A lot of Hyundai and Kia cars look great on paper but they always seem to fall short in the magazine reviews. Not just mpg but also peak hp/torque and rpms at which they are reached. The turbo models of veloster, optima, and genesis come to mind. Class leaders on paper but dont measure up in real life. Always suspected they were gaming the system. BMW seems to do the opposite, their vehicles always seem underrated by the factory and end up getting highly reviewed by the mags.
