Last week saw the domestic (Korean) market introduction of the all-new Kia Forte, which is the next generation Cerato (also known as ‘Spectra’ in some countries) and will retain the Cerato/Spectra name in overseas markets.

Have a look at the below video of Kia’s Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, as he talks about some of the exciting styling characteristics of this completely redesigned model.

    I’m noticing you guys are not just placing a face in the products but look at the muscular appearance. It’s been Schreyerlized. I like it.

  • Everyone in Malaysia is REALLY, REALLY looking forward to the Forte. I hope Peter Schreyer can come here for the launch.

  • I cannot wait till these cars are released, I need something new to play with!!!

    I wish Kia would stop teasing me with this Lime Green color on all the spy shots and such and make it available for purchase…

  • Tariq

    I liked it very much. When will it be available in the middle east?

    Sorry to disappoint you. We don’t have any plan to introduce Forte in Romania.

    Thank you!

  • NIce car for the money. Great packaging with the invcentives and warranty. KIA is setting itself apart from Hyundai in a grand way. Look out Scion, Ford, here comes the KIArush…
