Sleek, Sporty as it looks like, the design shares with its cousin – the Kia Cee’d. Made for Europe, the car’s build quality is not that much appreciated. Strong lines and curves along with a broad figure, delivers a low sporty styling.

Wiped away headlights and swift lines along the back with huge tail-lamps bring back the beauty of the car. The rear is armored with heavy lines.
