A BMW...made by Kia?

From this view, the 2-Series Active Tourer looks totally like a Kia to me:



This car just seems to have so many Kia styling cues.

Compare the 2-Series Active Tourer with the Kia Carens:

Now that's serious.
Did you at least test drive it before buying it?
I know with most people that goes a long way in knowing if the vehicle is really for them

I did test drive it and it was a really nice car. But after a little while I got bored with the car and it was not fun to drive anymore.

Lack of power and it was a auto. There was little to nothing you could to to it as far as mods go. The inside was cheap so any little touch it would scratch, and the carpet was made out of card board.

I thought I would be happy with a automatic because the two BMW were before the KIA that I had. The lack of power and the rattling of the motor at idle was killing me to. Some people can really make a Kia look good but it just was not for me.

Now with the TSX I picked up I love everything about it.
