The new generation of the Kia Forte, in its 2013 model year, apparently leaked on the internet in some sketches.
According to the “proud owners” of these sketches, kia-world.net, the vehicle shown could actually be the 2013 Kia Forte, which apparently leaked in a four-door shape, and its exterior design is being based on its big brothers at Hyundai. Even if the 2013 Kia Forte seemed to have leaked on the internet, the South Korean based automaker is choosing to keep it in the shadows and doesn’t say anything about the new generation.
As a reminder, the Kia Forte is a compact car made by Kia Motors ever since 2008, which is replacing the Cerato. The Kia Forte is coming in three body styles, two-door coupe, four-coor sedan and five-door hatchback, and it’s not available in Europe, but a similar model found on the Old Continent is the Kia Cee’d, except for Russia and Ukraine, where both vehicles are being sold. The current generation of the Kia Forte is coming in a front engine, front-wheel drive layout and it’s 4.480 / 4.530 / 4.340 mm long in the coupe / sedan / hatchback, 1.765 / 1.775 / 1.775 mm wide in the coupe / sedan / hatchback and 1.400 / 1.460 / 1.460 mm tall in the coupe / sedan / hatchback.
