So far, Kia cars have yet to make an impression, especially with the Malaysian crowd and with the launch of the Forte, they might just have it right with trying to dispel the fact that Kia cars are less reliable. Some has even gone on to believe that the Forte is set to replace the old and often unreliable Spectra which was nice at launch but barely made it through to its fifth year.

whichever way you see it, their focus in the sedan segment will surely give its competitors something to worry about as the Korean car brand has been able to make some headways in other markets like Europe and the United States which they are now intending to do so here in Malaysia and around this region as well.

They have brought in 3 different variants of the Forte knowingly the 1.6EX, the 1.6SX and of course the top of the range 2.0SX. Both the 1.6 versions are sold for RM75,800 and RM81,800 respectively while you will have to pay RM93,800 for the top version.

Under the hood is where you get the 2.0 liter engine that gets you up to 126 horses at 6,300rpm and a torque of 157Nm at 4,200rpom. The higher version gets you up to 156 horses. According to Naza Kia, the cars come with 2 years warranty or 50,000km where they are planning to roll out some 6,000 units each year.

Kia cars have, over the past few years gone through various stages of reposition and of course rebranding where they have so successfully broken away from the typical old fashioned models which they were previously known for. These days, Kia cars are very much renowned for its futuristic and modern designs as well as the cool accessories which will surely entice buyers to give it a thought when buying a car.
