Media Launch of 2017 Cerato Forte K3 on 29th Jul 2016

I was very happy to be invited by KIA Singapore to their showroom for the Media Launch of 2017 Cerato Forte K3 as I love cars!  They never fail to amaze me with all the specs and features which makes driving so much more interesting.

When I reached KIA Showroom located at 239 Alexandra Road, I was warmly greeted by the Assistant Manager, Marketing, Mei Ting, who immediately showed me around so that I can have a better understanding with regards to 2017 Cerato Forte K3, which a new facelift version.

 I also got a chance to sit inside the car to check out the internal features of 2017 Cerato Forte K3.

 Please don't be mistaken.  I am not the car model hired for this media launch... hahaha!

 Besides the red 2017 Cerato Forte K3, there was another white one on display.  I wouldn't miss out the chance of taking photo with the white car as well.

 My blogger friend, Shaun, was also invited to the media launch too.  So glad that he was there as it seemed like we were the only two bloggers invited to this launch.

More photo taking with the cars!

Pretending to be driving the car... lol.

After Mr Eric Chan, Managing Director of Singapore Motor Operations, Jardine Cycle & Carriage Limited finished his speech, we grabbed the chance to take photos with him.

 Want to know more about the specs and features of the 2017 Cerato Forte K3?  Here you go...

Upgraded 2017 KIA Cerato Forte K3 Sports Refreshed Appearance and New Technologies

  • Updated exterior and interior styling for Cerato Forte K3 model family
  • New technologies improve comfort, convenience and safety
  • Greater driver involvement with new Drive Mode Select system
  • 1.6 Gamma MPI engine and six-speed automatic transmission 

Contemporary exterior styling

The updated Cerato Forte K3 benefits from a new and more modern look that emphasises the dynamic muscularity of the car, while retaining its low coupe-like roofline, sleek silhouette and cab-forward styling.

The front of the car gets an updated gloss black trim for kid's signature tiger-nose grille as well as newly-designed headlamps, bumper and fog-lamps, and a reprofiled hood.  Besides a new rear bumper and V-shaped LED tail-light design, the new Cerato Forte K3 features all-new 16"/17" two-tone aerodynamic aluminium alloy rims, inspired by jet-engine turbines delivering a sense of speed and excitement.

New materials and colours for modernised cabin

Kia's interior designers have introduced new materials to the dashboard and door trims, as well as to the centre fascia and console hood.  The overhead console features a built-in sunglass case, while new metallic trim around the air vents add a touch of class to the highly functional cabin.  

New technologies improve safety, driver enjoyment and cabin comfort

Blind Spot Detection (BSD), which monitors cars behind the Cerato Forte K3 and provides drivers with a visual warning in the door mirror and an audible tone when another vehicle enters the driver's blind spot, is now available as an option.  BSD has been designed to improve safety during high speed driving, where frequent lane changes on either side of the car can increase the potential for an accidental collision.

The upgraded Cerato Forte K3 is now available with a new front-passenger seat ventilation system to improve passenger comfort.  Drivers have the new Drive Mode Select (DMS) system at their disposal with three selectable modes designed to enhance driver engagement-Normal, Sport and Eco.  Each drive mode varies the steering weight, transmission shift mapping as well as throttle and engine response which provide a unique drive to suit the driver's mood.

The new Smart Trunk System offers added convenience to users.  If the driver is carrying heavy items with both hands, this new functionality opens the trunk automatically when the smart key is detected in close proximity to the boot area.

1.6 Gamma MPI engine and six-speed automatic transmission

The 2017 Kia Cerato Forte K3 is powered by a 1.6 Gamma MPI engine and six-speed automatic transmission, producing 130PS with 157 Nm torque delivered to the front wheels.

The 1.6-liter 'Gamma' engine is comparatively light in weight, aided by cylinder blocks and heads made of cast aluminium, with Multi-Point Injection that aids in low emissions and high efficiency.
