Communist E-Class?

The Kia Amanti amuses me.  It’s such an unabashed stylistic rip-off of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class that it looks like something East Germany would have created for senior Communist Party members from plans smuggled past the Berlin Wall.  (All hail the People’s Glorious Trabant!)
 
Judge for yourself.  Here’s a photo of the 2001 E-Class next to a 2005 Amanti, with a 2006 E-Class for reference.  (The latter two photos are taken directly from the manufacturers’ web sites, the first one courtesy of Edmunds.)

One response to “Communist E-Class?

  1. Japanese car manufacturers have been ripping off European designs for years… it was only a matter of time. It is not a bad thing for low end cars to try to look good.
