2014 Kia Forte: Rear Vents Are a Nice Feature

March 5, 2014

2014 Kia Forte

Rear vents seem like a no brainer, one of those things you expect to have in any modern vehicle with rear seats. Surprisingly enough, they're not always as prevalent as you think. There's a certain pickup truck in our fleet that has full-size rear seats and no vents.

Given the sheer number of features in our 2014 Kia Forte I probably shouldn't have been surprised that it has vents in back. After all it has cupholders in the rear armrest, too, not to mention a decent amount of space for a compact sedan.

True, it's not the least expensive compact sedan we've ever tested, but it backs up its price with outstanding value.
