Hyundai/KIA is obviously playing it safe with the cars that have been in the market for some generations, while being more daunting with their new launched small SVs cars, Stinger, etc. It makes sense, i guess.

There's no sense of dynamism, nothing to make you look twice, and it genuinely does seem older than the car it's supposed to be replacing, a problem shared by its Hyundai i30 sibling. The detailing might be ever so slightly tidier and more modern, but the overall design lacks the "poke you in the eyeballs" impact of the outgoing car.

Maybe Clarkson, Hammond, and May need to do a spoof on the C-apostrophe-d similar to their outrageously funny segment on Peugeot drivers.

Play safe is politely said, this looks a generation loder than the car it replaces, kind of like the missing link between generation 1 and the dynmaic generation 2.

Them, and fleets. Those seeking style will buy a Sportage of Stonic likely anyway, but given how attractive the current car still looks in and outside, this si still disappointing,.
