All-new Kia Cerato unveiled at Chicago Motor Show

The all-new ultra-hot Cerato Kia 5-door SX which was unveiled at the Chicago Motor Show.

The covers are off and Kia Motors America (KMA) ignited the 2013 Chicago Auto Show when the all-new, ultra-hot Cerato (Forte in some markets) 5-door rolled on-stage today.

The all-new Kia Cerato 5-door SX’s eye-catching European-inspired hatchback design is complimented by an all-new 1.6-liter gasoline direct-injected (GDI) turbocharged four-cylinder engine putting out 201 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque, making the all-new Cerato 5-door SX the most powerful Cerato from KMA to date.  The Cerato 5-door is expected to go on sale in the third quarter of 2013, and pricing will be announced closer to launch. 

Michael Sprague, executive vice president of marketing & communications, KMA. siad, “we received very positive feedback after the all-new Cerato sedan made its debut at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, and we expect the all-new Cerato 5-door will build upon that success. The combination of a useful hatchback for carrying cargo and the sportiness of the turbocharged SX trim make the all-new Cerato 5-door a dual threat in the segment.” 

Presented in two trim levels, EX and SX, with two distinct engine choices, the Cerato 5-door will offer customers Kia’s long list of premium amenities and features not normally found in the compact segment.  Under the hood, the Cerato 5-door packs a punch, with the EX’s 2.0-liter GDI four-cylinder engine putting out a healthy 173 horsepower and 154 lb.-ft. of torque through a 6-speed automatic transmission. The performance-oriented SX comes standard with the hard-charging 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder, a first for the Cerato line.  The SX also offers buyers the chance to pick their own gears with a standard 6-speed manual transmission, or they may opt for the 6-speed automatic featuring steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
