2011 Kia Forte

2011 Kia Forte Review

(3 Stars)  Much better, but still not the best

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The replacement for the spectra, the Forte is Kia's answer to the likes of the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, and the Mazda 3. The Forte was a new model in 2010 and Kia is touting it as a viable competitor to the Japanese imports.

The Forte Sedan offers two different options for engines. A 2.0 liter four with available 5 speed stick or 4 speed auto, producing 156 horsepower. They also offer the top line 2.4 liter four with a 6 speed transmission in either automatic or manual flavors. This larger engine produces 173 horsepower. Kia has added a new model to their Forte lineup for 2011. A five door featuring the same wheelbase as the sedan and similar dimensions in general except for when it comes to storage capacity.

The hatchback model shares its engine with the upper end sedan options. This can again be mated to a 6 speed transmission in either manual or automatic configuration. It is likely similar trim levels will be available as well, including the LX, EX, and the top of the line SX.
