I hate how Kia has sapped all the fun from the top level models. Big engine, coupled with a standard auto. Why? Give us the good engine and a manual trans option.

Yep exactly what I was thinking. All I can think of is, hello, there are still people out there that like to actually drive!

Wheels very simlar to the 2013 GT (US sold version) and the design as some angles have Elantra look. It should be a nice seller if they keep the price right.



Because is based on the Elantra!!!! Same as the Optima/Sonata and Genesis Sedan and Coupe/Future RW Sedan and Coupe!!!

Similar headlights and taillights, same hood lines, roof and trunk and finally the same engine

It's part of the reason we went used. Kia stopped putting the 6-spd manual trans in the SX after 2012. C'mon guys.... stop being silly!

Oh, so this is what you get when you cross a Focus with a Mazda3.
