Kia has Black hamsters; GM has Korean guinea pigs

General Motors will launch its new Cruze5, a hatchback version of the Chevrolet Cruze, in the Korean market. This is another sign of the importance South Korea has in GM's global perspective.

Anyway, kind of a cool-looking car. Sporty hatchbacks seem to be making a comeback even with mid-sized cars. In Europe, Hyundai's flagship Sonata (called an i40 there) will also be available as a hatchback.

  1. GM has Korean guinea pigs... hahaha... that's pretty much true.

    Not sure if it will fly in Detroit? Test it in Korea!

    But then again.... to Hyundai/Kia, Koreans are guinea pigs too. All the stuff Hyundai/Kia sells world wide gets sold and tested in Korea first.
