Kia has done up an Optima convertible, Sorento off-roader, Sedona photo platform, and Forte Koup buggy for this year's SEMA show, each in tribute to a different region of America.


Kia has modified a Forte Koup to represent the American South in the form of the Mud Bogger concept, one of six regional show cars set to feature at SEMA this year.

The recent death of the Hyundai Elantra Coupe in the US may be threatening to change the narrative on these two affordable compact lines, of course, but the Korean two-doors have a lot in common under their distinct skins.

From its divisive baroque styling to its status as the court jester of the rental car circuit, the Kia Amanti has so far lived a less than charmed life. The Amanti's tough luck story could change in a big hurry, however, if a new story from Motor Trend is true. MT is reporting that the Amanti is will be going rear-wheel drive as soon as late 2011 on a smaller version of the Hyundai Genesis Sedan platform.
