A new addition to the stellar Kia line-up is the 2014 Kia Forte 5-Door. The five-door Forte features not only a short, compact rear end, but also a fully reworked front end complete with distinct tail-lights, a slim grille, and a stylish lower air intake.
The Forte SX trim packs twin exhaust tips, 18-inch aluminum wheels on 225/40 tires, a re-styled front fascia, and LED tail-lights. The SX is the version of choice for anyone whose driving style can be described as “fortissimo.” Forte certainly sounds like the perfect car for someone who drives “fortissimo.” It packs a turbocharged, direct-injected 1.6-liter turbo that produces an impressive 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The Forte SX can reach 60 mph in less than eight seconds and you have the option of a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic box transmission.
Customers who want to save even more money than the budget-friendly SX model can opt for the Forte EX. The EX model’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine still packs 173 horsepower and 154lb-ft of torque and comes with a six-speed automatic transmission, the standard engine in the Forte sedan.
Much like the Forte sedan, the hatchback Forte can come with options previously unheard of in the small car segment that include a heated steering wheel, an air cooled power driver’s seat, and heated front and rear seats. Kia also offers xenon headlights, keyless entry and start functionality, and leather seats. An impressive list of features that turn the Forte 5-door into a comfortable, stylish, and powerful companion for any motorist.
The Kia Forte 5-door will arrive in showrooms soon and there’s no better place to see one than at Westside Kia, located at 23005 Katy Freeway in Katy, Texas or call us at 281-392-5858 today!
