2014 Kia Forte



  • jimpimmsjimpimms Posts: 81

    The 2014 Forte5 SX 6MT was No. 1 on my list... until Kia (finally!) released the specs. EPA fuel economy is an abysmal 21/29/24, yet the same engine in the Veloster Turbo (2800 lb. vs. Forte5's 2970 lb.) is rated at 24/33/28. The final nail in the coffin is that the 173-hp 2.0L that's now standard in the Forte5 EX is also standard in the 2014 Hyundai Elantra GT, but without Kia's mandatory slushbox. Advantage: Hyundai. Ergo, the Forte5 is completely off the list, and my current 2010 Kia Forte EX 5MT is likely the last Kia I'll buy for myself (my wife loves her 2012 Soul+ and doesn't care that it too gets abysmal fuel mileage).

    Love the looks of the Forte but I'd get the Elantra GT right now and would've if the Tuscon didn't win me over. True the mileage ain't great, it drives amazingly smooth and I love the higher driving position. Hyundai/Kia is making some great products right now and are producing vehicles the public really wants.
