The ribbon is cut and the cars are rolling off the assembly line at Kia’s new factory in Monterrey, Mexico, the automaker’s second in the western hemisphere after opening a plant in Georgia about eight years ago.

At a cost of more than $3-billion, the plant is home to production of the facelifted 2017 Kia Forte sedan, with the Forte5 hatchback and another compact car coming soon. The AutoGuide.com team had a chance to check out the new plant and learn how Kia hopes it will help continue its rapid growth.

I'm not going to buy one of those cars if made in mexico. I'm with Trump
on this one, they pay no duties on cars if made there. At least they pay when
cars come in from Korea

South Korea is arguably more developed than Mexico. Other than JUST lower wages for workers (lower standard/cost of living) I also bet the cars are cheaper to ship as well. I just wonder what the quality of the cars will be like from that plant. Don't get me wrong, I know other manufacturers have a ton of factories in Mexico, I just wonder if there will be anything noticeable as apposed to either the GA or SK plants.
