The 2016 Kia Forte exemplifies a car that can satisfy a variety of different needs. Here’s a car in any of the three iterations – sedan, hatchback or coupe – that offers a fair price, peppy acceleration, generous standard features and a comfortable cabin with quality materials.
Every Forte comes standard with antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front side airbags and side curtain airbags. The rearview camera is optional on LX and standard on EX. The optional UVO eServices telematics bundle includes roadside assistance, emergency crash notification and secondary driver monitoring features that include notifications when curfew, vehicle speed and vehicle location limits are exceeded. Government crash tests of the 2016 Kia Forte sedan earned a five-star rating (out of five), and four stars for overall frontal-impact protection. Also, five stars was earned for overall side-impact protection.
Boasting a handsome cabin furnished with quality materials in the high trim levels (EX and SX), the Forte is more than just an economy car stuffed with devices. Its touchscreen interface, and logically positioned virtual buttons, is one of the sophisticated examples of this technology.
In addition to improved technology, the sedan’s seat comfort front and rear is spacious, even 6-foot adults should be comfortable sitting in the back. There is very generous cargo capacity for the sedan, with a trunk capacity of 14.9 cubic feet, while the Forte 5 hatchback boasts 23.2 cubic feet with the rear seat up. The KOUP provides 13.3 cubic feet of trunk space, which is a strong amount for a compact coupe.
The 2.0-liter and 173-hp four-cylinder in the 2016 Kia Forte EX is quicker than the norm. The automatic transmission provides a smooth shift and responsive with downshifts during typical passing and merging situations. SX versions contain a slick-shifting six-speed manual to pleasantly operate the engine’s power. This overall transforms the Kia into a genuinely speedy little car.
