Redesigned for 2014, the Kia Forte has a fresh-faced look and an impressive list of features.

What's New for 2014

Everything—it’s a brand new look for the Forte.

Choosing Your Kia Forte

The main decision for Forte buyers is between two distinct trim levels: the entry-level LX and upscale EX. The two not only differ in standard and optional equipment, they have different engines and transmissions.

LX

The base LX comes with a 148-horsepower 1.8-liter engine that's paired to standard six-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic transmission. Its list of standard features includes basics like air conditioning, power windows, power heated outside mirrors, satellite radio, Bluetooth and steering wheel-mounted audio controls.

The options list isn't much more lavish—buyers can add amenities like cruise control and remote keyless entry at extra cost.

EX

The EX adds around $3,600 to the Forte's retail price but delivers a dramatically different experience. Look for standard features like a 173-horsepower 2-liter four-cylinder engine, a six-speed automatic transmission, 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control and a rear backup camera.

Option packages, meanwhile, can transform the EX into a luxurious economy car:

  • Premium Package: It isn't cheap at $2,600, but adds features like a sunroof, leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, a ventilated driver's seat with 10-way adjustment, a heated steering wheel, push-button start and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
  • Technology Package: This requires the Premium Package and adds another $2,300 to the cost of a Forte. It includes HID headlights, LED taillights, navigation, and dual-zone automatic climate control with rear vents.

CarsDirect Tip

Unless you're on a strict budget, we suggest the EX. Be careful about option packages, though—a fully-loaded Forte has a price that puts it into competition with more accomplished cars.
