The interior of the new Forte sedan is breathtaking, with a dash filled with hooded analog gauges modeled after sport coupes. The cockpit is finished with high-grade materials and weighty control knobs, and the futuristic layout of the cabin will have you feeling more like a Lear Jet pilot than a driver. Even the base model, the Kia Forte LX, gives you standard keyless entry, a rear camera display, power windows, locks, and mirrors, satellite radio, air conditioning, Bluetooth® hands-free calling, and steering-wheel audio controls. New for 2016 is a premium sound system that rivals any you've ever heard. The deluxe Forte EX model adds a cooled glovebox, a rearview camera system, and an advanced GPS system, with the possibility of these great available features:
The Kia Forte LX model is equipped with a powerful little 1.8L Inline 4 engine that kicks up 145 hp and 130 pound-feet of torque; the upgraded Forte EL offers a more aggressive 2.0L engine with 173 hp and 166 pound-feet. Both have Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) and a DOHC 16-valve train, and both give you enviable fuel efficiency, but models with the 1.8L engine and automatic transmission get the best mileage - 26 mpg city, 39 mpg highway, and 31 mpg combined EPA ratings. The peppy Forte handles like a dream, responding to your every command with no delay. It is well-known for taming choppy, pot-holed pavement, and for superior handling in turns and on twisty canyon roads. Be sure to try out the three different selectable steering modes available on some 2016 Kia Forte models.
Kia Motors has always made safety its top priority, and the 2016 Kia Forte has all the latest features you want to keep you and your loved ones safe and sound. Starting with a revolutionary impact-absorbing frame that directs crash impact away from the occupants, the new Kia has built-in peace of mind. The advanced airbag system includes side seat-mounted airbags, curtain first- and second-row overhead airbags, and airbag occupancy sensors. The crowning achievement, though, is the Forte's "smart" active headrests that yield in case of impact, to keep your noggin in one piece.
Critics have been doing a double-take over the 2016 Forte's sporty appearance and playful spirit, but they shouldn't be surprised. Kia is not only one of the largest and fastest-growing carmakers in the U.S., it is also one of the most innovative. If you haven't been paying attention, Kia sedans have been thoroughly re-imagined in the last few years. Perhaps the most noticeable upgrades have been the spunky powertrain and professional handling, proving our point that the 2016 Kia Forte makes driving fun again.
