Kia Forte

Price $21,095 – $32,545
Fuel consumption 6.0 – 8.9 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 78%(view ratings)
The Kia Forte offers two body styles, seven trim levels and a pair of engine options. Base models get a naturally aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder producing 147 horsepower and a CVT, while others benefit from a turbocharged 1.6-litre mill delivering 201 horsepower with the help of a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. For some reason, the Forte sedan doesn’t offer a hybrid variant like the Hyundai Elantra. The Forte5 hatchback stands out from the competition with class-leading cargo space.
