As soon as Kia placed the new K3 compact sedan at a mall in its home market of South Korea, we knew it was only a matter of time before the automaker would blow the covers or in this case, the box off the compact sedan model.
The first thing you need to know about the K3 is that it is a global model with the alphanumeric moniker used only in Korea where it goes on sale this fall.

In the first quarter of 2013, the sedan will begin arriving in North American dealerships as the 2014 Forte and in other markets as the new Cerato, with coupe and hatchback variants to follow in due time. We still do not know if Kia has plans to sell the compact saloon model in Europe.

I *may* like it better in person but I doubt it
that "swayback" side sculpting makes it look like its back is broken to me
& worse
if they'd changed it just a little (imho) it could've been more-than-Nice

but then
the front, rear, & greenhouse are only blocky/drab/&90%

wonder if overall it will feel 'tauter' than the current one? "Longer, lower and wider than the current car, with an extended wheelbase" = unlikely
