Yo: I prefer the Aveo RS too. Not much more aggressive, but much more refined. None of the weird kinks and part lines, everything has a certain reason to it.
Note about the Kia Soul:
The three concept cars - Soul Burner, Soul Diva and Soul Searcher - were created by Kia's European design team, led by Gregory Guillaume, under the guidance of Peter Schreyer. They were developed from the original Soul concept car designed jointly by Kia's design studios in California and Korea and unveiled at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show.
The production model closely follows the three Soul concept vehicles unveiled the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year.
Not quite Korean.
Even more important is the Chevy Cruze (also half a Daewoo, although this time built in South Korea, Australia, Thailand, India, China, Russia and Ohio). The Cruze leaps forward from the Cobalt in terms of refinement, quality and performance (40mpg highway). Still waiting to see how the public reacts...not bad looking.
