My thoughts exactly. It's like a return to the first-generation Cee'd and i30, when they were effectively the same car, sharing the same centre section, and differentiated by the front/rear styling and interior design.

It's a definite step backwards for Kia, but the company as a whole seems to be retreating from the bold, eye-catching design that made the buying public sit up and notice their products in the first place, which seems like a rather odd decision.
