The outgoing Forte was already one of CR's top-rated compact cars, and with this redesign Kia promises a more spacious cabin, better fuel economy, and improved interior technology. The Forte keeps the previous car's 147-hp four-cylinder, but Kia says switching to a CVT will help the car manage an EPA-rated 34 mpg overall--a two-mpg improvement. Increased legroom comes courtesy of an extra 3 inches in overall length.
