    I understand they can’t give these cars away after all the work they put into it but I was hoping they would be about $3k to $4k USD less. Still it’s a lot of bang for the buck. The problem in the USA is going to be dealership markup on the prices. If KIA dealerships mark up the price too much, no one is going to buy it because it will approach the price of a nicely equipped Audi S5 or BMW 3/4 or Merccedes C class.
