I like it. It looks very much like an even more stylized Lexus IS, especially in the rear and taillights. It has alot of detail I'm not seeing in the new Cobalt replacement such as low-profile tires and turn signals in the mirrors. I also like the sculpted look of the lines in the hood and lower greenhouse area. The Koreans are comeing, America, and Japan better not ignor this!
I was hoping Kia don't make the Koup concept as a reality, since I hated that car for what it really was, was the ripped off Civic, plain and simple, just like Chinese copied BMW, Daewoo, Kia, Mercedes, and others to the grill and everything. This should not make it into production. It's a shameful copy to the Civic as everyone knows. First, Hyundai followed what Chinese did by copying Lexus, BMW, and Merc for their Genesis, now their offspring Kia goes one step further and blatenly ripps off Civic without shame.
