2014 Kia Forte: Passengers Pluses and Minuses

2014 Kia Forte

I spent some time in the passenger seat of the 2014 Kia Forte this weekend. It's a nice place to be, in many respects.

First and foremost, Kia allows passengers to set destinations and otherwise use the navigation system while the car is in motion, at speed. Hooray for common sense. It's a minor but understandable inconvenience that the screen is canted slightly toward the driver. Most passengers won't mind that.

A perplexing minus is that while passengers get heated seats, they don't get cooled seats as Donna mentioned here. Do passenger buns not bake in July?
