kkchai Can't wait 1S author's comment on the comparison between Cruze and Forte.

The rear really looks like Forte, but the front looks like the newer generations of Chevy pickup trucks... maybe it's the angle of the shot...

Autobots... roll out...!!!

eugn86 I think the rear doesn't fit the front. Front looks bold and intimidating. I think the rear lamps too big. Anyway, the reviews i read so far all very good. This will be a hit.

LMLP640 The design is too Korean and the price is a slightly steep but i think it should be a good car to drive in

wilswong Looks bulky... the bonnet is really 'thick'

jj_princess Interior looks good! But the power abit low, only 107bhp, as compared to other korean sedans like Forte and Avante with 124bhp and 121bhp respectively. And these 2 cars are cheaper.!!

dan2y The Cruze comes with a 6 speed auto transmission coupled with a very good sound insulation, well weighted hydraulic power steering and slightly heavier foot pedal. All these make the car quite diff...

neutral Saw it on the road just now...same red with "test plate". Looks like a smaller version of "Epica".

Are they following Toyota route (as in Camry to Altis)?

Road Test - Kia Magentis 2.0 (A)

Kia reintroduces its large sedan to hopefully interest buyers who wants something bigger than the Cerato Forte. Under that handsome skin, what else can the Magent...

genes Wow, a critical review. I'm glad the reviewer is honest about the car. It just shows that a more upmarket car in the family line-up is not necessary as talented as the younger brother.
Other than ...

BabyN I went to testdrive the Magentis 2 weeks ago and i was very impressed with the ride and handling that I booked it immediately. It is comparable to most of the more expensive rivals that I tsetdrove...

magzk Yes!! feels good to see a review that is critical about a car, first time on Oneshift I guess. I used to go bonkers reading all nicely written reviews here on China made cars!

domino88 I must agree it is a reasonably good critical review. Though I feel is a little too local with a rather large portion of it focus on the interior and exterior design, etc.

I would like to know more...

wind79 I disagree with this review as I testdrive the Magentis recently and I was surprised with the quality of korean cars these days. No wonder the Avante is hitting the market hard...

Anyway, the r...

jj_princess I have started paying more attention to Kia ever since the Forte launch. And with this new Magentis, I thought Kia has really improved!
Went down to the showroom last weekend w my husband and he t...

azfar Hi everyone,

Thank you for all the comments, and am glad to see that everyone can accept this review by Raymond Lai in a neutral manner. Well some of the comments are contrary to what Raymond me...

wilswong Honestly, 'test drive' for a reviewer and a normal customer will not be the same as well. As a reviewer may have extended period of time to really test out the car in different settings, road cond...
