The rear end, as seen here, does resemble the rear design of bigger brother Optima K5, but is less sharp and more rounded. The more organic look also can also be seen on the overall shape and sides. Kia says that the all-new C-segment sedan will be longer, wider and lower than the Forte it replaces.

Kia plans to globally unveil the new Forte by the end of 2012. Domestic K3 sales start this year as well, but the international version will start appearing by Q1 2013. Given that the Forte is locally assembled in Malaysia by Naza, it could take a wee bit longer as the factory will need to prepare for the new model.

If price is between current Forte and Elantra then this car is considered sold to me. The design concept is like Audi to me, simple yet there is a premium feel to it. Not a surprise since Peter Schreyer was the designer for Audi. I like his concept better than the Hyundai fluidic design. His design will last longer and grows on you.

The front has some shape like Scirocco to me. Looks like a lot of people here prefer Japanese conservative and boring design over European simple but elegance design.
