Yes, overall the Kia sportage looks really more fierce and handsome, so "lansi" than hyundai...
btw, don't think it should be here so soon as kia recently just launch the facelifted sportage..

I think sorento should come in first as it already in singapore.. but sorento is also handsome, but not so lansi...look..
which is a minus point..



wow.. when is naza going to sell this?

If they rebadge them under Naza, sure minus RM10k in selling price. Thanks informer, the pics are great. Photos taken by amateur sometimes look more realistic than those artistic ones taken by professional photographer. Whoa!! Very nice indeed. Both Hyundai/Kia would make great pairs on our roads.



i think thats the price wink.gif last gen also this price.

Since rm 90k - 100k = forte and cruze ( which is all under naza)

rm110k to rm120k is just nice smile.gif

rm140k = hyundai tuscon
rm150k = 3008

prepare your cheque book! smile.gif

First Korean home-made Super-car...
The Spirra (Tiger...)
Already on sale (in Europe)... and in Auto Shows... >USD 100k...

...Han-Chul Kim is the man behind first South Korean super-car, the Spirra.
Hand-built by Oullim Motors it features a modified mid-positioned Hyundai V8 that packs 500 horsepower, which is good enough to hit 60 mph in 3.7 seconds.
Not bad for a hand-built super-car that costs around $100,000.
The Spirra looks to have a bright future ahead as Dutch car dealer has reportedly already ordered 145 cars. Surely it is not as exotic as Ferrari or Lamborghini, but lets give Koreans some time, after all it is their first super-car...

Maybe this is old news...

If Naza replaced all KIA badges on the exterior to NAZA, then you can expect selling price at around RM120K. Besides, KIA is considered cheaper alternative with less curves and slopes on roof, less classy ingredients on panels and dash so the selling price will still be lower than Hyundai. Since Hyundai is designed by ex-BMW while Kia is designed by ex-Audi, think it this way. Hyundai is Korean BMW while Kia is Korean Audi so when comes to selling price, BMW is always more expensive than Audi.
