What I love about the 2015 KIA Forte is its five doors. Perfectly suited for recreational lifestyle or if you just need room for work or play, the hatchback provides excellent versatility. What makes this car a number one seller, is that it combines in a long list of standard equipment with incredible value starting at just $23,980.

The Forte comes in a four-door sedan; two-door coupe. It has three trim levels: The "LX" with a 1.8-liter engine, starting at just $20,980. Its equipment is often found on higher trim levels. Like standard AC power equipment, heated wipers, body colored mirrors and door handles. The next trim level is the sporty "EX" which has a more powerful 2.0-liter engine.

Let's move to the SX model which comes with the highest training equipment level. In addition to the long list of standard equipment, like navigation, sunroof and duo climate control, it comes standard with the all-new 1.6-liter, 201 hp (149 kW) turbocharged four-cylinder engine. A choice of either six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, with paddle shift on the steering wheel.

When you combine KIA's aggressive rebates and finance programs with this long list of standrat equipment, you won't be disappointed. The EX comes with 2-liter 173 hp (129 kW) gas direct injection engine with an automatic transmission that provides superior handling. Inside the cabin we immediately notice a sophisticated leather-wrapped steering wheel with mounted controls, including cruise control and hands-free Bluetooth, rear center console in 60/40 rear back seat and auto-dimming rear view mirror. KIA has also installed an UVO infotainment system, as well as rear view backup camera which helps you maneuver the car with an ease in reverse gear.

As for as the exterior the Forte has automatic headlights.The hatchback versatility, it comes with an optional sunroof, as well as the famous five-year "worry free" comprehensive warranty that basically covers everything on the vehicle.17-inch alloy wheels, outside chrome door handles and molding.

KIA never compromises on safety. The Forte comes with ADS brakes, Hill Assist Control, Electronic Stability and Traction Control and available rear view camera on "EX" and "SX" trims.The trunk is really spacious with a large cargo friendly rear hatch.

The line between luxury, practicality and fun is really thin in the 2015 KIA Forte. If you are looking for a fast, luxurious and stylish car the Forte is your best bet.
