Teaser: 2009 KIA Spectra/Forte

Updated: 24/06/08

Kia has released more teaser photos of its upcoming Spectra replacement. Styling has been adopted from the Koup and Kee concept cars.

The Forte is an important model for the US market, where demand for fuel-efficient vehicles is growing sharply. The outgoing model was sold in Europe as the Cerato until the launch of the Cee'd. Think of the new Forte as a sedan version of the Kia Cee'd.

Kia is expected to bring the Forte to Europe, where it will rival small sedans like the Mitsubishi Lancer, Ford Focus, Volkswagen Jetta and Toyota Corolla, however, it is very unlikely to arrive in the UK where demand for hatchbacks are constantly rising.

According to sources, the Spectra name could be ditched in favour for the new name, Forte.

The Forte will make its public debut at the Paris autoshow this October, after being unveiled in South Korea on 21st August.
