Kia is trying to set its foot in the current car market with clean styling, good performance, and an impressive warranty as to its main USP, and the 2011 Kia Forte shines in the affordable mid-size sedan market as it offers a great deal at a reasonable price. The Kia Forte comes in three body styles - a four-door hatchback for those who want a compact daily rider for themselves only, a sedan for better rear-seat space and comfort, and a coupe that stands out with extra styling while remaining pocket-friendly.
The Kia Forte, a mid-size sedan, is designed to offer a little bit of styling to a daily rider and that seems to be working as consumers want some looks in their average performance utility vehicle. For budget-constrained buyers, a six-speed manual is offered and with some extra bucks, a six-speed automatic is also there. Forte sedan directly competes with the experienced players namely Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Toyota Corolla, and Ford Focus.
