At SAB & Accessories 2013 you can see cars, light and heavy commercial vehicles, hybrid and electric cars, motorcycles, bicycles, auto parts and accessories, moto and velo, audio and navigation systems, equipment for service stations and car washes, auto and moto tuning, media, leasing and insurance companies!
Now I am going to ask you to search through your memories of late last year and remember the sketches leaked with Kia Forte.
If you do not there is no problem, because we are going to present you today the official version of this car!
From what we can see, this model has a more accentuated lower character line and larger rear taillights, touching it with the new Kia grille design. You will also find chrome trim around the windows and fog lamps, and as a bonus, a revised C-pillar, very similar to the already over expected baby, Kia Quoris.
Official sources have declared that the new Forte will go on sale later this year in Korea, under the name of K3, but we most likely will see it in spring 2013, on sale as a 2014 model.
Best of luck Kia!
Baaaaad time in Korea!
Automotive News has declared that the situation at the automaker Hyundai is facing some agitated times, since the workers have decided to go on a strike.
Their demands involve better pay (an increase of $132), bonuses (30% of the company’s profits) and reduced work hours (8 hour shifts). The leader, Moon Yong says that they will take action if their wishes will not be granted.
This issue is pretty big, since Hyundai survived strikes like this during 1987 and 2008, costing it almost one million units worth $10 billion.
And Kia is not far from that either. Their plan was to stop work for 8 hours today, 12th of July.
Stay tuned for recent updates on how this thing worked!
