As a small sedan, this version of the Forte is a good notch below the best in the class, though it handles responsively and comes with standard electronic stability control. The interior feels airy, controls are simple, and rear-seat space is quite good. Fuel economy is competitive as well. Downsides include a stiff ride, noisy engine and mediocre driving position.
