Kia actually has history starting with building a Ford model under license for their home market. The Kia badge is shaped like the Ford oval for this reason.

As for them looking similar...notice the cut lines and lower reflectors on the Kia. They all flow and converge very very similar to the Focus. Even where the trunk pop is (suggested to be from the image at least) To me...it's more than the look of the tail lights...it is all those elements together that suggest inspiration from our Ford.

It's all good. Good designs live on in other good designs. Look at the new Fusion. I see Aston Martin influence on the front end. Love it.

ya that new fusion looks very very nice, much more attractive stance than other new cars, and much better than 'smiling pokemon' front of Focus, seriously... if I were to change my SVT for newer car, following the looks it wold be the Fusion, with no competition to it at all.

The new focii stand out pretty well, not sure I'm a huge fan of those tail lights though. It looks like they're leaking towards the front end of the car. IMHO.

Smiling pokemon!? I always thought the grill looked like Darth Vader. Never would I compare this car to looking like a Pokemon.

Nothing wrong with a strong family resemblance. It's worked well for most of the premium brands.

If only. They look 10x better in my opinion and if you've seen the pictures of them lit up, they're LEDs and look badass.

I've got some buddies that say their Japanese motorcycles look like Harley, and they're cheaper. I tell them, "Yeah, and a transvestite looks like a woman, but I'm not riding one of those either."

What is your point?

Are you saying that Japanese motorcycles don't perform well or the quality is poor or...?

I never implied any of that. Just stated I don't want a Japanese motorcycle.
I'm just a believer in the adage "Be American, Buy American". Which I do as often as I can. If all Americans did this, I believe our economy would be a lot better than it is.
