Transmission: Manual 6 Speed Color:Blue Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.666666666666667 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! :)

Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) I bought my Kia Forte lxs on Halloween and it’s my greatest treat in 2020!! 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.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) The 6 Speed manual transmission just sucks, it takes all the fun out of driving a manual transmission car. It's a great little car, gets great gas mileage, and would be a blast to drive if it were an automatic, or had a normal 5 speed transmission. Kia really dropped the ball with the 6 speed. I know they did it to improve the gas mileage, but they took all the fun out of driving.

Reviews for Kia Forte

Overall Rating

4.4 out of 5 (76 reviews)

Great Car, Don't buy the 6 Speed Manual

The 6 Speed manual transmission just sucks, it takes all the fun out of driving a manual transmission car. It's a great little car, gets great gas mileage, and would be a blast to drive if it were an automatic, or had a normal 5 speed transmission. Kia really dropped the ball with the 6 speed. I know they did it to improve the gas mileage, but they took all the fun out of driving.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: It gets great gas mileage.
  • Power: It has a lot of power.
  • Ride and Handling: It rides really nice and smooth

Cons

  • Visibility: It is a little low so its hard to see over other vehicles.

- David Stransky, 2016 Kia Forte

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. ,

Pros

  • Ride and Handling: It’s super smooth and easy to handle.
  • Fuel Economy: It’s GREAT on gas!!
  • Styling: It’s a very nice looking vehicle!

Cons

  • Cargo Space: No spare tire.
