Default 2019 Kia Forte

Not unattractive, but a bit underwhelming. Looks like the next-gen C'eed will be quite similar unlike the current gen.

The front end looks very Ford to me.

Doesn't set any new design benchmarks, but looks nice enough.

Am I the only one who wishes the new Jetta looked half this good? For a econocar, I think it looks great (if a bit visually heavy).

Puts the "new" Jetta to shame. This is handsome and tasteful but not overtly conservative. The rear is nice. I like the proportions a lot. Another nice interior too.

I'm a fan. Is it going to set the "compact" world on fire? No, but it's an impressive update from the outgoing generation, both inside and out, and looks more expensive than it is (granted, I'm sure lower spec versions won't), and holds its own stylistically amongst the competition.

another overly busy design that somehow looks boring and dated. Mazda 3 for the win!

Home run and nicely done. This is what the Jetta should have been. This is stylish without being garish like a Civic.

Also, it looks more "VAG" than the Hyundai Fusion, sorry Ford Elantra, aka. Jetta does.
