Kia Forte

The 2016 Kia Forte is a subcompact car that has the potential to take Kia to the next level in terms of compact sedans. As Kia has a legendary catalogue of vehicles, their weakness was often found in their compact sedans. This is not the case for the 2016 Kia Forte as the car has everything from unique styling and a powerful engine to modern technology and safety features. Those living in East Syracuse, NY, Kia of East Syracuse is a highly popular dealership that offers their Kia vehicles at extremely affordable rates.


The all-new 2016 Kia Forte is a daring and bold statement for Kia in the Compact sedan segment. This Forte is truly stunning with features such as a front bumper that holds projector beam headlights and optional automatic fog lights. Supporting the sedan on its sides are four sporty 15” wheels that compliment two side mirrors with power-folding and power-heated features. These side mirrors even come with optional turn signal indicators for added visibility on the road. On the rear of the Forte is a tailgate release that opens to automatically to provide cargo storage.

The 2016 Kia Forte LX actually much bigger inside than it looks outside. The cabin of the sedan is ideal for 5 passengers who comfortably fit with a lot of luxury and comfort. These individuals get to sit on leather front and rear seats with power and manual adjustable features. Additionally, these seats even have ergonomic lumbar support to provide added comfort especially on long road trips.


The 2016 Kia Forte has an engine that offers speed and fuel economy. It runs on a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine that allows the vehicle to run on 145 horsepower with 130 pound feet of torque. It is also able to save substantially on fuel consumption thanks to its 6-speed manual transmission that has been designed with variable valve timing.


The 2016 Forte is a sedan that ensures total passenger safety and security with its amazing safety system that loads the vehicle with all the essential safety features available today. Outside, the pickup has a perimeter theft alarm system that efficiently monitors all external movement.
