The 2014 Kia Forte is longer, lower and wider. Pricing, drivetrain and fuel economy capabilities are still unknown.
From our preview in The Next Generation 2014 Kia Forte
, Kia last week released exterior shots. The upcoming Forte or Cerato replacement will be called the K3 (Korean market designation). The compact sedan was Kia's best-selling automobile in 2011 with more than 445,000 vehicles sold.
In creating the next generation Forte, Kias design teams focused on giving the next generation Forte an all-new futuristic style, with a more spacious cabin. The extended wheelbase 2014 Forte will be manufactured with an all-new bodyshell structure featuring the almost Kia patented Schreyer directed sleek profile, LED front and rear lamps and a chrome-finished beltline. Expect Forte sales to double when the 2014 arrives in early 2013 if priced appropriately.
