Facepalm.... Kia
 
Was reading around last night and stumbled upon this article about the 2014 Kia forte which looks scary similar to the focus sedan am I wrong ?

Here it is http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...t-drive-review

It definitely has some similarities...I see Kia's on the road all the time and those taillights trick me into thinking it's a Focus

From the side and the back they look very similar I just wonder who copied who

Lots of cars on the road these days share several similarities for several reasons. Here's a good start.

I am test driving a sedan this weekend, it looks like a nice car...for a Kia. It's also 1st year 2nd gen though so I am a little skeptical.

Wow the tail-lights are very similar in the sedans.

Why not Kia? Because Korean. Eff that. I don't care it if has a crazy good warranty, and is cheaper... it's KO-RE-AN. No bueno.

I think that rear valance on the 5 door would look nice on my sedan lol
But yea a lot of cars have similarities I just think from the side and back there way too close

Idiot.

The name of the company that sells these vehicles might be Korean, but the design and production are mostly handled in America.

Kia/Hyundai builds a good product and anyone who dismisses them based on where the CEO lives is a tard.
