Is this the 2013 Kia Forte?

Kia has revamped most of it’s lineup, but one model is still needs to adopt Kia’s latest design language, the Forte sedan.The current Forte has been only on the market since 2009, but it looks like Kia is going to be redesigning it as early as the 2013 model year.

Kia World has uncovered design sketches of what appears to be the next-generation Forte sedan. If these sketches are accurate, the next Forte will borrow many of its design cues from the larger Optima.

If the rumors are true, the next Forte will debut sometime in 2012.
