Critics are raving and saying that this is the most fun car to come from any Korean automaker. The new and improved build of the outer body gives a sportier look for this four-door model. This coup trumps the sedan with its base 173-horsepower and 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. This coupled with the six-speed manual transmission makes this a fun yet sporty compliment to the Kia line of cars.
The new Kia Forte looks poised to go head to head with the Honda Civic Si. Style has remained as a strong suit for the forte. It shares many of the same curves with its sedan counterpart. The rest is unique to the sportier models, including its slimmer, smaller tiger nose grille that evolves the look.
It has plenty of soft touch materials with more features than you would find in a loaded Mercedes-Benz E class from a decade ago. It is expansive and comfortable. The shifter, which has a small round handle that easily fits in the hand, corrects issues from the past. Overall it has better than average materials and built above the quality normally seen in the past.
Standard features include Xenon headlights, LED tail lights, heated steering wheel, power folding mirrors and keyless entry with options such as power leather seats with heating and cooling elements.
The 2014 Kia Forte balances out luxury comfort and convenience with driver involvement and fun. Like every newly designed Kia coming out this year, the improvements have been significant and welcomed.
