A very Pink Kia Cerato seen close to the Second Ring Road in Beijing. This was the very first time I met a Pink Kia Cerato in China, and even better; it was the very first time I met a Pink Kia in China. The vehicle was driving at rather high speed but I wanted a pic from up front. I asked the taxi driver to speed up a bit, which he did.

A very hip Kia K5 sedan in matte-mint green, seen on a parking lot near a karaoke bar in Beijing. Matte-mint green is a rare color for cars, sadly so, and even more so for the K5, which is a rather boring sedan mostly bought in brown. But this particular K5 is all-but boring!, further sexed up with black rear lights, racy tires, black alloys and tinted windows.

A heavily guarded Kia Pride sedan, seen on the streets not far from my home in Beijing. The Kia Pride sedan and hatchback were made in China from 1997 until 2003. Production began at the Jiangsu Yueda Auto Works, in 1999 this formally became Yueda-Kia joint venture. Dongfeng bought half of Yueda’s share in 2002 and the joint venture changed name again to Dongfeng-Yueda-Kia as it is still known today.
