Add The Kia Forte To Your Shopping List, Says Consumer Reports

The 2017 Kia Forte belongs to a very competitive vehicle segment — and more than holds its own, according to independent reviews.

Consumer Reports drove the Forte EX and highlighted this four-door car’s seat comfort, visibility, convenient storage, modern look, and simple-to-use technology as key advantages. Consumer Reports concluded that the Forte “is a solid competitor” and its “better than average predicted reliability being the icing on the cake.”

A quick look at the Kia Forte and you’ll immediately notice that it is a compact car that looks more substantial and attractive than many of our its counterparts in this vehicle class. This is not some boring sedan.

“When you’re at the lower end of the price scale, exterior design often gets tossed out the window at highway speeds. Not so with the Kia Forte with its proportionately correct design that makes sedans twice as expensive look bland by comparison,” said the Globe and Mail.

As with every Kia, the Forte really stands out for the features included in each variant for the price. For example, the Forte EX includes 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, rearview camera, premium cloth seats, push-button start with proximity key and many more options for $21,995.

And this month, Castlegar Kia is offering additional benefits that make the Kia Forte even more attractive. The Forte is available with a $4,000 price adjustment. Another option is to finance the Kia Forte at 0% for 84 months along with a $1,500 price reduction. Or, you can even lease the Kia Forte at 0%.

In short, the Kia Forte kicks butt, while going very easy on your wallet. Add to that its five-year or 100,000 km warranty when most other manufacturers are offering just three years or 60,000 km of coverage, and the Kia Forte truly does belong on your shopping list.
