2014 Kia Forte EX Long-Term Road Test

2014 Kia Forte: Ancestor Spotting

November 20, 2013

2014 Kia Forte

I had just picked up our 2014 Kia Forte after its first service when I realized I was behind another Forte EX, also in Crimson Red. I don't know what year this one is, but you can see how the Forte is evolving, having shed its boxier backend and squared off headlights with the 2014 redesign.

When you buy cars, do you tend to stick with a model as it's redesigned? Or do you like to mix it up?
