2019 Kia Cerato GT fully revealed in Korea


The new Kia K3 GT has been fully revealed in its home market of Korea, including the first images of the hotted-up sedan version.

Known locally as the Cerato, and in North America as the Forte, the K3 GT sedan and hatchback bring subtle sporty upgrades inside and out, along with the 150kW/265Nm 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine as the Hyundai i30 SR.

Compared to regular versions of the K3, GT models get a sportier front grille with red accents, black mirror caps, 18-inch alloy wheels (similar to that of the Euro-market Ceed GT and Proceed GT), side skirts, and a diffuser-style rear bumper insert with dual tailpipes.

Inside, there’s perforated leather sports seats with red pinstriping and “GT” branding, a flat-bottomed ‘GT’ steering wheel, red top-stitching throughout the cabin, and configurable ambient interior lighting in a dot pattern on the front door trims.

Versions fitted with the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic also get steering-mounted paddle-shifters. A six-speed manual is also available.
