2014 Kia Forte: Slick Navigation System

July 26, 2013

 2014 Kia Forte

After spending a few days in our long-term 2014 Kia Forte, I found that the navigation system and its associated functions are very easy to use and nicely designed. Take for instance this notification I got when the fuel was low.

This is not a groundbreaking feature by any means. There are plenty of cars that will show you where a nearby gas station is when you're low on fuel, but the fact that it popped up and offered the option without provocation was a nice touch.

On some systems you have to go in and set up this type of notification manually. In the Forte, it just pops up, and if you don't need it, just hit "no" and it's gone. Simple stuff that makes the navigation system feel like it's worth the trouble.
