Well, the only way to get this car is to live over there. This is the upcoming Kia Pro Cee'd GT. There are some similarities with our upcoming Forte 5 SX, but this is much sportier.

I've wanted to live in Europe sine the Alfa Giulietta was released or any car of sexyiness for that matter. None of them are released here, just stupid boring trims levels of potential sexiness. Every car manufacturer does this and America itself is to blame, to hell with American Exceptionalism®™, it's a load of BS...

Hey-Hatchbacks such as this and the Elantra GT don't sell that well here. They're very popular in Europe, though.

Red, I'm not sure about that anymore. Look at all the car companies that are selling hot hatchbacks here these days.

I definitely think they're on the upswing.

Hey-They are starting to offer more hatchbacks here and will, I'm sure, add more to our market if sales increase enough to warrant it.

I think the hatchback is a canada thing , mazda 3, elantra GT, kia spectra 5, lexus ct200h, dodge caliber, focus hatchback, hyundai veloster, vw golf, volvo c30, mercedes B class,ford fiesta, honda fit, nissan versa ( the note proves to be very popular), toyota yaris, scion xd, fiat 500, lets name them you turn your head and you see them everywhere.

at the same time the pickup truck market has taken a solid hit you see much less of them on the road than in the last 2 years and many for sale at bargain price. (example 2010 nissan titan fully loaded sold for 7600$ last week around here, you can get a 2008 yaris hatch for 8K )
