So I took R2 in to have the first oil change done on it and I had to wait around so I walked around and noticed that the color palettes were posted by model.

I have been looking at rims a lot lately and on the visualizer they do not have Silky Silver as a color choice. I found that odd since this was my ONLY color option when purchasing my forte5.

So I was looking at the optional colors for the Forte and I noticed that Silky Silver was not among them. I asked the guy who sold me the car what the deal was and he told me that those were the 2016 color options. He said his best guess was that my color had been remover for the new model year.

So my fellow forte5 owners that got stuck with Silky Silver as their color option; we might have a little more exclusivity among our already small group of other forte5 owners.

I know there are a few people on this forum who work at Kia so if one of you can either confirm or deny what I was told that would be gggggrrreeeaaaatttt...

I work for a KIA dealership and Silky silver is a color option for the 2016 Kia Forte Sedan, but I have no knowledge as to if it will be available in the Forte5 or not. Right now my dealership has little to no information regarding the 16 Forte5 or Koup. I know our little brother the Rio5 will not have the option of the Silky silver only the Bright silver.

I was looking at the 2016 Forte 5 on the Kia Canada website and noticed that Abyss Blue / Corsa Blue (think that's the US name for it), - paint code K3U, is no longer an option :( One of the specific things I wanted for my current car was the Abyss Blue paint. The demo car I test drove, an EX, was in the color and it really sold it. I think part of reason it might have gone is due to low sales, in turn that is probably because online it looked more purple than blue and that might have put people off, it's also why I wanted to see it in the metal before committing, and was very happy with what I did see.

So I just checked Kia.com and they now have the 2016 forte5 on the vehicle list. I checked to confirm and Silky Silver is out for 2016. Enjoy your limited color fellow silver forte owners.
