What Makes the 2021 Kia Forte a Great Car for You

2021 Kia Forte

The 2021 Kia Forte is a compact sedan with all of the features you want in your next car and more for a price that is lower than what you might have expected.

The Forte gives you more for your money

The 2021 Kia Forte is one of the leading value propositions in the compact car market due to its extensive equipment list and its very restrained price. The base model of the Forte carries an MSRP of only $17,895, which makes it the most affordable vehicle in its segment. Despite this, the Forte is very well equipped, with many features not found on the competing model’s base trim levels. For example, the Forte LX comes standard with front heated seats and a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Moving upwards in the Forte lineup adds many luxurious features while keeping the price lower than comparably equipped entries from other companies, like the heated rear seats and steering wheel. The top trim GT Limited can also be fitted with some characteristics that are not available at any price from most of the competition, such as the ventilated front seats.

Affordable to own

The 2021 Kia Forte is not only cheap to buy, it is also cheap to own. Indeed, the 2.0L engine that powers most models of the Forte is very fuel efficient, so much so that it is at the top of its class in terms of fuel economy, with a consumption as low as 5.9L/100km on the highway and 7.8L/100km in the city. This is a result of the engine’s design, as well as the IVT transmission that is standard on all but the base model and the GT top trims. This transmission is tuned to extract all of the power from the engine while remaining very efficient at any speed. Combine this great economy with the largest fuel tank of its class and the Forte needs very few refuelling stops along the way.
