Looks like a Mazda3 with a bad back end, Volvo taillights, and a weird window.

Recipe for a Hyundai

Posted Image

Take one part Mercedes A-Class

Foglights from a new Lexus IS

Side profile from a Nissan Murano

Taillights from a Volvo

Take random 90's headlights for inspiration.

..what, that's not original enough? Let's just give it a really wierd name...

The Chery QQ has a more original design than this.

Not bad but the rear 3/4 looks a little weird with the windows.

It looks good, but it just looks like a big rip off of everything. <_<

It's not to my tastes, but man, it's nice to see something different for this category of vanilla cars.

Regarding the name Cee'd.

Apparently Kia wanted something that people would remember and talk about. It's a loose representation of: European Community/European Design.

And another symbolic intent was for this car to be the 'seed' of continued growth.

So there you have it.

To me, it looks original enough, with a few parts here and there that they burrowed, like most companys do these days. Burrowing better designs and intergrates to it. To me, it looks like a Kia version of Hyundai's I30. I am not a fan of neither since I don't like small cars, but it doesn't look too bad. It's only for Korea and Europe right? Too bad we won't see it in the Stateside anytime soon.
