Transmission: Automatic Color:Black 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! :)

Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.555555555555555 reviews) i like the interaction with the car that a stick shift asks for and requires. I find my brain stays more awake with this as it requires constant listening to the engine. Sometimes the car tells me what it wants, sometimes i make it do what i want. I,m glad i went back to stick shift as it feels safer, more in control than an automatic. These are all pros to me, but might be cons to someone else. It is all positive to me though and i,ll never go back to automatic. I would recommend this car for the above reasons, and slso the fairly decent mileage per gas consumption. It is quite a nice looking car. It is easy to drive once you get back to stick shift. And trickling along in traffic is fairly easy, it will do this in 1st gear and will also set off in 2nd and 3rd if needed. a con might be that it is not made in many colors in the stick shift version.

Reviews for Kia Forte

Overall Rating

4.5 out of 5 (211 reviews)

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

nice stick shift

i like the interaction with the car that a stick shift asks for and requires. I find my brain stays more awake with this as it requires constant listening to the engine. Sometimes the car tells me what it wants, sometimes i make it do what i want. I,m glad i went back to stick shift as it feels safer, more in control than an automatic. These are all pros to me, but might be cons to someone else. It is all positive to me though and i,ll never go back to automatic. I would recommend this car for the above reasons, and slso the fairly decent mileage per gas consumption. It is quite a nice looking car. It is easy to drive once you get back to stick shift. And trickling along in traffic is fairly easy, it will do this in 1st gear and will also set off in 2nd and 3rd if needed. a con might be that it is not made in many colors in the stick shift version.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: nearly 400 miles on a full tank.
  • Braking: nice and stable
  • Visibility:

Cons

  • Visibility: The front left window frame sometimes blocks my vision, but i am very short and sat right up as far as the seat will go so this might be a cause.
  • Ride and Handling: i,m told this is a noisy car, but it is not important to me. I like this car.

- Margaret Ratcliffe, 2017 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.
