2014 Kia Forte EX: Fuel Economy Update for July

August 2, 2013

2014 Kia Forte EX

Our new Kia Forte EX saw a decent workout schedule for the month of July, rolling up an additional 2,207 miles on the odometer. That included a trip to Las Vegas in 111-degree heat.

Tally that journey in with a steady diet of L.A.'s notorious commuter traffic and overall, the Forte is averaging 26.4 mpg. Not bad, but still a bit lower than the EPA Combined estimate of 28 mpg.

Worst Fill MPG: 20.3
Best Fill MPG: 35.0
Average Lifetime MPG: 26.4
EPA MPG Rating: 28 Combined (24 City / 36 Highway)
Best Range: 376.2
Current Odometer: 3,283
