Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) I am a huge fan of the “hot hatch”. I have owned a GTI, a Focus ST, and now the Forte5 SX. So far, I am very impressed with this little car and the 1.6 turbo. It’s more fuel efficient than its rated , supposed to be 21 city 29 highway. Generally with mixed driving I average over 30. And on long distance trips I have averaged over 35 mpg! It’s more comfortable than I expected, given any hot hatch will have tight suspension. It is very quick especially with the 6spd. And in my humble opinion looks great. Probably the coolest part of this car is that you never see them. They are hard to find, especially with a manual transmission, and everybody asks me what it is. Bottom line... I love this car.

Overall Rating

5.0 out of 5 (7 reviews)

A real treat for an old man!

This black looks like a stretch limo that shrunk. So classy yet very nimble, good has millage, luxurious and loaded with extras like cooled leather seats. My salesman , Ronald was so good that buying a used cat was actually fun.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: I can drive with impunity.
  • Cargo Space: I needed cargo space in a small but nimble vehicle.
  • Styling: It looks better than much more expensive cars.

Cons

  • Power:

- Ed Adams, 2014 Kia Forte5

Very Reliable

The car overall is great. Its spacious, the gas mileage is awesome, and it comes with convenient features for a great price. If you’re looking to get your moneys worth this car is worth it!

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: Great mileage

Cons

  • Power: Accelration may be a little slow but once it warms up you’re good to go!

2016 Forte5 SX 6spd

I am a huge fan of the “hot hatch”. I have owned a GTI, a Focus ST, and now the Forte5 SX. So far, I am very impressed with this little car and the 1.6 turbo. It’s more fuel efficient than its rated , supposed to be 21 city 29 highway. Generally with mixed driving I average over 30. And on long distance trips I have averaged over 35 mpg! It’s more comfortable than I expected, given any hot hatch will have tight suspension. It is very quick especially with the 6spd. And in my humble opinion looks great. Probably the coolest part of this car is that you never see them. They are hard to find, especially with a manual transmission, and everybody asks me what it is. Bottom line... I love this car.

Pros

  • Power: 1.6 turbo delivers excellent torque with little turbo lag.
  • Value: Can’t beat what you get for the price. Kudos to Kia, excellent value
  • Cargo Space: I love a hatch for the space, put the back seats down in this car and you have tons of space. I drove long distance with my wife and 2 children in this car, and fit all of our bags no problem . Not to mention averaged 35 mpg.

Cons

  • Technology and Entertainment: The speakers and deck are pretty bad, I like quality sound. This is one of my few complaints.
  • Cabin Noise: Honestly it’s not that bad , but not as quiet as a GTI, about the same as the focus ST.
