The 2015 Kia Forte is a great little car, offering 2 body styles, and features you wouldn’t expect in an affordable compact. If you are in New York City, come on over to Plaza Kia in Brooklyn and take one for a test drive today. We’re easy to get to from most places in the city, but especially Queens and Brooklyn.
The 2015 Chevy Cruze also offers lots for your money but compared head to head the Kia just gives you more.
Compact economy cars tend to be underpowered, as part of their efforts to get the best fuel economy possible. The Kia Forte, however, out powers the Chevrolet Cruze with 145 horsepower, and 130 lb-ft of torque, that’s an extra 7 horses and 5 lb-ft of torque with their base 1.8-liter motors. Base Fortes with the manual transmission get 1 more highway mpg than the Cruze too, and comparing automatics Forte gets 4 more mpg in the city or highway test.
Both of these cars offer practical, traditional 4 door sedans with a small trunk. Only Kia gives you the Forte 5 with the added practicality and cargo space of a 4 door hatchback though. If you want a sportier car, or prefer larger door openings because you are taller, only Kia offers a 2 door coupe style, called Forte Koup.
One of the most money-saving features of any economy car is not having to pay to get it fixed. The Cruze only offers bumper to bumper coverage for 3 years and 36k miles, and powertrain coverage runs out at 5 years and 60lk miles. The Forte is fully covered for a full 5 years, or 60k miles, and the powertrain for an additional 5 years, and a full 100k miles.
Come see the 2015 Kia Forte in all its styles: Sedan, Koup, and Forte 5. Plaza Kia in Brooklyn has all 3 and we’re an easy trip from anywhere in New York City.View Inventory
