KIA MOTORS RELEASES RENDERINGS OF ALL-NEW 2019 FORTE SEDAN AHEAD OF NORTH AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL AUTO SHOW WORLD DEBUT
(SEOUL)

January 11, 2018 – Ahead of the global debut of the all-new 2019 Kia Forte sedan at the upcoming North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), Kia Motors today revealed design renderings of the compact sedan.  While the third-generation Forte retains its sporty and youthful image, it has graduated with a more sophisticated appearance thanks to a number of sleek and dynamic styling cues inspired by the Stinger fastback sport sedan. What is most noticeable is that the Forte has evolved from a cab-forward design to one that is decidedly swept-back.

Creases in the hood lend to the Forte’s muscular appearance and distinctive design traits on the front fascia, including a fresh approach to Kia’s signature tiger nose grille and an aggressive lower valance enhance its road presence.  The front clip is flanked by a more dynamic headlamp design and layout.
