Kia’s compact car is a value champion both in four-door sedan and five-door hatchback configurations, the latter offering extra space and versatility. Build quality is impressive inside and out, and the Forte combines sharp modern looks with a clean interior. Standard power comes from a naturally aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, while a punchy turbocharged 1.6-litre unit is available on GT models for drivers seeking extra power and performance.
