I think it sneaks over the line and is cool, only just, but cool because of its Top Gear reasonably priced car connections.

I voted cool, but only because it's one of the first truly world-class Korean cars.

According to my good friends in the motoring press, it can hold its head up amongst the Focus/Golf/Astra/Megane bunch.

Which for a Korean car, is flippin' good going!

Just a Kia, i feel that the hype will blow over eventually.

Uncool.

Salute, Giordano.

By all accounts it's a pretty decent car and I think it's quite good looking in 3 door form but I'd say it was worthy rather than cool. I don't think that's an issue because I doubt that the people buying it are doing so because it's cool. It's a car you buy with your head rather than your heart.

That's about right. If it was the "decent car, especially at that money" wall it would be right up there. But it isn't.

It's a piece of under engineered junk built by dog eating commies

Sorry, did I say that aloud?

I think Kia are coming up the food chain with some of their cars, in looks as well as reliability (such as their 4x4), but this doesn't look good (average at best), and the brand name still needs a lot of work before it can be classed as cool, therefore uncool.

Undecided between uncool and cool on this one.....

However, i know of about 80 Kias that have been sold to local taxi drivers, the local dealers have stood by the 100000 miles/5 years warranty, something a lot of manufacturers do not do......

Very underestimated and well priced, give it another 5 years with the continued growth of their reliability and stories of good dealer customer service they will really do well

Very easy for people to take a cheep shot at Kia. However, look at the amount of new metal Hyundai/Kia have released over the past couple of years. This year at Geneva alone this huge firm released the Picanto, Rio, Velostar, i40 on top of a host of other newish models. I like the ix35 very much.

If only Alfa /Fiat had that amount of clout! I would rather see them own Alfa than VW!!!!

Car as domestic appliance.

Built cheap as reliable transport, but does little else.

Seriously uncool, but slightly cooler than a Vauxhall, as it will be just as boring but more reliable.

KIA are doing a good job of raising their standing and turning out cars you wouldn't object to being seen in (as a passenger of course )

uncool though, but not necessarily "bad" as such.

It's a KIA - so by default it is un-cool

The thinking man's focus. I reckon the time is right for a wrc car and a 4 wheel drive 2 litre turbo road version.
