The first pictures of Hyundai's inoffensively styled EU-market i30 five-door hatch have found their way out onto the 'Net at large. A mechanical and platform twin to the Kia cee'd, the i30 shares the same complement of diesel and gas engines. The i30 is also the first car to show off Hyundai's new nomenclature that will be announced at Geneva and thankfully won't find its way here.

Are there any production-ready pics of the Kia hatch?

We as in the world. Both Ceed and i30 are Mazda3 wannabes.

Why does it bother you so much? More choices for the consumer.

It's like those fake Rolex watches. They offer more choices to the consumer too.

You say that like the Mazda 3 broke new ground in some way. C-segment 5-door hatches are probably the most popular body style in Europe and every car company in the world makes one. This car and the Cee'd are just replacing existing models anyway.

I am not talking about the segment, I am talking about the styling. It's very derivative.

Derivative?! It was done on tracing paper.

Holy crap, the back, except for the tailight extension, looks like a 1-series.
EDIT: I'm really never one to cry foul on companies copying each other, but look at this:

yep. and that's no differnt than any of hyundai's cars. they all look handsome and sporty and even, dare I say, desireable. but they all have ZERO originality or individuality. ....I have opinions, but I'll refrain from saying their cars are bad or good. I guess it depends on what a person wants out of their car.
