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.

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

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

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

Can't agreed more..
Last week i went to the Kia's showroom..
1 of the salesman said that this car will be launch in Malaysia around Jun and July..
In terms of exterior and safety, i'll bet my penny on forte as Koreans are well known by its safety..
Realized or not, Koreans car are tougher than those Jap car...

2nd hand value will be terrible as always and bad fc

Are u sure?
Please don't think that all Koreans have bad FC..
This car is powered by CVVT engine, which is quite reliable and in par with VVTI and V-Tec

There's a coupe version of this car named KIA KOUP..
From what i heard, this coupe version is powered by 2.0 litre engine and the closest rivals are Hyundai Coupe 2.0.

I seriously doubt they can achieve that sort of price for the 1.6L Sedan, as it's a Mazda3/Civic/Corolla competitor. I'd say high 80s to high 90s minimum. Must be pricier than the Latio, at least. Kia ain't cheap no more.

I thought this Forte is in the same category with City and Vios? icon_question.gif

How about Kia Soul?
Is naza going to bring this car to malaysia?

Most likely this Forte is powered by 1.6 litre cvvt engine..
And maybe the 2.0litre engine will be available in the KOUP (coupe version).
I realize some of u guys here expect to have a 2.0 litre engine with the same price range with City and Dugong.
In ur dreams dude..

If they bring in the Hyundai Veracruz and Equus, I wonder what will happen.  hmm.gif

Hyundai Equus not gonna beat Bmw and Merc in Bolehland considering its price and Brand..
Majority people in bolehland thinks that Korean's car sux.. (Typical mindset)
They prefer BMW and MERC becoz these cars will make them more elegant..

A Kia salesman told me that this car will be available in Malaysia around August...
It will be priced lower than the Vios TRD and City..

Will you'll pick Forte if the Kia Optima2.0 prices (which is commonly used as taxi) are lower than 80k?
Now, Kia's are having promotion..
The Kia Optima (not the Novus Spec) is just rm79k...

Will people choose Optima instead of Forte consider its engine capacity (2.0) and nicer interior?
