Kia just won’t sit on their hands when they know that their cars are at the head of the pack. That holds so true with the new 2016 Kia Forte.
This modern and sleek compact sedan combines value with a stylish attention grabbing exterior design combined with a high quality cabin. You can get this Forte in three flavors; choose the sedan, hatchback or coupe. All models offer a great price with peppy acceleration, very generous standard features and a comfortable cabin with quality materials that belong in a car with a higher sticker price.
The Kia Forte has an impressive list of available features that are almost unheard of in this category. This Forte seats five very comfortably and is available in Sedan, Hatchback (Forte 5), and Coupe (Koup). The Forte gives you a choice that comes in LX, EX and/or SX trims, depending on body styles.
All can be seen and driven close up and personal at Southwest KIA Mesquite. This friendly and customer service orientated dealership will let you test as many as you desire.
Kia always builds on its reputation for value and family friendliness and that is why Kia owners come back later for more. The base engine is a quick 1.8-liter four cylinder that gives out 145 horses that keeps you ahead of traffic. It is available with the standard 6-speed stick or the available 6-speed automatic. Both allow you to drive by gas pumps with a smile getting a 25 city/37 highway mpg. Another great choice is the Forte EX with the brand new Forte 5 LX trim. It comes with the aggressive 2.0-liter four banger paired with the 6-speed shift-able automatic. That system will scoot you down the highway with about 173 hp and 154 lb-ft of torque. Now if you desire some more driving excitement, then take a test drive in the Forte 5 SX. This SX has under its hood a turbocharged 1.6-liter four cylinder that throws down over 200 thoroughbreds and an asphalt grabbing 200 lb-ft of torque. It is paired with the 6-speed shift able smooth automatic. It all starts with an abundant list of standard perks. The base Forte LX features 15 inch steel wheels, full power accessories, satellite radio, Bluetooth hands free calling and more. It just gets better as the Forte EX editions add 17-inch alloy wheels, rear view camera, Kia’s unique Flex-Steer driver selectable steering assistance and a leather wrapped multi-function steering wheel. The popular turbocharged Forte 5 SX has 18-inch alloy wheels, alloy pedals, distinct styling front and rear and LED front fog/driving lights.
Ask about the Premium and Premium Plus packages that will really turn heads. Everything just comes together with the Forte from Kia for a fun driving experience from driving to Grandma’s or taking the foursome to the golf course.
On the safety side, the government gave the Forte its best 5 star rating for overall crash worthiness. That is important as you always have precious cargo on board. Be sure to invest in Kia’s available safety features that help prevent you from using the Forte’s many air bags if you get my drift.
