The new Forte 5-Door's sweeping headlights, 18-inch wheels and muscular body make it one of the best-looking cars in Kia's portfolio, says Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays.
The uplevel SX version borrows the Hyundai Veloster's turbocharged four-cylinder, which is good for 201 horsepower. Standard features across the lineup — a backup camera, leather-wrapped steering wheel and Bluetooth connectivity — mean it's well-equipped. Its roomy backseat and cargo area should also appeal to car shoppers. Check out the video below.
