Kia Forte EX Sedan
- Price: $19,500
- Gas mileage: 25 mpg city/36 mpg highway
Kia redesigned Forte for 2014. While still offering that great 100,000-mile/10-year powertrain warranty, the newest version looks great and is still brimming with standard equipment.
Features including Bluetooth connectivity and audio system with iPod interface are standard on the base Forte. EX is Forte's pricier model that adds such goodies as Kia's UVO voice-activated infotainment system, remote keyless entry, integrated turn-signal indicators in the outboard mirrors and a rearview camera to the list.
Roomy and comfortable, Forte is classified as a midsize car. It has a 166-horsepower, 2-liter engine turning the front wheels via a six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission.
