Kia’s Forte sedan hasn’t been around all that long, being launched in the second half of 2008 (and making its debut here in late 2009), but it seems that the boys at Kia have already drawn up its successor.

A sketch with a series of profiles has been leaked, suggesting that what’s been penned is the next-generation Forte, depicting a far more flowing form than the current vehicle. Website Kia World, which revealed the image, alludes that the new Forte is set to make its official debut in 2012, and thus as a 2013 model year offering in the US.
