European styling from ex-Audi designer at lower price...

With good after sales service, this car will take sales from Vios and City

and also what type of transmission this car use?

72k sounds tempting, but vios J still a bit cheaper, but if it is me i will choose this car over vios and city, since the new city are more expensive  smile.gif

Vios and City are just B segment car, whereas Forte is a C segment car, meaning same class as Civic/ Corolla/ Sylphy/Lancer.....from value point of view, it is affordable and bargain...

In Singapore, Kia Forte is offered with 4 speed automatic transmission...

Other markets, 5 speed automatic transmission also provided

Guess the so called world reknowned designer's just a marketing gadget he probably dug the design out from his recycle bin.

At least it doesn't look bland like the Toyota Vios...

The car design line at least looks more refined, dynamic and certainly sleek unlike bloated Vios front...

i agree. ppl say copy there and here. but as the result it looks not too aggressive but great. Eurasian i would say sweat.gif

Once people had the mindset of Korean cars are inferior than Japanese car, people will stick with that mindset, no matter how good Korean car is...

In this case, the design is hardly called as "copy", similiarities, yes, because this is a mainstream car, what can you expect from a mainstream car....

Again, the design is an accomplished one, with sleek lines and knowing that, the design is penned by someone who is famous for designed the first generation Audi TT, enough to describe his accomplishment...

Pricing very competitive, and very clean design.

I think it may make a dent on sales like Honda City, Toyota Vios to certain extent.

Now, only Chevrolet Cruze left.

Congrats for the purchases!

The Forte does look really value for money, clean European exterior design, and very very decent spec...
