2010 Kia Forte video…play it loud
With it’s latest four-door compact sedan, joining the US line-up in the summer this year, Kia wants to play it loud. Fresh and modern styling, roomy interior, advanced powertrain technology and a ton of cool new features are some of the qualities that Kia Forte will use to fight against it’s main Japanese and US rivals.
Replacing Spectra sedan, the Forte is set to at least repeat it’s predecessor’s sales results, achieved over the past few years, but Kia’s officials (and us Kia fans) are hoping Forte can do it’s job even better.
We have published an official Forte press release, issued by Kia Motors America yesterday, that includes Forte’s engine options, vehicle specifications, trim levels, estimated MPG numbers, warranty information, … well pretty much everything one would like to know about a brand new vehicle.
Except of one thing, the press pack lacks pricing and sales date details. Well, it’s still too early for the pricing information, but it is expected to be announced closer to Forte’s sales date. The Forte sedan is slated to arrive in U.S. showrooms by late spring or early summer of this year.
To continue our Chicago Auto Show reports, I’d like to share with you this video, tapped during the official unveiling ceremony of the 2010 Kia Forte. It’s an interesting video featuring a Chicago-blues-band playing an intro “Kia song” and Tom Loveless providing all the juicy Forte details to the media. Have a look and enjoy!
