The Kia Forte is peppy, economical, and surprisingly loaded with tech features. It's larger and roomier than the previous generation of Fortes, and boasts a new, sportier exterior. As with all Kia models, the 2016 Forte packs a lot of bang for your buck. The quieter engine and refined suspension mean a pleasant ride that feels like a larger, more expensive car. You can choose either the six-speed manual transmission, only available in the LX trim, or the six-speed automatic with overdrive that is standard in the EX and an option in the LX. Choose from a 2.0L engine that can produce up to 147hp or a more powerful direct injection 2.0L that puts out 173hp. Depending on your choice of trim, you'll enjoy fuel economy ranging from an EPA estimated 25 MPG in the city, to 38 MPG on the highway. The trunk is generously-sized, larger than most compact vehicles, meaning you can fit all your gear, from groceries to golf clubs. Standard equipment includes steering wheel mounted audio controls, Bluetooth, electronic stability control, and heated door mirrors. For added style, consider the available Premium Package, with items such as leather seat trim, power sunroof, push button start, ventilated driver's seat, heated front/ rear seats, and heated steering wheel. With the available UVO eServices Infotainment System you can control a number of features when paired with a compatible device. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available on all trims but the LX, which has a 4.3-inch conventional display instead of a 7.0-inch touchscreen. Also available is voice-command navigation. It offers a vivid color, touch screen and relays real-time highway conditions from SiriusXM Traffic (real time updates require paid SiruiusXM subscription).
