      Beautiful design..from KIA.

      It shows that if you want to penetrate the bigger European market you must do something radical. KIA acknowledge this and hire Peter Schreyer as chief designer to help inject European flair into its design, which is a must for a low-cost car. In the automotive industry another example of hiring foreign expert is Nissan. They hired Carlos Ghosn as its CEO, turning the debt ridden company around to profit making entity.

      Why is it everytime I can’t help but to compare it with Proton?
