It was expected, I think. I'm sure there will be buyers. I see a lot of Rio Cincos and Spectra5s...so these will sell too.
+1if it was a little sporty three door I'd probably go for it
They'll sell. 35-36 hiway mpg with more room/power than the similar priced,tiny Fiesta & others like it. I can't wait to check one out!I don't think the Forte looks good as a 5-door, much in the same way that the Fiesta looks weird in a 5-door. 3-door would have been pretty cool, but then it would compete with their koup.
I don't think these 5-doors will sell that well.
Actually, 5-drs have been doing pretty well for the past few years. I don't think I could throw a rock in my neighborhood without hitting either a Toyota Matrix or a Pontiac Vibe....I don't think these 5-doors will sell that well...
Cool! We (well I...) need some pics! From this bit of info it looks like will have both motors and 6spd trans... AWD I have no need for, but that's me.I have seen the 5 door up close in person a couple times now (I work right next to Kia HQ in the US) and it looks good. I am a huge hatch/wagon fan and think the lines of the car are great. The car needs the 200 HP GDI 2.4L and 6 speed transmission though. I wish it came with AWD, that would make it a big winner in my book.
