KIA Forte is Amazing Value
If you haven't looked at a KIA Forte recently, you may be in for a surprise. The KIA Forte is an amazing value.
The KIA Forte EX boasts more standard features than any other subcompact on the market. And we're not even talking about the higher trim models like the EX Premium or GT. We're talking luxuries like wireless phone charger, heated sideview mirrors with signal repeaters, heated steering wheel, and heated front seats included in the EX, which is just one up from the base model. It includes all that, plus:
- rear-view camera
- alloy wheels
- Apple Carplay and Android Auto
- remote keyless entry
- cruise control
- 6-speaker audio
- 8" display audio
CARGO and PASSENGER CAPACITY
The KIA Forte leads the subcompact car segment with 434 litres of cargo capacity. The Toyota Corolla brings up the rear with 371 litres, and the Volkswagon Golf is a close neighbour at 380 litres.
The KIA Forte also keeps you safe:
- Hill Assist Control
- Lane Keep Assist
- Driver Attention Alert System
- Forward Collision Avoidance Assist
- Blind Spot Detection System
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Every KIA, including the Forte, comes with a 5-year 100,000 km warranty. Compare this to the rest of manufacturers in Canada, the others only offer a 3- or 4-year warranty. To match that out of pocket, it’s an expense of about $600 per year depending on the manufacturer.
