Beauty is in the eye of beholder. The new look is too much a change for me, especially the odd looking C-pillar. OK I boomer, @RadX say one. :D

I prefer a clean design without unnecessary cuts, angles, edges and lines. Current K3 looks good to me. This upcoming one, nah.

Looks like an EV

Nowadays all try to imitate tesla EV styling. Saw the new honda vezel, also adopt the same kind of squarish, blockish appearance.

I think they been using this style C-pillar since Optima and Stinger... I oso say fugly lol

But makes me wonder if this car will ever make it here... suspect it wont if there is a budget line under it

i always dislike the Kia gear change lever. They think it's the thrust lever for a airliner. 

looks very futuristic. But nope for me.

I also don’t like. This is why i would rather consider hyundai than kia due to the gear lever. 😂

Actually it looks ok to me. The current one a bit long in the tooth liao 

Maciam the elantra when it first came out. That was even more polarising but we all survived...

Rear quarter visibility likely will be very bad. 

Yes, the optical illusion of the mismatch C-pillar and the rear windscreen actually take up lot of space, if you get what I mean. Compromising look for practicalility.

To be fair, the Stinger look way better than this ugly duckling, imo.

When many manufacturers are simplifying the gear shift lever (some even have just a switch like knob - VW Golf & Skoda Octavia for example), Kia is going the reverse way, which don't quite make sense as we are entering the EV era (where most have no gear).
