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.

The Chery QQ has a more original design than this.

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.
