Since the Forte K3 is based on the Hyundai Elantra, it's safe to say that the Forte K3 comes with a wheelbase of 2700mm, a well 50mm longer compared to the outgoing Forte. From the side, it is noticable that the Forte K3 has a more 'forward moving' design. Kia opted BMW's 'Hofmeister Kink' feature for its rear window design, and it blends well with the rest of the car. The taillights if seen from the side reminds me of its cousin, Elantra.
The Forte K3's taillights also has some hints of its older brother, Optima K5, but Forte K3's look curvier and more interesting to look at! It won't be long for Kia to release the official images of the Forte K3's interior...
