I always thought it was a good idea to differ the same product base to gain a broader consumer spectrum. Hyundai models could lean more towards comfort and Kia models would have a sportier edge. A good example was the previous generation Sonata and Optima. Same car underneath but different executions and characteristics. Though nowadays all cars have to be all things to all people it seems.
