The new Forte range will first go on sale in Korea at the start of 2013, where it will be named the K3. The range is then expected to reach European markets including potentially the UK by 2014.
Sporting an aggressively-streamlined body, the new Forte is the latest creation from Kia’s renowned Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer.
The new Kia Forte also carries the manufacturer’s current trademark grille design and the cabin is overall larger than its predecessor.
Few other details about the car have been confirmed at this point, but potential UK pricing for the Forte could fall in a region similar to the current Kia Cee’d hatchback. Pricing for the 2014 Forte could therefore range between £15,000 and £25,000.
For now you can find the current Kia model range across Perrys Kia Dealerships in Burnley, Preston and Rotherham.
