    "While the Amanti looked like an assemblage of cues borrowed from earlier luxury cars, the new 2014 Cadenza is representative of the brand's clean, Euro-chic look."

    Ironic, considering that in Europe, KIA sells mostly small, cheap cars, and mostly on the Eastern European market, since the company has not been able to make any significant entries into the Western European market. They are forever known as playing second fiddle to the Japanese, damned as a not-Japanese brand forever.

    The Cadenza looks like a copy of mazda6, which itself is a copy of elements from KIA Optima. None of the three are particularly good looking cars: as soon as mazda departed from the Giugiarro's hallowed design, things went South, and the company has never quite recovered since. How bizarre the whole cyclic copycat effort is!
