Kia Reveals Forte Update

Kia has revealed the first images of a sportier, more aggressive Forte. The new sedan, which should make its official debut later this year, gets some serious styling updates for the 2014 model year.

Kia says that its updated Forte, which will change names from Cerato to K3 in its home market of South Korea, gets lower, longer and wider. When comparing it to the 2013 Forte, it looks like an entirely different car that's been restyled from bumper to bumper. Some of the most drastic changes include the sportier fastback-like profile, redesigned rear fascia and new front end. The 2013 Forte is pretty forgettable in terms of looks; this update should make it stand out in the market.

In addition to what it terms "more futuristic and dynamic styling," Kia says the new Forte will have more interior room. It does not provide any information about the car's specs or debut date, but speculation points to an LA Auto Show debut later this year.

The new Forte sedan will hit global markets early next year. Two-door and five-door versions will follow. Kia says the Cerato/Forte was its best-selling car last year with more than 445,000 units rolling off dealer lots.
