We hit the road in Koreans’ dramatic new Mondeo rival. Is it good enough to worry the class leaders?
The new Magentis is solidly put together, inoffensively styled and offers excellent rear legroom. But Kia still has some work to do. Dynamics are outdated, it's expensive and lacks personality.
Let's hear it for Kia! In recent years, few makers have enjoyed the Korean firm's success, with hit models such as the Picanto supermini and new Rio hatch.
Kia has never had much of a reputation for building big saloons - but a new Magentis might just change that.
When choosing a new car, it's all too easy to dismiss a model without giving it a fair chance.
