2014 Kia Forte EX Long-Term Road Test

2014 Kia Forte: Back Seat Features

August 20, 2013

2014 Kia Forte

Our long-term 2014 Kia Forte EX comes with heated back seats, which I don't really need to tell you is a rarity in the compact sedan segment. In fact, only the mechanically and corporately related Hyundai Elantra offers them. More common, though still rare, are the Forte's rear seat air vents.

These features, along with the back seat's generous space (the front seat above is at its rear-most position), add to the Forte's viability as a family car as well as an alternative to larger midsize sedans.
