Benefits of Driving a 2014 Kia Forte Koup Coupe

The Forte is a compact sedan that's one size down from the Kia Optima and one up from the Kia Rio. It competes in a crowded segment, against some very established nameplates like the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Nissan Sentra, Hyundai Elantra, Volkswagen Jetta and Ford Focus, as well as the relatively recent Chevrolet Cruze and Dodge Dart. The Kia stands out for offering a little more equipment for the same price--as well as some standout comfort options, such as a heated steering wheel and cooled driver's seat. There's also a choice between two engines, a fuel-efficient 1.8L and the stronger 2.0L so every buyer can find the right combination of power and fuel economy.

What's new for 2014?

The Kia Forte has been completely redesigned for 2014, with longer, wider and lower proportions, improved performance and fuel economy, a more refined ride and more comfortable interior and more technology and connectivity features. Most notably, perhaps, it adopts Kia's more distinct, European-influenced design language that has helped propel the brand's sales in recent years.

Model Strengths

  • Stylish new exterior
  • choice of powertrains
  • fuel-efficiency
  • great list of standard equipment
  • standout comfort and convenience options

Model Review

The 2014 Kia Forte is offered in LX and EX models, and only as a sedan in redesigned form. The LX is powered by a 148-horsepower 4-cylinder engine, while the EX model gets a special 2.0L direct-injected four that makes 173 hp and 154 pound-feet of torque. Both engines include continuously variable valve timing, which helps provide responsiveness over a wide range while enhancing fuel economy. LX models offer a choice between a 6-speed manual gearbox and a 6-speed automatic transmission, while EX models only come with the automatic.

Kia Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

120-months/100,000-mile Powertrain warranty from original in-service date
Age/Mileage Eligibility up to 5 model years old w/ less than 60,000 miles
Lease Term Certified No
Point Inspection 150
Return/Exchange Program No
Roadside Assistance 10-Year/Unlimited Mileage from In-Service Date
Transferrable Warranty Yes
Warranty Deductible $50
