Chinese motorists know this model under the name KIA K3. It is known that the new product will take little from the global version of the car. Chinese Cerato will receive not only a changed appearance, but also a new motor.

KIA has prepared another novelty for the Chinese market. The company is preparing to present its Chinese customers a new version of the Cerato sedan. Recall that in China, this global model is known as KIA K3. The first spy shots of the future debutant have already appeared on the web. Photos posted a specialized portal Autohome.

The Chinese version of the KIA Cerato 2019 model year will receive new athletic bumpers, elongated head optics of a distinctive design, as well as an overall radiator grille with chrome-plated vertical sections.

Inside, the car has become more chrome due to special inserts. Also, the manufacturer changed the climate control unit and equipped a modern multimedia sedan with voice control support.

 As a motor, the Chinese will be offered a new one and a half liter engine. KIA is not in a hurry to disclose its characteristics. Another engine available for the Celestial Empire is a 177-horsepower 1.4-liter turbo engine, working in tandem with a seven-speed robotized gearbox. It is possible that the company will bring to the market a hybrid version of the sedan. On the prices of the new Cerato / K3 for China there is no information yet. For comparison, 96,800 yuan is being asked for the most affordable version of the current model.

In the meantime, the Kia Telluride flagship crossover premiered at the motor show in Detroit.
