2012 Kia Forte SX Test Drive & Car Review

http://www.autobytel.com/kia/forte/2012/ The 2012 Kia Forte SX 5-door hatchback is the top of the line model in the Forte line-up. The base model Forte has a starting price of $15,200 with the SX model costing $19,600. The 2012 Kia Forte SX hatchback combines good looks and a more powerful engine. Practically none of the competitors to the Kia Forte offer a 5-door hatchback body style. This gives the Forte a leg up on the competition right from the start. The 2012 Kia Forte SX is the kind of car Europeans would drive. It looks good, is practical, and has plenty of cargo room and utility thanks to the hatchback design. The Forte SX model is more powerful than the standard base model. The base Forte LX is powered by a 2.0 liter engine that makes 156 horsepower and 156 lb-ft. of torque. The Forte SX sports a bigger 2.4 liter engine that puts out 173 horsepower and 168 lb-ft. of torque. The bump in power only results in a tiny loss of fuel economy with the Forte SX getting 23 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway. The 2012 Kia Forte SX gives you the opportunity to drive an economy car but yet has the versatility and look of a European 5-door. All in all Kia did a good job with the final product that is the Forte SX. See More Car Videos http://www.autobytel.com/car-videos/ Join Our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/autobytel

What I have to say about the 2012 Kia Forte: Although there is better Compact cars, the Kia Forte still remains a good one just not the best. There is a fair amount of technology and room in this car and a well appointed interior, but again just not the best. The good news is that the Kia Forte is a budget car so they are fairly cheap. Power is adequate. Although Cars like the Hyundai Elantra and Chevy Cruze are better though. Style isn't really a Strong Point either. Competitors: Hyundai Elantra, Ford Focus, Chevy Cruze, Volkswagen Jetta,

2012 Subaru Impreza vs KIA Forte paddle shifting demo
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) It used to be that paddle shifters were an exotic technology on F1 Cars or exotic super cars but not anymore. Today you get paddle shifters on the entry level 2012 Subaru Impreza and the even the new KIA Forte. But not all paddle shifters are created the same. The Subaru comes with a CVT while the KIA has a standard 6 speed transmission...so how do both of these cars drive and shift with race car inspired transmissions?
