2014 Kia Forte EX: User-Friendly Controls

2014 Kia Forte EX

It seems like some manufacturers find joy in "challenging" us with infotainment intricacies and all manner of hidden menus.

So it was refreshing to get into the 2014 Kia Forte EX the other night. Within seconds I had made room on the car's phone list by deleting "Scott's iPhone," whoever that poor guy might be.

An instant later, my phone was paired and ready to go. Truly that simple.

The touchscreen is easy to use and the climate controls are all right there for you in plain old large knobs and buttons.
