Style changes don’t seem too sharp.
In the beginning of this year, KIA announced that it is working on a product that will be “even more exciting” than the current version. It seems that the spies were the first to shoot this model.
This writes the Chronicle.info with reference on live cars.
Maximum clad in camouflage, Kia Forte GT in 2020 promises to be even sportier than the base model. Most likely, the car will have a new front end with revised grille and larger air intakes. In addition, the model will receive a modified rear bumper and dual exhaust pipes.
Though the styling changes don’t seem too sharp, the model should get a more powerful motor. According to unofficial information, the most likely is the power unit from Hyundai Elantra Sport — 1.6-litre 4-cylinder turbo engine, 201 horsepower and outstanding 264 Nm of torque.
The engineers have to modify the engine to increase the power on 54 horses, and torque to 350 Nm. This is a significant improvement compared to the baseline model, in which the 2-liter 4-cylinder aspirated produces 147 HP at 178 Nm of torque.
It is expected that Forte GT will be a top of the line Forte. He’ll get dual-zone climate control, new 8-inch multimedia system with touchscreen and a set of driver assistance systems. It is also possible to install sports seats.
