2014 Kia Forte: Power Folding Rearview Mirrors
September 13, 2013
After spending three glorious days in our long-term Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster last week, I hopped in our Kia Forte last week for a trip to San Diego.
I expected at least some initial shock based on the differences between the two cars, but it just wasn't there. Sure, the Forte is no tire-shredding supercar, but it was comfortable along the highway and (as many of our editors have noted) it feels nicer than its price tag suggests.
Once in San Diego I parked the Forte and locked it via remote. To my surprise, the rearview mirrors folded up all on their own. In the SLS, you have to do this via button control on the driver's-side door. These power folding side mirrors are an option on lower trim levels, but standard on our EX. Nice touch, Kia.
