I'd be interested in one of these for the States over here. I'd opt for the 5-speed manual in either that blue showing on there or the silver. Awesome looking car, and here in the States one gets the Kia Long Haul Warranty, which is 10 years and 100,000 miles on the powertrain (for the original owner only).
The 2012 Kia Rio hatchback is actually on my shopping list...in a couple of years. The car shown on here, the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS, just went over 73,000 miles and is an absolute champion on the road. I love it's bodystyle best. I am considering trading this Mitsubishi in on a Mitsubishi Outlander SUV with roofracks for our kayak.
it looks like a Forte shrunken down and made stupid looking especially with the tiny wheels
this is a pointless car where i am as the Kia Forte retails for $18k usd with 8yr warranty and you get no reduction in registration or insurance with a smaller car and the petrol saving is insignificant
