According to Kia, the Forte sedan has one of the roomiest interiors in its class--as well as one of the best-equipped cabins. Kia also claims to have one of the most advanced sound systems available which includes speed-dependent volume compensation to automatically increase the volume at higher speeds and Power Bass. The Forte is also covered by one of the most extensive warranties in the business, which includes ten years or 100,000 miles on powertrain components, five years or 60,000 miles limited warranty on the entire vehicle and five years or 60,000 miles of roadside assistance.
For 2011, an all-new 5-door hatchback, called the Forte 5-Door, joins the lineup, which last year consisted of a 4-door Forte sedan and 2-door Forte Koup. Also, an all-new 6-speed automatic transmission replaces the 4- and 5-speed automatics previously offered--improving fuel economy slightly--and a new 6-speed manual replaces the 5-speed. Otherwise, the Kia Forte lineup returns for 2011 with few changes, although steering-wheel paddle-shifters are now offered on all Forte SX models.
The Forte now comes in three different body styles--Forte sedan, Forte Koup (2-door coupe) and Forte 5-door (hatchback)--as well as three different trims: LX, EX and SX. Forte sedans are the only body style to be offered in all three body styles, while Forte Koup and Forte 5-door models can be had only in EX or SX trim.
