Sedan sales have been declining for a while now. this is the reason Ford doesn’t sell it anymoreand meThis is also why you probably can’t remember the last time you saw something like a new Chevy Malibu or Jaguar XF. Crossovers are on it. Aside from having a bit more room and being easier on the knees for seniors, many have been sold (wrongly) that a higher driving position means they’re safer. This is why the market is saturated with crossovers of every shape and size. Unfortunately, this came at the cost of some good sedans. for example: Car News And the Other ports Report that Kia may kill the K5 and Stinger.

Automakers are so used to selling millions of these things that any downturn means the world will end up with them. Kia still sold Nearly 100,000 (93,342 to be exact) K5s last year. But that’s still a far cry from the six-figure annual sales figures Optima It was coming up, especially in the middle of 2010. The K5 has only been on sale for two years.

It would be easier to actually build on it-Recognize the name familiar to consumers Instead of introducing a completely new car from the ground up. But automakers rarely do things that make sense. But this is not life. Stinger will miss you.
