Kia Forte is all-new for 2014. The 2014 Kia Forte was launched as a four-door sedan, while the 2014 Forte 5-Door hatchback joins the lineup late in the model year (late summer 2013).
As the compact car segment expands to dominate the US market, manufacturers are increasingly recalibrating their offerings to provide style, luxury and safety at a level undreamt of just a few years ago in small cars. While the size of vehicles (and their impact on the environment) shrinks in response to consumers’ changing needs, the expectation now is of elevated levels of equipment, sophistication and elegance. This explains Kia’s accelerated development cycle on its Forte model. This new fifth generation, 2014 Forte has come out just three-and-a-half years after the appearance of its predecessor. When that car emerged, the marketplace was not as thronged with comprehensively equipped, stylish offerings as it is now, so the new Forte’s timing could not be better. Kia says its new Forte was designed to satisfy both sides of the brain: the creative and the practical.
All-new, the 2014 Kia Forte sedan features swoopy and contemporary styling.
Forte EX sedan and 5-door come with a direct-injected 2.0-liter four-cylinder with variable valve timing and this engine produces 173 horsepower at 6500 rpm. Forte EX sedan and 5-door come standard with 6-speed automatic transmission, 16-inch alloy wheels, body color mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators, fog- and LED positioning lights, six-speaker stereo, UVO telematics package, rear camera display, cruise control with wheel-mounted controls, keyless entry and Flexsteer variable steering assist.
