Overall it's not a bad package, just a little underwhelming.

I agree, I don't like what they did to the lower grill opening, how the corners now have a obvious radius to them. Looks like a character from Wallace and Gromit!

This is what drives me crazy. . . why does Kia seem to get the better engine options? And wheels? And LED headlight/tailights?

As of now, I generally prefer the interior design of Hyundai's over Kia's and the exterior it depends on the vehicle in regards to which way I lean. But the added features/options I really wish were offered on more Hyundai's too!

I love my GT as it is a great overall package, but bumping up the HP a bit would make it the perfect car.
