    I can't help but cringe everytime I see this car on the road. Kia just borrowed bits and pieces from other cars to form this auto Frankenstein. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I dunno, I think thats about the least offensive of Kia's designs. Probably because they "borrowed" most of the visual cues from better cars.

    [​IMG][​IMG] I hate the Oldsmobile Alero. The taillights are especially offensive. [​IMG] [​IMG] Awkward, ungainly, mostly pointless. Honda Element. But wait... even smaller, but with the same crappy design! Scion XB [​IMG] The Subaru Baja and Chevy Avalance both suck serious balls too, as with any other car that subscribes to the "tacky moulded plastic spackled on the side of the vehicle" look. Ugh

    It looks like a Mercedes and a Lincoln crashed and this is what limped away from the scene of the accident.

    Daimler SP 250 "Dart". Supposedly an exceedingly good sports car, but the looks...[​IMG]

    It looks like a very scowling Austin Bugeye Sprite crossed with the odd Mercedes-Benz Heckflosse on a Triumph chassis.

    years ago, ssangyong (which was partly owned by daimler then) brought out vehicles (a van and the aforementioned musso) they rebadged into mercedes for the 3rd world market. when the local distributor of mercedes benz brought this out in the market, a lot of people were snapping it up because it is a "benz" with a very low price tag. thing is, the vans were really ugly and the quality was so awful - think frequent overheating, poor ride quality, awful interiors... that model almost brought the mercedes brand here to its knees, and the distributorship was eventually awarded to another group.
