2012 Kia Forte Car Review

http://www.autobytel.com/kia/forte/2012/ The 2012 Kia Forte is the replacement for the Kia Spectra of yesteryear. But the Forte is a big step ahead in terms of design, power, and fuel economy. The Kia Forte resides in a very competitive segment that includes the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Nissan Sentra, and Volkswagen Jetta. The 2012 Kia Forte is one of the better looking cars in the small sedan class and you can see a little bit of German style in the exterior. The base model 2012 Kia Forte costs $15,200 while the top of the line costs $19,600. There are 2 different engines available. First is a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder that produces 166 horsepower and 144 lb-ft. of torque while netting 25 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway. The second engine is a 2.4 liter 4-cylinder that produces 173 horsepower and 168 lb-ft. of torque while getting 23 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway through a 6-speed transmission. The 2012 Kia Forte is something a little more unique than the rest of the compact car segment. Plus you get a 5 year 60k mile bumper to bumper warranty and a 100k mile powertrain warranty. This is one of the best warranties currently on the market today. 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 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
