The latest Magentis's look is hardly groundbreaking, and it lacks the personality and sense of identity of most mainstream class contenders. Still, it does have a modern 'European' feel to its styling, something forgettable previous-generation models lacked. Seven models are available, with three engines and a choice of GS, LS or flagship V6 trim. Size-wise, the big Kia is more of a Ford Mondeo rival, but is priced alongside the Focus, giving it an impressive 'large car' feel for family hatch money. There's just a single four-door saloon bodystyle available.
