Saw the same video and was wowed away. I can not believe its a kia definitely growing strong and being a viable competitor this car looks like it should be in the luxury segment. Let's hope the materials and features match its looks.

I just don’t get it. Kia and Hyundai are their own worst enemies, at least here in North America. Both companies are under the same Koran corporate umbrella, yet they are fighting each other for sales. Fer gawdsakes, put your best designers in one facility and turn out the best product AND SERVICE you can! Then beat the pants off your competition.

Beautiful car.

My one tiny nitpick (goes for many brands) is the steering wheel. I love having a large center hand grip on the bottom of the steering wheel to rest my hand on while on a long cruise and for that matter, most of my daily driving. This wheel has a small hole but doesn't appear large enough to hold while driving.

Looks a bit like the current design of the Camry on the outside

IMHO they are doing a fine job to fill every segment as possible using the same platforms, while Kia tend to put out a more sporty/Masculine designs, Hyundai tends to soften up the outside a bit, while leaving the Genesis brand to chase higher (beside the K900 that could be considered as a halo car).

Like Ford/Mercury?

Indeed, with one exception where Ford/Mercury are not in the JD Powers top three slots.
