2014 Kia Forte rear is allllll Focus
 
Is it just me, or is this totally Focus styling that the 2014 Forte is stealing?

Here they are next to each other, is it just me, or do they look super similar?

I do think the Kia Forte does look an awfully lot like the focus, but to an extent it seems the focus has picked up some styling cues from the elantra as well. Either way, alot of cars today are becoming harder to distinguish from one brand to the next.

wow ya those are very similar. little differences but they are pretty much the same thing.

Hyundai and Kia pretty much copy other designs. If you compare there vehicles to cars from other makers they take bits and pieces and put them together.

Kia has been copying design cues from European Ford for years now.

What matters most is which one you want to sit behind the wheel in.

Pretty close, still the kia forte looks great.

I've confused two of the new Rio rears with the Focus.

Its because theyre shared... The only thing diff is exterior and int. design everything else that makes a car run and hold together is shared...
