Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.333 reviews) I would recommend this car for numerous reasons. I chose a KIA out of practicality. The gas mileage is awesome. I get at least 35mpg & even with an approximate 11 gallon tank, it never feels like I’m constantly refueling. It provides a smooth & quiet drive which is a huge plus. KIA has also came a long way in regards to the overall cosmetics of their vehicles. I love the design & overall specs of this car. For once, I feel like I’m getting what I paid for! :)

Great car that won’t break the bank

I would recommend this car for numerous reasons. I chose a KIA out of practicality. The gas mileage is awesome. I get at least 35mpg & even with an approximate 11 gallon tank, it never feels like I’m constantly refueling. It provides a smooth & quiet drive which is a huge plus. KIA has also came a long way in regards to the overall cosmetics of their vehicles. I love the design & overall specs of this car. For once, I feel like I’m getting what I paid for! :)

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: Can’t beat 35+mpg
  • Cabin Noise: I love a quiet ride & I definitely get that wish this car.
  • Value: There’s actually quite a few things I was surprised to find in this car... such as a backup cam & Bluetooth capabilities for under $16,000. ,

Awsome little car at an exceptional value!

A very nice car for the price and excellent gas mileage of 30-31 city/highway driving. The Forte has a smooth,quite ride and a roomy comfortable interior with just enough features to keep you happy and plenty of power to get you on the freeway in a hurry. I love the Bluetooth hands free calling. I cant wait to go on road trip to see how it dose on gas on just highway miles.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: very good 30-31city/highway driving without the eco boost on.
  • Value: Best value for a car in this class.
  • Cargo Space: Large trunk and good leg room in the back seat and roomy interior you feel like you are in a larger car.
