Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Kia Forte Southwest Lifestyle Award

2019 Kia Forte Wins Southwest Lifestyle Award

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Kia Forte Southwest Lifestyle Award

Not too long ago, the 2018 Specialty Equipment Market Association Auto Show took place, and Kia Motors rolled in with all sorts of concepts to show off. Many of these focused on the new Kia Telluride SUV with five trims on display. During SEMA 2018, Kia also showed us a look at the very first vehicle from their new GT Line, the 2020 Kia Forte GT. The current 2019 Kia Forte is already winning praise, along with its popular sibling, the Kia Stinger. Over the last year, the Kia Stinger has won many awards, and recently one a simple little award for the Kia Stinger digital ad campaign. Well now it’s time for the Kia Forte to shine, having just won the “Southwest Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year” Award.

Southwest Vehicle Lifestyle Award

Never heard of it? That’s because it’s the first of its kind – the first Southwest Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year awards were held recently at the Bondurant Racing School outside of Phoenix, Arizona. Many media journalists in attendance rated the Forte as the “Best Value” car, and following real-word evaluations, the all-new compact sedan won the award. Many can attest this to the refreshed look and performance with Stinger-inspired design and improved driving dynamics.

“The Kia Forte was really a standout in the Car of the Year field. It’s stylish, efficient, fun to drive, and comes with premium tech and safety features that you’d expect in a car costing thousands more…It really is a ‘Best Value’ in every sense and it exceeded our journalists’ expectations in almost every category.” – Becky Antioco, event director and founder of Southwest Lifestyle Media.

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Kia Forte GT Debuts in Korea Featured

Kia Forte GT Unveiled?

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Kia Forte GT Debuts in Korea

Wow, it seems like Kia Motors is nonstop with news about its upcoming vehicles. Everyone is loving the refreshed 2019 Kia Sorento, the new Kia Telluride SUV at Fashion Week 2018 gave us a whole new look at Kia SUV style, and we’ve heard the good news about the Kia Niro EV fuel efficiency, although the numbers keep changing (for the better). Most recently, Kia Motors has decided to break off from the Hyundai Motor Group path of performance and turn Kia Motors into a GT brand. We’ve heard tidbits about GT vehicles and concepts, but news about several GT models is popping up, including the return of the Kia Stinger GT4 concept as an electric-coupe.

Going GT

So, a “GT” car is also known as a “Grand Touring” car. Grand Touring vehicles tend to be an automobile in the style of a coupe, sometimes built for only two people, and designed to operate at high speeds while still keeping passengers comfortable. For instance, the Dodge Challenger GT is a four-passenger two-door coupe with all-wheel drive. The Kia Stinger is starting to lean in this direction.

The Kia Stinger is possibly the first Kia Motors vehicle to get the GT tag, with the Kia Stinger GT, GT1, and GT2 trims. It would also seem like the Stinger started a wave, and not just in terms of looks – we can already see several vehicles from the Kia Motors lineup borrowing the coupe style for future model years. The new craze is turning vehicles into agile GT cars, like the Optima GT, Kia Soul GT, Kia Rio GT, and most notably, the Kia Forte GT. More on the Kia Rio GT next week.

When it comes to affordable new sedans, there are honestly only a few options that reign supreme over this enormous share of the market.
