Kia has finally revealed what the all-new Forte (called K3 in South Korea) looks like, and according to the Korean carmaker, the new compact sedan is longer, lower and wider than its predecessor.
The new Forte uses an all-new bodyshell structure that gives it its sleek profile, while LED front and rear lamps and a chrome-finished beltline enhance its look.
According to Kia, the all-new Forte will also boast improved quality, upgraded equipment, a more spacious cabin (thanks to its longer wheelbase), and a revised engine lineup that delivers class-leading fuel economy.
After going on sale in Korea later this year as the K3, the Forte sedan will appear at Kia dealerships in overseas markets in the first quarter of 2013, with the five-door hatchback and two-door coupe variants following later next year.
