The hits keep on coming for Kia.  The 2014 Kia Forte was recognized as the best compact sedan in its class recently by journalists at some of the most respected automotive journals in print and online.

All new for 2014, the Kia Forte “truly stood out against the competition,” said Patrick Olsen, one of the editors who took part in the Compact Sedan Challenge shootout which spanned several days and pitted competitive cars against one another in a series of tests and assessments.  The Compact Sedan Challenge also took into account the opinions of drivers and current car shoppers in the real world looking for a compact sedan to call their own.

“Between its dynamic exterior styling, impressive standard features for the price and excellent ride and handling, the 2014 Forte is a well-rounded car that checks off all the boxes of the perfect, affordable compact sedan,” said Olsen.

The 2014 Kia Forte battled several other compact sedans and took the crown with its combination of a roomy, comfortable interior with lots of smart and convenient features, its fun-to-drive handling and sporty performance, and its great fuel efficiency.  It also out-styled the competition with its sharp looks.  It’s a winning combination for drivers and car shoppers alike in and around Folsom Lake and Roseville.  The 2014 Kia Forte is in a league of its own in the compact sedan segment.

“[This] recognition of the 2014 Forte as being the best compact sedan among [its] contenders clearly highlights Kia’s commitment to quality and value for our customers,” said Michael Sprague, Kia Executive Vice President of Marketing and Communications.

“The Forte is designed to bring our customers premium amenities at an affordable price,” said Sprague.  When you experience its eye-catching styling, fun and exciting performance, and plethora of convenient features and amenities in the 2014 Kia Forte here at Folsom Lake Kia you’ll love how it stands out against the competition too.
