In recent years, some of the most improved players on the automotive playing field have been entry-level compact sedans. Many of these so-called economy cars now offer levels of style and equipment that rival larger and more expensive cars. A good example is the Kia Forte. While it's not quite the MVP in this segment, the Forte is nonetheless an appealing small car.
Amid the growing crowd of compacts, this affordable Kia holds its own. We consider the Forte a legitimate alternative to traditional segment leaders due to its choice of three body styles, eye-catching style, competitive feature content and good value. Should you be interested in a fun little car at a low price, the Forte is worth a look.
Used Kia Forte Models
The Forte was introduced for 2010. That year, only the sedan and Koup were available. Also of note for first-year Fortes: The standard transmission was a five-speed manual, and the main automatic transmission was only a four-speed, while a five-speed automatic was optional with the EX Fuel Economy package and the SX. The following year, a four-door hatchback body style joined the lineup and a six-speed automatic transmission replaced both of the previous automatic choices.
Previous to the Forte, Kia's small car offering was the underwhelming Spectra.
