New Forte Owner

by Kellyann from Shawnee KS | November 19, 2019

I owned a previous 2015 Forte and just purchased a 2019. Big points for the restyling of this car. It looks much more sleek, yet from the front it’s definitely edgier. I’ve only had it a few days but it has more pep as well. Happy so far!

In 45 Years - The best Auto I've Owned

by Bob F from Deming, New Mexico | November 13, 2019

I've owned many makes and models of autos since 1975 - Domestic and foreign - people may scoff when I say with experience: Kia has been THE best automobile I've ever owned and driven. I owned a '10 Kia Soul bought new in early '09 - for 10 straight years without any problems - regular maintenance, 1 car battery, and one set of tires - in 10 years - that's it. Now after 6 months of driving a 2019 Kia Forte, I am pleasantly surprised again. The car salesperson who sold me it said I'd never experience a finer car, and a better deal. I thought "yeah, he's wants to make a sale". But - he was dead right. I am very happy with this auto.

Great car! I might buy this after renting this

by AlecB from New York, New York | November 10, 2019

Although the car is a rental until my car gets repaired, I was given this by the insurance company. I am BLOWN away by this vehicle. It is a little bit smaller than my 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid, BUT the interior is pretty spacious. After driving this car for two weeks (mixed city and driving), I am averaging 36MPG. That is incredible since it’s 4 less than my hybrid. The drawback of the Kia is that it has slower acceleration after 40ish MPH. My hybrid was packing a punch still after those speeds. But hey, the Kia is still amazing for the MPG. This has rear cross traffic alert which is similar to my mother’s new Lexus RX. ALSO this car constantly tries to keep you in your lane — pretty cool. It is amazing that a cheap car like this has this technology. My mother’s Lexus iš terrible compared to this vehicle with the lane keep assist. The Lexus will think you’re going out of the lane when you’re not and won’t constantly keep you centered like this Kia. The only bad side of this car is that the interior isn’t as high quality as my Toyota, but the technology and looks kind of trumps the bad of it. OH and the speakers can be better. They sound great when the volume is low to medium, but when you raise the volume it starts to get distorted I still can’t believe this gets 36MPG compared to my hybrid which is 40mpg. I am seriously considering on trading in my Toyota for this car after I get it back from the body shop!
