Dubai in the United Arab Emirates was the venue for the international launch of the new Kia Cerato.
Kia has released this somewhat bizarre promotional video for its 2013 K3/Forte/Cerato showing the car’s smartphone-driven system that allows such operations as remote engine start and climate control. Thankfully, it also allows the car to be shut down as this car’s off-duty detective owner discovered when an opportunistic thief “borrowed” his pride and joy. The first examples should be in SA by early 2013.
After a number of recent spy photographs, Kia has taken the plunge and released first images of its imminent new Cerato (also known as the Forte and K3 in other markets), along with a (very) short press release.
Kia has released renderings of a Los Angeles Motor Show-bound concept that will showcase the upcoming 2013 Cerato.
