Kia Forte Overview

Kia's Forte provides generous interior room and a wide assortment of amenities. The sedan offers seating for five in a sleek, stylish design. Our tested base LX sedan got 28 mpg overall with the 1.8-liter four-cylinder and six-speed automatic. It has a smooth powertrain and a relatively quiet cabin. EX models are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder. The hatchback and coupe get a 1.6-liter turbo. The Forte is available with a host of features not normally found in the class, including front/rear heated and ventilated seats, and a heated steering wheel. Kia claims the 2015 models get better fuel economy. First year reliability of the redesign has been average.
