The all-new 2020 Kia Cerato has been caught in Malaysia, possibly hinting that Naza Kia Malaysia will be introducing the model here soon.

Originally previewed at the 2018 Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show, the Cerato was initially scheduled to go on sale in 2019, but that did not happen.

That said, it appears that Naza Kia Malaysia could be introducing the new C-segment sedan later this year, as our friends over at Careta posted photos of the all-new model in Penang.

Power is expected to be derived from a 2.0-litre Nu petrol engine (148 PS, 179 Nm) mated to a CVT-type automatic transmission. Kia has ditched the 6-speed torque converter automatic in favour of the CVT.

Apart from the Kia Cerato, Naza Kia Malaysia will also debut a brand-new SUV, the Kia Seltos, later this year.
