kia forte reviews

Whether it's entertainment, comfort, or convenience, every piece of advanced technology we put into a Kia must enhance the driving experience. That includes available features like ventilated front seats, the UVO infotainment and telematics system with voice-recognition technology, and the Back-Up Warning System* just to name a few.



A trademark of Kia's line-up is the amount of advanced technology that you'll find inside each vehicle. That's especially true for the 2015 Forte. Not only does the Forte offer an eye-catching exterior design upon a longer, wider chassis, it offers premium features that are simply not found in the compact sedan class.

The LX model offers steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, SiriusXM™ Satellite Radio, Bluetooth® wireless technology, power windows, air conditioning, and power heated outside mirrors.

Higher trim levels truly separate the Forte from its competitors though. The optional Premium Package includes unexpected additions like heated front and rear seats, a 10-way adjustable driver's seat, a power sunroof, and a heated steering wheel.

"Here's a car in any of its three iterations -  sedan, hatchback or coupe -  that offers a fair price, peppy acceleration, generous standard features and a comfortable cabin with quality materials. Regardless of which body style you prefer, you'll likely find the Forte to be one of the most attractive cars in its segment."

"There's the inexpensive Forte LX 4-door sedan, which won't leave you feeling shortchanged. The sporty Forte Koup is a 2-door model available with a turbocharged 1.6-liter 4-cylinder that makes 201 horsepower. The Forte5 hatchback offers a cargo-friendly, Euro-look hatchback, and is available with the turbocharged engine. It's a strong lineup when pitted against the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Ford Focus, and it makes picking a good compact car that much harder."

"Since arriving on U.S. shores back in 1991, Kia has rapidly evolved from a purveyor of bargain-basement econoboxes into a stylish and fully modern brand that can compete with the best the mainstream market has to offer. Perhaps no model is as emblematic of Kia's progress as the latest Forte, a compact sedan that combines the value for which the automaker has become known with an attention-grabbing exterior design and a high-quality cabin."

"With strong fuel economy, interior space, value, and an impressive list of available features that is almost unheard of in this segment, the Kia is a strong contender in its class. While we'd prefer the Kia to drive a little more enthusiastically, that's simply not a priority for most prospective owners."
