2012 Kia Forte hatchback clicked by spy lens

March 2, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Talk of the 2012 Kia Forte hatchback has been doing the rounds for some time now. And now the guys at worldcarfans have laid their hands on some good spy photos of the car. And, going by the images we are sure Kia is lining up a vehicle that would lure.

The 2012 Kia Forte hatchback would be a five-door, as scooped up by spy lens on a frozen lake in Scandinavia. This is the lake were Hyundai and Kia have been testing several vehicles for some time now, it seems. The pictures reveal that the Forte hatchback has a similar front end much akin to the Kia Forte Koup.  The five-door almost shares the front end styling, with a- and c-pillars matching up. The side windows too are almost on similar proportions.

The pictures are luring, though they are just snaps of the car in test mode. We are yet to find out when the car will actually touch the tarmac.

From what we manage to unearth, we think the 2012 Kia Forte hatchback is a likely candidate to be pitted against the Ford Focus and Mazda 3 when it arrives at showrooms. Watch out for the five-door charmer.
