Unveiled at the 2018 New York International Auto Show, the All-new Cerato (also known as Forte in some countries) has made a successful debut featuring its impressively enhanced exterior and interior design.




Looking more dynamic and stylish, the All-new Cerato’s design has moved in a sportier direction while preserving the original design elements from predecessors. Let’s explore more of its eye-catching design updates.


Sophisticated yet Sporty Exterior – the Mini Stinger




The All-new Cerato maintains its sporty and youthful image while evolving a more sophisticated appearance that nods to a number of sleek and dynamic styling cues inspired by the Stinger fastback sport sedan.

Like the Stinger, the Cerato’s long hood and short deck style built on a wider vehicle body platform recreate an overall fastback-like shape, fueling a sense of masculinity.




The front end is more aggressive with a new sturdy version of the Kia’s signature ‘tiger-nose’ grille and a Stinger-esque headlamp design, while the Cerato is the first model in its class to come equipped with full LED headlamps. The cowl point, base of the windshield, has been moved back to afford a more athletic and well-grounded stance.




Around back, the rear bumpers are designed to look connected – Much like the Kia Sportage compact crossover, the Cerato now has a sleek horizontal trim piece that connects to the LED taillights.


A Comfortable, High-tech Interior for Everyone




As outstanding as its exterior design, the Cerato’s interior has been redesigned to provide an enhanced sense of spaciousness. In order to treat both driver and passengers to a more comfortable ride, the overall length, width, and height of the Cerato have been increased to allow for more head and legroom, as well as cargo room in the trunk.




Simplicity is the key to the luxuriousness of the Cerato dashboard. Again drawing inspiration from the Stinger, the horizontal layout of the dashboard paints a picture of a wider interior. Minimizing clutter with clean lines and minimal buttons that are intuitively placed below an 8-inch touchscreen adds a sense of openness to the Cerato’s high-tech look.


Sophisticatedly Built for Your Versatile Lifestyle



A more versatile, high-end sedan with eye-catching design, the third-generation Cerato is more attractive to drivers seeking a compact sedan that can accommodate a versatile, active lifestyle.

Thanks to a number of visual enhancements inside and out, the All-new Cerato is geared up to make any journey – whether a short commute or long haul –  a more rewarding and decidedly upscale experience while providing a higher level of comfort.

Hop in an All-new Cerato – every minute you spend in the dynamic and upscale Cerato is unquestionably quality time.
