If you like both the Ford Mustang and KIA Stinger...








Except the Mustang is better looking.

What a disappointment. It's a decent looking car, of course, but it's nothing special at all. The first thing I thought was Mustang GT + Hyundai Genesis but it definitely has some Stinger traits in there as well.

Interior is amazing but they really dropped the ball on the exterior.

The back end looks nearly as long as the hood of the car - it's just not properly balanced, in my eye. I won't say the Mustang is better looking but it's not far off...

BMW was doing that well before everyone else from Infiniti to Koreans starting copying.

I think European automakers need to start doing flat 6's and flat 8's and dry sump to mount engines lower so they don't need to make the hoods/fronts so high for passenger collision safety regs because those regulations are ruining most promising designs.

I think the exterior looks tight and sharp, but the interior seems like a downgrade compared to the 6-series. Kinda reminds of the Honda Spririor's interior with hard plastics all over actually.
