It has the updated design that today’s drivers are looking for along with excellent fuel economy and powerful performance. It has the comfort and convenience you want in an elegant, fun package. It comes in four trim levels: LXEXSX and SX Luxury.

Elegance Redefined

From the signature grille to the distinctive LED positioning lights, this 2015 Kia Forte5 review offers a unique look. Some features, like the LED lights, are standard on the EX and SX models while others are available on all trim levels. Enjoy a sporty front bumper on the SX along with the Smart Key system for a push-button start. Power and heated side-view mirrors come standard on all models, while the EXSX and SX Luxury feature mirrors that fold. A power tilt and sliding sunroof is standard on the SX and SX Luxury and comes as an option on the other models. A spoiler adds a sporty touch to this hatch.

Plan for a comfortable drive with heated front seats and a tilt and telescopic steering wheel. The SX Luxury provides an amazing 10-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support and a memory function that is automatically cooled for added comfort. Even the steering wheel is heated in this trim level. Enjoy more cargo space with the 60/40 split-folding rear seat. A centre console provides convenient storage with easy access. Steering wheel controls allow you to control the settings while keeping your eyes on the road. A six-speaker stereo system and UVO infotainment system keeps you entertained. Voice-activated Bluetooth capability lets you drive safely while calling home or the office.

Smooth Performance

What is under the hood of the 2015 Kia Forte5 is just as important as what you see. With two engine options and a twin-scroll turbocharger on the SX and SX Luxury models, you have all of the power you need. Each engine comes with a six-speed manual transmission or an available six-speed Sportmatic automatic transmission for smooth handling.
