Kia Forte Expert Review

Staff Writer

The Kia Forte is a reasonably priced sedan that replaced the Kia Cerato model line-up in 2010. The Kia Forte raised the bar this year, particularly with the 2013 coupe. Reasonably priced, the Forte is designed to be attractive to anyone, no matter the age, gender, and occupation. However, Kia says that the Forte was specifically designed for a younger target market. For first-time Kia buyers, good reliability ratings, decent resale value, and impressive standard warranty should ease some concerns.

The Kia badge on the hood, trunk, and steering wheel has a new design, and the coupe and four-door hatchback get new 16-inch wheels. SX models get standard LED daytime running lights; along with power-folding outside mirrors that also come on the EX model. The washer fluid warning light becomes standard on all models. Crimson Red and Metallic Bronze are new exterior colors.

The front fascia of the 2013 Kia Forte is exquisite, modern, and quite distinctive. The black grille with chrome borders makes the Forte uniquely idiosyncratic. The rear fascia just like the front comprises of large tail lamps that extend to the side of the car, giving it a very sporty appearance. Although the Forte may not be as aggressively styled as the Mazda3 or Ford Focus, it easily outdoes the Nissan Sentra and Toyota Corolla.

When it comes to wheels, all three trim levels have different tire sizes and the SX comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels. The EX, four-door hatchback and coupe get 16-inch alloy wheels and a sunroof is included with the premium package. Customers have the option of getting the door handles chrome finished or the usual body color. Kia has stated that the Forte was specifically designed to cater to a younger target market, hence the availability of bright metallic exterior colors and a sporty youth-oriented outlook. The 2013 Kia Forte comes in four-door hatchback models, two-door coupe (that Kia has named ""Koup"") and the conventional four-door sedan.

Since its introduction the Kia Forte has been offering leather seats that are also heated, Bluetooth connection for hands-free mobile phone connection, push-button start, paddle-shifter for manual gear changes (which gives the Forte more of a race car feel), and a navigation system. Seats for the rear passengers in the coupe are, however, not so comfortable. Pretty much anyone with average height and weight might need to squeeze themselves into the back seats. Although coupes usually have crammed back seats, the Forte coupe could have done better. The EX also includes keyless entry, cruise control, full power accessories, a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, map lights, and a trip computer. The top SX trim level aims for a sportier look and feel, with black surfaces accented by silver trim and red lighting. The standard stereo system comes with four speakers, which play CD, MP3, and AM/FM radio. This year the Kia Forte also gets an additional acoustic insulation and upgraded leather steering wheel. The interior is satisfactory, but it is conspicuously a notch down from what customers will come across in a Ford Focus or Hyundai Elantra. Forte comes in three trim levels: LX, EX, and SX with the SX being the highest trim level available in the Forte model. Customers who choose to buy the four-door hatchback or two-door coupe can also choose between the three different trim levels.

Decent safety features have been designed into the new Kia Forte. Front and side airbags, as well as side curtain airbags deploy upon collision to keep the passengers safe from severe injuries. Side curtain airbags cover both front and rear window to keep the driver and/or passengers from hitting the glass window. Anti-lock brakes are standard on all trim levels. Electronic brake-force distribution ensures each of the wheels receives correct amount of braking force in order to stabilize the vehicle in snowy or rainy situations. This combined with stability and traction control gives the driver a tremendous amount of control even in difficult conditions. Also included is brake-assist, which assists the driver in applying the brakes and slowing down the car under circumstances when the driver somehow fails to apply enough pressure to the brake pedal. In the frontal-offset, side, and roof strength tests, the Forte attained the highest possible rating of ""Good"" from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The driving experience of the 2013 Kia Forte may not be comparable to that of a luxury vehicle; however, the ride is comfortable and the car provides a comfortable ride. A quiet cabin, soft-to-touch steering wheel, and easy to adjust and comfortable seats make the driving experience quite pleasurable. The six-speed, automatic transmission shifts flawlessly, giving the driver smooth and even acceleration. The Forte averages 22/36 mpg city/highway. The SX (the top trim level) handles well at high speeds and corners, thanks to the suspension and stability control systems. Another reason the SX handles so perfectly is a sport-tuned suspension. The SX goes from zero to 60 in about 8.8 seconds. In certain states, the 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 156 horsepower and 144 lb-ft of torque, provides the LX and EX trims the Ultra-Low-Emissions Vehicle (SULEV) classification. Brakes in the SX and EX trim levels are quite powerful and provide ample braking power. This puts the Kia Forte right next to its competitors in terms of driving experience.

CHANGES FOR 2013: - Kia no longer offers the manual transmission top-tier SX trim or the fully loaded version of the EX, doing away with the 2.0L EX MT + Sunroof trim and the 2.4L SX MT trim. - Those wanting a sunroof, luxury package or the larger capacity engine will need to accept Kia’s six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifter.

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.
