    Kia seems to be moving up quickly. I think their CUV hybrid will outsell the Ioniq cousin. This is just my acceptance that CUVs have taken over the landscape all around me.

    Hyundai and Kia seem to be the new Toyota and Honda of yesteryear. I truly believe that some of the innovations that we are seeing from the other companies are due to how far Hyundai and Kia seem to be pushing the envelope. They are giving people a great car at a decent price.

    Now, as long as they don't sit back on their laurels and think they can start charging ridiculous prices just off of their name I truly think that they are going to a lot farther than what the 80s and 90s would have had us perceive.

    Let's see if the Hyundai/Kia cheerleaders are still happy after ten years of ownership. There's a REASON why they depreciate faster than comparable Honda and Toyota models.

    And I still remember when the same was being said about Honda and Toyota.

    Everyone/thing matures eventually, and with maturity, the bugs get worked out. Well... almost everyone. :) (with my own hand up)
