Just like the takeover of Chrysler by Daimler.

Frankly, such inspirations are quite common in the industry and perhaps not illegal (except in the way Chinese do it). Hyundai's old Sonata had a lot of similarities with other cars. The new front grill on i10/i20 with the logo has similarities with Toyota, and the steering wheel does have some similarities with some others.
