A Kia with rear wheel drive! :O

For me, that was totally unexpected, considering the disposable Kias that I used to see in my youth. I find it very encouraging that they chose to go with a driver-oriented, rear wheel drive platform, especially in an age where the trend seems to be driver isolation and cars that encourage complacency by parking and braking for you.

It would be great if Kia could use that to find its own niche in the market as an enthusiast's or driver's car, somewhere along the lines of the BRZ/FR-S/Toyota 86 or the zoom-zoom aspirations of Mazdas.

A limited number of manuals in a performance-oriented halo car would definitely go a long way to endear it to the enthusiast market, although not likely to happen.
