2013 Kia Cerato to debut in late 2012
Kia Motors will introduce the next-generation Cerato compact sedan later this year in its home market of Korea under the name ‘K3’. Still to be known as the Cerato elsewhere, the original was Kia’s global best-seller in 2011.
The all-new Cerato will have “futuristic and dynamic” styling, with a more spacious cabin. It will of course simply be a sedan version of the 2012 Kia Cee’d hatchback with some design changes.
After going on sale in Korea, the 2013 Cerato sedan will appear at Kia dealerships in many overseas markets during the first quarter of 2013, to be followed by five-door hatchback and two-door coupe variants, which is odd considering the Cee’d already exists.
