The Kia Forte has been a popular vehicle among American consumers since its introduction in 2010. But it’s important for you to have your own reasons for getting behind the wheel of this compact sedan or hatchback.

Below are some reasons why you should consider buying a Kia Forte.


With an MSRP of just $16,490, the Kia Forte’s price point is at the low end of what you can expect to pay for a car of comparable features.


Kia’s are not always known for their spacious interiors, but that’s where the Forte is a bit of an outlier. With 97 cubic feet of passenger volume and 14.9 cubic feet of trunk space in the sedan, the Forte is surprisingly roomy.

Standard Features

The “standard” features of the 2017 Kia Forte are anything but. Even the base trim comes loaded with Bluetooth, satellite radio, a USB port, heated mirrors and more.

Upgrade Options

The versatility of the Forte is evident in the available upgrade options that include keyless entry and ignition, blind-spot monitoring, driver memory, a sunroof, navigation with voice controls, heated seats and so much more.

Fuel Economy  

Everyone loves good gas mileage, and at 29 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway, what’s not to love?


Nothing is more important than safety, and the Forte comes up big in this department with superb ratings in government crash tests. Front side and side curtain airbags come standard as does traction and stability control.  


Technology has reached high demand among today’s consumers and the Forte grants those wishes with a seven-inch touchscreen display and an optional rearview camera and UVO eServices telematics bundle.  


Kia went above and beyond with the Forte’s warranty, offering a five-year, 60,000-mile base warranty along with a 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
