Kia previews the 2019 Forte sedan prior to Detroit debut

NAIAS 2018 Kia Forte facelift gets Stinger-inspired design Kia previews the 2019 Forte sedan prior to Detroit debut

Kia is set to unveil the new Kia Cerato at the Detroit Motor Show 2018. At the time, it was unclear if this vehicle would be the Cerato or Europe's new C'eed, and it may indeed end up launching as both.

Known as the Kia Forte overseas, the new model will showcase a very sporty and modern design with some cues inspired by the Kia Stinger sports sedan. Now, the design is making its way to other, more affordable Kia models - like the Forte.

If these renderings are an accurate indication of the real auto, the Forte will have a more muscular appearance thanks to the pronounced creases in the hood, a deeper tiger nose grille, and an aggressive front bumper with big air intakes.

Kia will disclose complete specs on the 2019 Kia Forte at its press conference on January 15, at 11:35 a.m. (EST) at the NAIAS.

The sedan is just one bodystyle in the Forte family, but we can expect that potential successors to the Forte Koup and Forte5 hatchback will follow the four-door's lead.

"Around back, the rear bumper gets the same treatment with separate reverse and turn signal indicators located beneath the taillights", according to Kia. But the design also looks a lot more grown-up and upscale, with hints of the current Kia Optima mid-size sedan, the better to compete with more upscale-looking rivals, such as the redesigned Honda Civic. The company says most of the buttons are "intuitively placed" below the large touch-screen interface, with plenty of functions packed into the screen.

The Forte's cabin is designed with a horizontal theme for an expansive feel, Stinger-inspired spoked circular vents, and clean, simple controls.
