The EQA AMG, recognizable by the drilled disc brakes and camouflaged rear spoiler, will not ride on a dedicated EV platform, according to sources, with the manufacturer instead opting for an electric-first platform that can also support internal-combustion-engine vehicles, too.

The four-door car will arrive in 2025.

'25 Kia Forte Caught Testing in Scandinavia

Photographers recently snapped new images of the next-generation Kia Forte testing in Scandinavia.

In addition to rumors that the next Forte will launch with a new name, K4, the prototype features a new front end with vertically aligned headlights, similar to those of the new Sorento. The LEDs form a T-shape as they wrap around the wings and act as daytime running lights and indicators.

In the rear, updates include rectangular and vertically aligned taillights connected by a thin red strip that spans the trunk. Exhaust pipes indicate an internal combustion engine under the hood, with options expected to include two naturally aspirated engines, according to insiders.
