Forte’s sleek and spacious design earns top honors among its competitors
IRVINE, Calif. – The all-new 2014 Kia Forte was recently named by Cars.com as the best compact sedan in its league. The multi-day Compact Sedan Challenge brings together experts from Cars.com, USA Today and MotorWeek to conduct a series of tests on a competitive set of vehicles and combines their professional assessments with the real-world opinions of car shoppers currently in the market for a compact sedan.
“The Forte truly stood out against the competition,” said Patrick Olsen, Cars.com’s Editor-in-Chief. “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.”
This years’ competition included the 2014 Ford Focus, 2013 Honda Civic, 2013 Hyundai Elantra, 2013 Subaru Impreza, 2013 Nissan Sentra and 2014 Toyota Corolla. The Kia Forte bested all the rest with its roominess, performance and premium amenities. The Compact Sedan Challenge judges cars based on a series of criteria, including fuel economy, comfort, styling and drivability.
“The Forte is designed to bring our customers premium amenities at an affordable price,” said Michael Sprague, executive vice president of marketing & communications, KMA. “Cars.com’s recognition of the 2014 Forte as being the best compact sedan among these worthy contenders clearly highlights Kia’s commitment to quality and value for our customers.”
With its sleek European-inspired styling, the Kia Forte was designed to offer more room, more performance and more amenities to an ever growing segment of compact sedan consumers.
Kia: One of the World’s Fastest Moving Global Automotive Brands
Kia Motors America is one of only three auto brands to increase U.S. sales in each of the past four years, and in 2012 the company surpassed the 500,000 unit mark for the first time. With a full line of fun-to-drive cars and CUVs, Kia is advancing value to new levels of sophistication by combining European-influenced styling – under the guidance of chief design officer Peter Schreyer – with cutting-edge technologies, premium amenities, affordable pricing and one of the lowest costs of ownership in the industry. Kia recently moved up in the exclusive ranking of Interbrand’s “Top 100 Best Global Brands” after joining the list for the first time last year, and is poised to continue its momentum with seven all-new or significantly redesigned vehicles scheduled to arrive in showrooms in 2013. Over the past decade Kia Motors has invested more than $1.4 billion in the U.S., including the company’s first U.S. assembly plant in West Point, Georgia – Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia – which is responsible for the creation of more than 14,000 plant and supplier jobs. The success of the U.S.-built Optima and Sorento in two of the industry’s largest segments has fueled Kia’s rapid growth and is complemented by Kia’s comprehensive lineup which includes the Cadenza flagship sedan, Soul urban passenger vehicle, Sportage compact CUV, Optima Hybrid, the Forte sedan, Forte5, and Forte Koup compacts, Rio and Rio 5-door sub-compacts and the Sedona minivan.
