At this time, there is no official statement yet given by the company but we have some detailed pictures which are claimed as the new 2017 Kia Forte. Many unofficial sites mentioned that this car is designed for buyers in middle class with the cabin design that is taken from Cee’d concept.

The greatest engine will be the 1.6 liter and turbocharged engine for European market that is capable to provide around 201 hp and 265 Nm of torque. Another option is 2.0 liter of petrol engine that has six-speed auto transmission.
