The front-drive coupe Kia Cerato Koup of the second generation was captured by the photo spies during its final road tests. Soon beloved Kia Cerato Koup will give way to the new generation.

If you would like to have a quick look at the front or rear side of the new model and understand what it will look like, weeeell, you will not have any success, as the testers have well camouflaged their new pre-production sample. But we can see how things have changed in the profile of the model. We must say that from this angle Cerato Koup remained recognizable: heaving aft window-sill line with a characteristic bend in the A-pillars, familiar hood, trunk lid and roof stayed with the new model Cerato Koup. The form of C-pillars is somewhat different, and the area of the rear side windows have markedly increased (apparently, wheelbase, like the four-door model growed from 2650 to 2700 mm).

As for the powertrain, it is reasonable to assume that the European coupe will be somewhat weaker than the “American” Forte Koup (the so-called model in North America) – coupe Cerato can get a an atmospheric four-cylinder 1.6 (130 hp ) and 2.0 (150-hp) instead of 150 hp 1.8 and 175-horsepower 2.0.
