Share

Kia is shaking things up in the compact sedan segment with the all-new Kia K4, a vehicle with a bold design and many technological features. This isn’t an evolution of the outgoing Forte; it’s a complete transformation.

Aesthetical Design of Kia K4

While details regarding performance remain hidden, Kia has generously released full images of the K4 ahead of its official debut at the 2024 New York Auto Show on March 27th. The new design is undeniably eye-catching, with a futuristic aesthetic that leaves the current Forte (known as the Cerato in some markets) looking dated in comparison.

Kia’s signature design language is present but with a bolder execution. The sharply angled headlights, prominent grille, and stylish roofline create a dynamic and modern aesthetic. While unconventional, the previously teased rear C-pillar adds a distinctive touch to the overall look. The K4 appears larger than its predecessor, the Forte. It maintains a traditional sedan silhouette with a trunk lid, but the roofline adds a hint of sporty flair. The rear door handles are integrated into the C-pillar, and the glass windows are noticeably bigger than the Forte. These changes suggest a more spacious interior for both passengers and cargo.

KIA Interior

The interior of the K4 is another major departure from the Forte. Dominating the dashboard is a sleek dual-screen layout, a major feature in many of Kia’s latest offerings. Thankfully, Kia hasn’t completely abandoned physical controls; traditional buttons and knobs remain for climate adjustments, volume control, and quick access to navigation, media, and other frequently used functions. Feel the luxury of having heated and ventilated seats for the driver, front passenger, and a heated steering wheel. Buttons for these comfort features are conveniently located above the driver’s door handle.

Kia has also equipped the K4 with a head-up display, ensuring key information remains readily visible to the driver. Multiple USB ports provide ample passenger connectivity, while a 12V 180W socket serves additional power needs. Driver customization is encouraged with a drive mode button on the steering wheel.

The vibrant teal Cushing displayed in the press images is called “Slate Green.” Still, Kia assures a wider range of color options for the interior, including Canyon Brown, Onyx Black, and Medium Gray. For those who prefer a less touch-centric experience, a rotary controller sits beneath the display for navigating the infotainment system.

Availability and Pricing

She is expected to go on sale in 2025 Kia K4 following its official debut at the 2024 New York Auto Show on March 27th. Pricing information has yet to be released; however, it’s likely to be competitively priced within the compact sedan segment.

The Kia K4, with its bold design language, advanced technology features, and spacious interior, aims to challenge established competitors and redefine expectations in this competitive category. The official unveiling will undoubtedly provide further details on performance specifications, pricing, and exact availability timeline.
