The 2014 Kia Forte is an affordable compact car that is available in sedan, hatchback (Forte5), and coupe (Koup) body styles. It provides plenty of options, including multiple powertrains and tech features. It also has an attractive and roomy cabin, lots of trunk space, and a user-friendly infotainment system. The front-wheel-drive 2014 Kia Forte has a 148-horsepower four-cylinder engine that produces sluggish highway acceleration. Two additional available engines provide good highway passing power: a 173-horsepower four-cylinder engine and a 201-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder. A six-speed manual transmission is standard and a six-speed automatic is available. The base Forte with an automatic transmission gets up to 24 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, which are average fuel economy estimates for the class. For day-to-day driving, the Forte has a comfortable and fairly composed ride.
