New KIA Cerato for 2013
I often wonder what the future holds.. Not just for me, for all of us! Well look no further my friends because the future is here and it looks Awesome!
What KIA are proposing for the new look of their top selling small car model, the Cerato (Forte overseas) is nothing short of stunning. Peter Schreyer is the man responsible for the design of not only this masterpiece, he is also the man that has changed the face of KIA.
His designs have been winning awards for years so he has definitely got the knack of hitting the sweet spot when it comes to making you long for his newest one.
Peter who I hear you cry?? Well you may not know the name but you’ll definitely know the designs. Schreyer is the man that brought us a modern take on a classic nay treasured design.. The Volkswagen Beetle. Furthermore he delivered the first of a new breed of coupe that people bought in their droves.. The Audi TT. Ok so the original TT wasn’t to everyone’s taste but it stood the test of time with 8 years of production and only the mildest of tweaks and facelifts.
I personally think his designs for KIA’s new cars have been nothing short of revolutionary. The ‘Tiger Nose’ grille, strikingly sharp features and really individual designs for the models he’s cast his magic wand over thus far have really livened up the marketplace. KIA along with their chief designer have pulled another stunner out of the hat with this New Cerato, it really does offer something different from it’s main opposition. I love it’s smiley face with a hint of mystery and that’s what Schreyer does so well, he grabs you with clever lines, sharp mystique and then you feel somehow powerless to resist. The man’s a Genius!
KIA promises a similar story on the inside with revolution over evolution being the name of the game so watch this space. I imagine we’ll see more of the KIA fancy dancy UVO voice command system, developed with Microsoft. Apparently it can order you a coffee from Cristophe’s! Not quite, but it’s pretty nifty.
Did I forget to mention that not only will it come in the cool looking sedan (saloon) in the pictures above and 5 doorhatchback guises it will also come as a 2 door coupe. I can’t wait to find out whatengine is going in that!
Things arereally looking bright for the KIA brand. Not only does this New Cerato look like a real challenger,they have awards coming out of their ears for most of the models in their new cars range. The Rio, Optima and Sportage to name a few. Funnily enough that Peter fella has waved that magic wand of his over those 3 already!
KIA are really asking a lot of questions of the bigger manufacturers and as consumers that can only mean one thing.. We win!
