Tag archive for ‘Forte’
Kia Motors ignited the 2013 Chicago Auto Show when the all-new, ultra-hot Forte (Cerato in some markets) 5-door rolled on-stage.
Our all-new Cerato (Forte) made its world premiere at the LA Auto Show back in November, and last month we asked the 2 million plus people who like Kia Motors on Facebook to ask any questions they might have about our next generation compact sedan.
Today on BUZZ, we’d like to recap some of these momentous milestones and share with you what got us moving in the year 2012. Let’s take a look.
Sculpted to portray ‘dynamic muscularity’ and provoke an emotional response, the sleeker new Cerato has cab-forward styling, a lower coupe-like roofline, distinctive eye-catching concave door contours and a rising beltline with a chrome window molding extending into the C-pillar to project an aura of elegance.
To coincide with the unveiling of the all-new Kia Cerato(Forte) on Wednesday at the LA Motor Show, Kia has revealed details of the version for other export markets outside of North America. This model is scheduled to go on sale during the first quarter of 2013 at Kia dealerships in many countries around the world.
Featuring futuristic and dynamic styling, the all-new Cerato features a sleeker profile, LED front and rear lamps and a chrome-finished beltline.
Kia will introduce the next generation Cerato compact sedan later this year in its home market of Korea under a new name – ‘K3’ (domestic market only).
