The all-new version of Kia‘s global best-selling model, the Forte compact sedan (also known as Cerato in some countries), is scheduled to go on sale during the first quarter of 2013 at Kia dealerships in many overseas markets.
Longer, lower and wider than the current car, with an extended wheelbase, the next generation Forte will be manufactured with an all-new bodyshell structure.
Featuring futuristic and dynamic styling, the all-new Forte features a sleeker profile, LED front and rear lamps and a chrome-finished beltline, according to the vehicle maker.
The all-new Forte, to be called ‘K3′ in Kia’s home market of South Korea, will also boast improved quality, upgraded equipment, a more spacious cabin and a revised engine line-up that delivers class-leading fuel economy, added Kia.
After going on sale in Korea later this year, the all-new Forte sedan will appear at Kia dealerships in many overseas markets during the first quarter of 2013.
