The Forte is Kia's offering in the competitive Compact market segment. Attractive styling, pricing and feature content are what make this car standout. The Forte is available in sedan or hatchback body styles. Both feature Kia's distinctive family grille. The Forte is available in three trims; LX (sedan only), EX and SX. The LX and EX trims feature a 156-hp 2.0L four-cylinder and a six-speed manual (standard on LX), or a six-speed automatic transmission (available on LX / standard on EX). The SX features a 173-hp 2.4L four-cylinder and a standard six-speed automatic. The Forte comes nicely equipped with standard items such as; traction control, stability control, side and side curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes with brake assist, Bluetooth and a tire pressure monitoring system. Automatic climate control, leather seats, power sunroof, heated seats and a trip computer are all available depending on trim. The EX trims receive a standard telescoping steering wheel for 2012. The standard EX hatchback transmission is now a six-speed automatic. The Torrent is a five-passenger front- or all-wheel drive crossover SUV. It comes standard with features such as: fog lamps, independent suspension, and alloy wheels. A 185 hp 3.4-liter V6 mated to a five-speed automatic transmission propels the Base trim.
