Kia Forte 2013 spyshot

Kia/Naza Forte still feels fresh as new, as it was introduced to our shore only in late 2009. It has been in the international market for quite sometimes at that particular time. No surprise that after slightly more than a year with us, a revamped version with 6 speed auto transmission has already been introduced, together with some mild facelift.

Now, a replacement model has been spotted testing, with camouflaged. The current car actually sits on outgoing Hyundai Elantra/Avante platform, meaning that it is already outdated as the new Elantra already on sale right now. The new model is similar in length as before at 4530mm, while the wheelbase is 50mm longer at 2700mm. This put it exactly the same size as the new Elantra. The LED tail lamps is standard, as well as 18 inches wheel, one up from current Forte.
At the front, the car is described to have a heavily contoured hood, with very pronounced pleat on the surface.The headlight too, is described as very shapely like the new Optima, but with "pan handle" protrusion joining the now customary tiger grille. The tail light too, is Optima like, with strong stretchy like design with some reminiscent of Audi A4/Q5 design, with character line joining both side of lights.
