The Forte is Kia's latest line of compact cars. The FWD Forte is larger than the top-selling Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla and includes three body styles: a sedan, a five-door hatchback, and a coupe. Restyled for 2014, the Forte sedan offers a choice of LX and EX trim levels. The base LX model is powered by a 1.8l four-cylinder engine. Although the base model omits a couple of common features like cruise control and alloy wheels, it does have four-wheel disc brakes which is unusual on the entry-level model of many competitive offerings. The higher-trim level EX model includes more powerful 2.0l engine and additional features.
Updated front styling. New 2.0l four-cylinder engine in the LX and S models.
