2009 Kia Forte compact sedan details | Rpmgo.com

Last Thursday, the South Korean company announced their latest car, the 2009 Kia Forte compact sedan. With the recent high gas prices, Kia hopes to boost sales by releasing this new fuel efficient car, of which they hope to sell 30,000 units this year and up to 250,000 in 2010. The car will be offered with Kia’s 124 hp 1.6 liter engine and a 2.0 powerplant is scheduled to be added to the range soon. Priced from 11.9 million won ($11,300) to 19.6 million won ($18,300), the 2009 Kia Forte will go on sale this week and will compete cars like the Hyundai Avante, the Renault SM3 or the GM Daewoo Lacetti.
