TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - All-new Kia Forte now being produced in large numbers

Kia first showed off its all-new Forte compact sedan last July. According to the Korean carmaker, it is scheduled to go on sale in its home country of Korea before the end of 2012. For the overseas market, we'll reportedly have to wait for the first quarter of 2013 before we can get our hands on it.

A recent trip to Kia's Hwasung plant in Korea by our source tells us that the all-new Forte's debut in its domestic market, where the car will be known as the K3, is happening soon. A photo our source took shows what look like a hundred or so units of the sedan (and a lone visible coupe) while they're seemingly being prepared for delivery to Kia's dealers.

How soon do you think Kia's local distributor, Columbian Autocar Corporation, can bring the all-new Forte to the Philippines?
