2015 Kia Forte Review

Find a Used Kia Forte in your area!

Browse 890 Kia Forte listings nationwide.

The Forte is a compact sedan that's one size down from the Kia Optima and one up from the Kia Rio. It competes in a crowded segment, against some very established nameplates like the Toyota Corolla, Honda Accord, Nissan Sentra, Hyundai Elantra, Volkswagen Jetta and Ford Focus, as well as the relatively new Chevrolet Cruze and Dodge Dart. The Kia stands out for offering a little more equipment for the same price--as well as some standout comfort options, such as a heated steering wheel and cooled driver's seat. There's also a choice between two engines, a fuel-efficient 1.8L and the stronger 2.0L so every buyer can find the right combination of power and fuel economy.
