About Kia Forte
When it comes to reliable and good car, Forte is an example of a perfect compact ride. The cabin is roomy and plush. Everything is made from high-quality material. It is also affordable, although some people say that its CVT isn’t so satisfying. But the firm driving quality, and the fact that it can get you to places quite comfortably, are just some of the fun things to expect from the ride.
In terms of price, the Forte may deliver a nice price tag, but you can also get other types from the similar tag, including Mazda3 or Honda Civic, especially if you are into sportier compact ride. Want to have more improved look? Hyundai Elantra would be a great option.
General Tag Price

The next one would be the GT-Line and EX, with the starting price of $20,500 and $23,000. And the last one would be the GGT that may start from around $22,000. You can get high-quality parts and components, including touchscreen techs and leather seats.
Refined Cabin with Roomy Space
The cargo space is nice and satisfying. It’s a perfect family ride that will give you satisfying performance. The trunk space is also spacious, enabling you to carry tons of things. Even when you are going on a road trip, carrying all the big luggage, the trunk won’t disappoint at all.
Another thing to like about the Forte is the quality interior cabin. Not only it is stylish and sleek, but it is also plush and comfortable. Thanks to the quality materials, the cabin has this exclusive vibe and somewhat luxurious feel. Kia is able to think about the smallest details, such as circular air vent that differentiates this Forte from the others. The Forte is able to accommodate people conveniently, with generous headroom and legroom.

The compact ride is able to run on four-cylinder unit, generating 147 hp. It may not be the fastest ride in the market, but it is comfortable, trusted, and reliable enough to get you to places.
The base trim may only offer 147 hp, but the higher one (with four cylinder 1.6 liter capacity) is able to generate 201 hp, matched with manual transmission. It is able to reach 60 mph in an average of 6 seconds.
As a compact ride, the Forte is able to deliver impressive fuel economy.
