Pretty busy bodywork, not my cup o tea. Biggest gripe, no hatchback.

Yes it is a trend that hopefully will pass. Some of those designs have grown on me & some haven't. Clean design is hard to find these days.

Its design is a little busy but it is a honest to goodness two door performance car.

Take the badges off, and you would never know if it was a Honda, Kia, Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai, etc. Generic garbage.
