Kia Forte Hatchback premieres at New York Auto Show. Kia Forte or also known as Kia Cerato Forte in Singapore, has a new hatchback variant. Personally i think it’s quite boxy from the angle. The sedan Forte looks better.[singlepic id=1012 w=630 h= float=center]
As from the rear of Forte Hatchback, i think it looks better. It reminds me of VW’s Golf.The 5 door Forte it’s the third variant to join the current widely known Naza Kia Forte Sedan and Forte Koup (a 2 door coupe) available in certain markets.[singlepic id=1017 w=630 h= float=center]
Focus from the lower rear, we can see a more sporty rear diffuser fitted to the Kia Fote hatchback. As the below photo shown, also fitted a rear spoiler and wiper for the Forte Hatchback.

As most of the Malaysian would think that it’s not practical but other markets like America – To them it is more practical. A good example is when they fold the rear seat to enable them to transport big piece of items like furniture. Having said that, whether Naza decided to CKD the Forte Hatchback depends on Malaysia market response after seeing these photos.[singlepic id=1025 w=630 h= float=center]
Our sources tells us that there’s a slight revised front fascia but personally i not able to see any difference from the normal Naza Kia Forte that we have here. The engines remain the same for the hatchback Forte, which is a 2.0-liter and 2.4 liter only available in certain market found in the sedan and coupe version of Forte. Other markets like Malaysia will most likely getting the 1.6 and 2.0 liter found in Naza Kia Forte.
There’s also a updated center console and we will update once we have them. The Kia Forte hatchback will be available in America first in the coming months.[nggallery id=31]
