Below is a transcript of Ryan LaFontaine’s discussion with Orth Hendrick VP of Product Planning for KIA Motors.
Ryan: After last year’s iconic debut of the all-new Kia Stinger and it being a 2018 finalist for Car Of The Year, you’d think the group would rest on its success…think again! I spoke with Kia’s Vice President Of Product Planning about why the new Forte is so appealing to the everyday driver.
Orth Hedrick: The LaFontaine customer is going to love the new 2019 Kia Forte… it’s fantastic looking. It’s got amazing, sophisticated style. It looks completely different than the old car. And more importantly, it’s an all-new car…A new engine, a new transmission, a new body, everything’s new on the car. So significant improvements in safety, fuel economy, technology, and also design. It’s a beautiful car.
Ryan: Thank you Orth and before we let you go give us one thing you’ll take away from your visit to the Motor City…
Orth: I got the Family Deal!
