Just in the summer of 2020, the first spy photos from the tests of the new Kia Forte, known in our country under the name Cerato, were made available to the publication. At the same time, the dense camouflage prevented us from considering the changes that the Korean sedan underwent. It is assumed that the automaker will not be limited to a new plastic body kit. It is possible that a number of design solutions will echo the new Kia K5.
Today we have a new batch of spy shots of the restyling of the 2022 model year Forte sedan, which were published by the ClubStinger portal. Despite the fact that the updated Forte is covered with camouflage, we see a reference to the new one ??K5. in Addition, it is expected that the optics will be borrowed from the Stinger or Stonic.
It is expected that the updated K3 / Cerato will get a new infotainment system, the diagonal of which in the top versions will reach 10.25 inches, as well as a digital instrument panel and a number of electronic assistants. The engine range of the novelty can get a 1.5-liter T-GDI or a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine with CVVD technology (variable valve timing system). The model can also get an intelligent manual transmission, which was introduced quite recently.
The debut date of the updated sedan is not yet called. It is expected that the presentation will not take place before 2021.
