#66 of 67 I Love My Kia Forte Koup SX
Oct 11, 2012 (4:52 pm)
When we went looking for a new car I knew I wanted something fast, sporty, well built and lots of features for the money. I looked at the new Scion TC, Mazda 3, Hyundai Elantra, Ford Focus, and the Chevy Cruze to name a few. When I stopped at the Kia dealer there was a silver Forte SX on the lot that was loaded with everything but a nav system and I loved the look and the build quality(except for the cheap carpet). After driving the car several times and coming to a price I was willing to pay, the car was ours and so far after 8 months I am very happy with it.
It drives great, gets good mileage, is solidly built and has a great warranty. The interior is really nice, black leather w/red stitching and the outside is silver. With the SX model you get a front spoiler with built in driving lights, sunroof, all leather interior, a 2.4liter engine, low profile tiles with dark grey wheels which look really sharp. In no way does this feel like a budget brand car nor does it look like one. It was over $7k less than the comparable Focus and much better looking than the Elantra, Corolla, Scion, and especially the new Civic which wasn't even an option for me. So far we are perfectly happy with this Forte Koup except it is easy to scratch the allow wheels if you pull to close to a curb( a habit of mine). Lovin the car so far! Did I mention the car was designed by Kia Design Chief, Peter Schryer formally from Audi. The total price out the door was $21.000 and considering it had every option available I believe it was worth it . There are very few on the road and as an added plus, it isn't a car you see everyday which I like!

I was not looking for Kia Forte 2013 sticker prices...
I was looking for OTD prices paid. I am looking for a base LX Auto.
