Some Naza KIA salesman put up the specs and price in the "Used Car" section, of all places! Hit the search in the Used Car section for KIA Forte. There are 2 there, 1.6 and 2.0 variant. Juicy!

Read a journalist report on FORTE and impressed by the driving performance. Spec wise is top of the B segment while it will be also very competitive in C segment too for the 2.0cc model.

The weight of Forte SX is somehow drag down the performance along with a generous offer of 17 rims. Perhaps 15 or 16 inch is more appropriate option while also improve the comfort and leisure driving. But the stuffs the 1.6 SX offer were far better than other automakers. Keyless start and Stability Control are top selling point of Forte compared to any B segment car below 100k and yet selling at around 82k.

Whoever hold a money of 80k for T and H Japanese brand could give a try to a breakthrough model from Kia. With the spec given, it was a great option other than T&H brand. At least it caught my attention and change my mind. Wish the first batch Forte drivers share their experience with the new Forte. Cheers....

Was thinking to get Toyota Altis 1.6 2007 car 2006 manufactured model or get this!

Altis is fully leather and will likely have better resale value than this, but this is more cool and new.

In term of HP i think Cerato will outperform Altis 1.6 2006 manufactured right?

I won't tell people what car to buy but I have to say that "full leather" is the least of my concerns when it comes to getting a car.

Drive both and decide. Personally I would buy a Forte over a brand new Altis even if both were selling at the same price. That is how much respect I accord to the Toyota Altis.
