2014 Kia Forte EX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


The new 2014 Kia Forte EX is leaps and bounds ahead of the previous models. Although it has the same 2.0L engine as the previous year, they switched to a GDI injection system which is gives better efficiency, upping it from 156 HP to 173 HP, yet manages the same MPG. If you leave it on the default ECO setting, it feels sluggish if you try to push it some. It's trying to save you gas. But if you turn ECO off, the sluggishness goes away, but so will your better mileage.

The new Forte EX is quieter. It rides better. The new Forte has the Elantra chassis with the same wheelbase, and curb to curb radius. It has the same 6 speed transmission, but a more powerful engine.

We have had our car serviced at the manufacturers required service points. It has not given us any problems at all. It has been very reliable. There are no squeaks or any other peculiar sounds in the cabin of the car. It is as quiet now as when I bought it. The interior is holding up well. It's been a great car.
