Kia present its Forte 2010

Kia's going now full speed with its new image. This Soul model is erasing all the soulless Rio memories, and the Forte adds style memories that Spectra never had. So, the Forte unit has been for sale since August in other markets, and American sales are slated now for the spring.

The Forte 2010 is being offered on 3 diverse trims: EX, SX and LX. Forte EX and LX runs with a 2.0-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine, making 156 hp plus 144 lbs-ft torque, featuring CVVT (Continuously Variable Valve Timing) and electronic multi-port fuel injection. This SX has the upgraded inline 4-cylinder 2.4-liter engine, also having CVVT, delivering 173 hp. Kia, budget-friendly, seems to turn the corner. And its Cee’d, Euro-only has been getting great reviews for performance and style. This Forte model looks fabulous inside out if you compared to the Spectra unit it replaces.

'Kia Motors’ product line is rapidly evolving and the Forte compact sedan is another head turner' affirmed B.M. Ahn, the group CEO and president, KMA and KMMG. 'The Forte is an aggressively stylish blend of comfort and practicality – and with a host of standard features it provides the great quality and value that consumers have come to expect from Kia vehicles'.
