It's a good start and a step in the right direction. KIA realizes that they need to keep improving to stay relavant. I'm giving KIA 3 years to perfect the turbo. But that's not enough, I want to see them slap an AWD transmission on it too. Then this would be a beast. You can sign me up for that right now.
That's not too likely to happen. Not only would they have to redesign the entire floor pan to make room for a drive shaft, they would also have to reroute the exhaust under the car, and have to design an entirely new independent rear suspension to replace the torsion beam.
