2014 Kia Forte: Nice Details for the Class

August 7, 2013

2014 Kia Forte

Contrasting dash stitching in a Kia? Yep, and it's not even the big dollar Cadenza. And would you look at that faux carbon-fiber trim? A tad ambitious maybe, but it doesn't look half bad.

These are just a couple of the surprising styling details I've noticed in our 2014 Kia Forte. There are more, too, but the fact that there are any at all shows just how far Kia has come.

I don't expect compact sedans to put much effort into details like this since their main goal is basic transportation at a reasonable price. Then again, stuff like this never hurts, and if you can combine it with all the basics for a reasonable price, then all the better.
