2011 Kia (Naza) Forte Test Drive & Full Review

2011 Kia (Naza) Forte Test Drive & Full Review

The Forte carries a lot of promise, being the first next-generation Kia model to reach Malaysian shores. With the expectation set so high, it is almost certain that disappointment will follow. Indeed, the Forte does not lead the segment in any one area, although it does acquit itself well as a whole, with its stylish looks and excellent value for money among its strongest assets.

The Forte shows how far Kia and sister company Hyundai have come. The Koreans have been churning out solid cars for some time now, but it is only now that they have started infusing style and flair into their cars. While Korean cars represented little more than bargain pricing in the past, the new generation of Korean cars like the Forte and Hyundai i30 has managed to close the gap on class-leaders. What's more exciting is Kia/Hyundai's future lineup which will soon include the 2011 Kia Optima/Magentis, 2011 Kia Sportage, 2011 Kia Sorento, 2010 Hyundai Tucson and 2011 Hyundai Sonata.

Read the Forte's full review and enjoy the gallery!
