Question Any news on the 2019 Kia Forte5 release date and details?

The 2019 Kia Forte sedan is already being heavily advertised in the US market, but so far there seems to be just conjecture on the 2019 Forte5.

Does anyone know when Kia plans to release details and begin delivery of the 2019 Forte5?

I'm in the market for a reliable, fuel efficient hatchback and have been looking at both the Rio hatchback and Forte5 so am very interested to see what 2019 brings for both.

And with the Forte sedan being completely redesigned for 2019, which I like very much; I can only assume there are big changes coming for the Forte5 as well that may inherit some or much of the sedan's new design.

Thanks,
Al

it could be a while for the Forte hatch before we get info and deliveries for US and Canada, but this link should give you an idea of what it could look like. Obviously specs will differ.

just posted today

that seems silly for the US when Toyota just announced an all new hatchback and same from Mazda, do they know something Kia doesn't. However, from the article it just seems speculation from a Canadian rep, so we will see what Kia Motors US has to say in the coming months.
