Kia Cerato/ Forte Teased Ahead Of LA Auto Show Debut

Kia Motors has released the first official sketches of the third-generation Kia Cerato ahead of the small car’s unveiling at November’s Los Angeles Auto Show.

Also known as Forte in some countries, the Cerato was Kia’s global best-seller in 2011 with more than 445,000 units delivered.

According to the automaker, the upcoming Cerato will have “futuristic and dynamic” styling, with a more spacious cabin. It will of course simply be a sedan version of the 2012 Kia Cee’d hatchback with some design changes.

Created under the guidance of design chief Peter Schreyer – the man responsible for turning Kia into a global style leader – the new Cerato represents the latest evolution of the design language already applied to the striking Kia Optima sedan, Rio city car and Sportage SUV.

The 2014 Cerato is said to be longer, lower and wider than the outgoing model, which should promise more space inside, and will once again come in the choice of sedan, coupe and hatch bodystyles.
