2014 Kia Forte EX Long-Term Road Test

2014 Kia Forte: Front Door Reflectors

November 12, 2013

2014 Kia Forte

When I opened the doors on our 2014 Kia Forte, I noticed something unique: reflectors. Sure, I've got them on the wheels of my bicycle, but I couldn't recall seeing this feature on the inside of many car doors.

I went down to the Edmunds.com parking garage to investigate a half-dozen of our long-term cars and sure enough, only a couple of them shared this safety feature. It's just a small piece of trim, but details like this put the Forte among my favorite compact sedans.
