Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (3.6666666666666665 reviews) The apple play is seamless and makes travel so much safer! I get my texts read to me and I can answer calls on the touch screen or with the button on the wheel. The ride is smooth and comfortable. It's very roomy for a small car. Even tall people can sit in the back with no problem. The only objection is, there are no cup holders except for what is in the doors in the back seat. That's my only complaint. I love how in control I feel when I drive this car. The feel and response is amazing! Love love love it.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Blue Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (0 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! :)

I LOVE the way it handles as well as how good it is on gas!! I also like the lane assist, sport mode and Apple play features. Oh and the touch screen message center!! Did I mention how nice the alloy rims are?!? Over all it’s a cute little total package of a car. My only con is that I have to purchase my own spare tire. I ordered a factory original rim and tire so that I can have a full size spare. I think ALL vehicles should come with one. But other than that, I love my little Kiia - I named her Rosie.

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. ,

- Holly Moore, 2015 Kia Forte

This car is my Forte!

The apple play is seamless and makes travel so much safer! I get my texts read to me and I can answer calls on the touch screen or with the button on the wheel. The ride is smooth and comfortable. It's very roomy for a small car. Even tall people can sit in the back with no problem. The only objection is, there are no cup holders except for what is in the doors in the back seat. That's my only complaint. I love how in control I feel when I drive this car. The feel and response is amazing! Love love love it.

Pros

  • Ride and Handling: Very smooth and responsive.
  • Cabin Noise: Quiet in the cabin. If you're on an uneven/noisy road, you can make the radio volume adjust to the conditions (ie speed)
  • Technology and Entertainment: Apple play. Wonderful. So glad it has this feature.

Cons

  • Cargo Space: There are only 2 cup holders in the back for 20 oz water bottles, and they are in the doors.

Pros

  • Ride and Handling: It’s super smooth and easy to handle.
  • Fuel Economy: It’s GREAT on gas!!
