However, some cars that they heavily rely on in their sales charts still need a substantial revision. Just about every month of sales increases Kia announces, its top performer is the C-segment Cerato, Forte or K3, depending on the market.

KoreanCarBlog today reports on what a number of forums are calling an authentic rendering from Kia of the 2013 Forte sedan, which is supposed to debut next month at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show. There has been no official word yet, but the situation should be clarified in a couple of weeks. The car is supposedly designed by Peter Schreyer, the same person responsible for the GT concept and the Picanto. The glass is different from the current car, and since this isn’t usually changed in a facelift, it’s likely a new Forte.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
