2014 Kia Forte

Forte 2.0 Keeps Kia Competitive In The Compact Crop Looking back just a few years, America's compact segment was filled with bland, uninteresting cars that traded largely on low prices and high fuel economy. In today's landscape, though, things couldn't be more different – this class now boasts some of the most attractive cars on the market, not to mention features and technologies once reserved for luxury cars. Filling Kia's role in this important market, the 2014 Forte has helped make the South Korean automaker a contender among compact cars with the sedan launching earlier... Read More
