Kia Forte teased ahead of its Detroit debut

Kia Forte teased ahead of its Detroit debut”

The Korean automaker is bringing an all-new Forte sedan for reveal next week at the Detroit Auto Show. Indeed, judging from the images, the new Forte is yet another departure from the Kia you think you used to know. The new face is fresh, but still unmistakably Kia thanks to the trademark tiger nose grille that's now slimmer.

The sporty sedan has certainly given its looks to the new Forte, especially when discussing the muscular rear - but there's also a bit of the Sportage crossover in there, given the horizontal strip connection between the taillights. Now, the design is making its way to other, more affordable Kia models - like the Forte.

There is no word on whether or not this vehicle will make it into the European or U.S. markets. The big design change according to Kia will be a move from the cab-forward design of the previous version to a swept-back cab on the 2019.

New LED lighting signatures look to feature at both ends - though this will likely be reserved for higher grades - while the indicators have been removed from the head- and tail-light clusters and relocated to the bumpers. With a "less is more approach", Kia thought best to make a clutter-free cabin by using clean horizontal lines and installing less buttons for in-car systems. The infotainment screen is one of those "floating" types, and just beneath it are a few physical switches for the HVAC controls and what appears to be a manual shifter. "Aeronautically inspired spoked circular vents similar to those found in the Stinger adorn the dash".
