History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Kia Forte page on 19 September 2019, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Kia Forte, known as the K3 in South Korea, the Forte K3 or Shuma in China and Cerato in South America is a compact car produced by Kia Motors since mid-2008. It replaced the Kia Cerato/Spectra and is available in two-door coupe, four-door sedan, five-door hatchback variants. It is not available in Europe, where the similar sized Kia Ceed is offered (except for Russia and Ukraine, where the Cee'd and the Forte are both available).

In some markets, such as Costa Rica, Australia and Brazil, the Forte is marketed as Kia Cerato replacing its predecessor of the same name. In Colombia and Singapore, the name Cerato Forte was used for the 2nd generation while Naza Automotive Manufacturing of Malaysia has assembled the vehicle since 2009, selling it there under the name Naza Forte.
