Rumour is that Forte might come in 3rd quarter of the year and heard pricing might be around 75K.
As for Kia Ceed, not sure. I haven't seen any Ceed in S'pore too.

how far is the rumour true?

read it from another forum. so my guess is just as good as your guess

for the launch period, it could be quite true since our neighbour already launched it in February and I already saw a few on their roads. In SG, the pricing is around SGD4xKm which is lower than a Persona there selling around SGD52K, Vios and City also around SGD5xK. So pricing wise, it might also be true as rumoured to be around 75K.

Do you think that Kia Forte will outsales City and Vios?

that wouldn't happen coz malaysian's perception of honda and toyota brand is superior to that of KIA. that is why KIA is going for a bargain at lower price with good specs. If you see in US, kia and hyundai is picking up fast. even magazines are saying that korean's time is coming, with them having the technology, price competitiveness and now some good designs coming out.

I can't comment much about the interior quality, but the exterior looks of the Forte is really nice in real life. Just need to do some simple mod like lower the ride, put a diffuser, put front bumper lip and side skirtings, then tint the windows black a bit.

Even tough it may not outsell vios or city, but definitely it eat up their market share. btw, forte is actually meant to compete C segment cars like Civic and Altis in US. So spec wise, surely better than vios and city

Any bodykit include? I doubt the price is RM9++++K for CBU? If this really the price, hyundai can close shop already..

I'm not sure if current Hyundai Elantra is CBU or CKD, but if they can sell a 2.0 Elantra at 90k plus, then why not KIA?

cars nowadays are manufactured soft in the front to absorb collision force. like some parts are design to be broken easily such as the pedals and steering shaft during collision. almost any car u press the bonnet also will bend now
