[cc] 2010 Mazda 3i × 2010 Kia Forte SX Review - Lake Houston, United States

Adam Barrera at highmileage.org evaluates the Mazda 3i and Kia Forte SX compact sedans, pits them head-to-head, and places them in the context of their competition. Let me know what you think -- start a conversation with me on Twitter. http://twitter.com/highmileage The first Mazda3 was a Great Little Car! It would've been the best among its peers... if it hadn't trailed the Ford Focus by 8 miles per gallon. Time has passed, and the 3 has evolved... but it faces new competition. The Kia Forte is the first Korean compact car engineered to be at the top of shoppers' lists... instead of a second-tier alternative. Tedious automotive clichés mean that some compact car buyers will bypass these cars altogether on their way to Honda and Toyota showrooms. What a bummer. The Forte feels as solidly built as any Civic or Corolla, and it's backed by a longer warranty. Inside the Forte, there are no positive or negative surprises just a well-crafted and inoffensively designed interior with slightly more passenger room and cargo volume than its main competition. The new Mazda3's interior lies on the same plane. The last-generation 3's deep, dramatic gauge lighting is gone. Also gone is the eye-catching contrast-check upholstery that used to set this car apart in the segment. In the New 3, drivers sit in a vast expanse of unaccented cloth. Thankfully, the head unit's reactive LEDs have been retained. They're the only design element that saves the 3's interior from monotony. On the road, both vehicles bring memories of a better time when '90s compacts were light and fun to toss. Kia has never built a vehicle as dialed in as the Forte. Its above-average reflexes seem held back only by its tires. But where the Kia surprises, the Mazda thrills. At Mazda, Zoom-Zoom isn't a marketing slogan it's an engineering guideline. Not a single bushing drowns out the base 3's connection to the road. The 3 is still *so* fun to drive, but its interior has become marginalized and severe. Without an interior edge, the only parameter that makes the Mazda3 more desirable than the Kia Forte is the way that it drives. If Kia sharpened the Forte's steering and suspension, Mazda could have a problem. But for now, the Mazda delivers a complete package: competitive fuel economy, declarative sheetmetal, and soulful road feel. Both cars are more engaging than the Toyota Corolla and more rationally priced than the Honda Civic.

2010 KIA Forte SX review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Give us 3-minutes and we'll give you the scoop, In the past some Korean car manufactures have blatantly copied much more expensive competitors like the Mercedes Benz or Jaguar, but the Forte only takes the better design cues from the Civic and builds on them with a unique, original, and dare I say a sexy spin on the standard Civic.

2015 Kia K900 Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/kia/k900/2015/?id=32972 Kia has been building cars for over 20 years now. And during that time the brand has grown their line-up of cars. What started as extremely affordable econo-boxes has bloomed into mid-sized cars offered at a great value; and now we have the K900 which pushes the perception of what a luxury car can be. The 2015 Kia K900 has a base price of $59,500. If Kia is going to be selling a luxury car, then said car must look the part. On the outside the K900 has a stylish signature grille, adaptive front projector headlights, LED daytime running lights, and 19-inch wheels. Out back the K900 looks like a BMW. It is hard to sell a luxury car to luxury car buyers without a potent power plant under the hood. The 2015 Kia K900 is powered by Hyundai's TAO 5.0 liter V-8 GDI engine that makes 420 horsepower and 376 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is 15 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway. On the inside, Kia has tried really hard to get the luxury part right. The seats are incredibly comfortable and covered in soft Nappa leather. All the touch points, materials, and dash layout all give the K900 a very upscale feel and look which is important in order to get the buyers looking for an Audi or Lexus. Finally Kia offers a level of technology that is not readily available at this price point which sets the car apart from the rest of the luxury car player. Kia says the buyer of the K900 is looking for style, technology, luxury, and value. Brand perception is up and hopefully the K900 can make a positive impact for Kia.

2012 Audi A3 TDI vs KIA Forte SX Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Audi A3 TDI has been around for a half a dozen years and in that time many small 5 door cars have tried to copy the Audi's blend of sporty driving fun and luxurious appointments. One of those cars is the new KIA Forte SX. It looks, drives and even has many of the same features of the Audi. Check out this review as we mashup the KIA Forte with the Audi A3 TDI.





2014 Kia Forte EX Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF When Kia started selling the '94 Sephia in America, nobody was worried. Not the American car companies still adjusting to the market share lost to the Japanese competition, and not the Japanese who used cheap and reliable cars to take the market share in the first place. The laissez-faire attitude to the Korean upstart was understandable, the Sephia was a truly horrible car. In 1997 Kia filed for bankruptcy protection and the big boys patted themselves on their back for not worrying about the Asian upstart. When another unremarkable Korean company purchased 51% of Kia, nobody cared. They should have. Through a convoluted set of financial arrangements, Hyundai and Kia are 32.8% joined at the hip and the result is greater than the sum of its parts. The reason seems to be "internal" competition with rumors of Kia/Hyundai in-fighting constantly swirling. Apparently each believes that they should be king of the hill. This means we can't talk about the 2014 Forte without talking about the Hyundai Elantra. This is not a case of Chevy/Buick/Oldsmobile badge engineering. Kia and Hyundai have access to the same platform, engine and other parts bins but they operate on their own development cycles. What that means to you is: these brothers from a different mother exist in different generations. The 2006-2010 Elantra was the cousin to the 2009-2013 Forte meaning the Kia was a "generation behind". That's changed for 2014 with the Forte being the new kid on the block and while the related Elantra won't land until the 2015 model year at the soonest. I prefer to think of myself as "financially frugal" but at home that's spelled c h e a p. It's not that I want the cheapest car or the most economical car, I want the best deal. I can't help it, the word "bargain" ignites a fire in my loins. The new 2014 Forte is that kind of bargain. Sure, it's not as roomy as the Sentra, not as quiet as a Cruze, not as dynamic as a Focus and lacks the Civic's reputation, but this new Forte is well priced, packed with features you won't find on the competition, and I was unable to find a single thing to dislike. Kia's compact car transformation from the Sephia, a car I wouldn't make my worst enemy live with, to a car that I would recommend to friends (and have) has taken only 20 years. To copy a line, that makes Kia the fastest social climber since Cinderella. Since I care more about the driving experience and gadget list than fuel economy, this shoe fits.
