Thats an unfair aesnsmest of these cars if Kia can literally duplicate a 7 series and attempt to sell it in the us a brand just starting in luxury can certainly have a design inspired by other makes. Lexus for years has been putting out "s class" LS, the new Genesis looks like mix of up mercedes and BMW styling cues as does the Equus which looks like a Lexus LS with mercedes details. The styling of these cars isn´t groundbreaking for sure but far more original attempt to design cars than the poor credit your giving them. The crossover is down right good looking, the luxury sedan if refined better would be a nice looking car. Not one of these cars looks like a "copy" of any other car.......its like you didnt even look at the cars and just trashed them because Chinese companies typically blatantly copy other designers......
