Review | 2012 Kia Forte Koup EX
There are two things this recent university graduate looks for in a car; getting the most value out of their vehicle and getting something that looks cool. Saving money is important to me, but I didn’t want a vehicle I would be embarrassed to drive around town. However, with my new Kia Forte Koup EX, I couldn’t ask for a better vehicle at the price I paid.
The first thing that attracted me towards the Forte was the look. The car just looks clean and smooth and there’s nothing awkward about it. I wanted to feel confident driving, and I’m very happy I can show off my car. Despite working on a tight budget, I was still able to add a sunroof, which was great because I love having it down in the summer.
The second great feature about the Forte is the space inside. I go on a lot of road trips in the summer with my friends, so I wanted it to be comfortable for four people. The Forte is very spacious, with ample legroom in the front and back seats.
Another thing about road trips is you want good gas mileage with the vehicle you’re using. I drive a lot on the highway, but pay very little on gas. My Forte has a fuel economy of about 6L/100 km on the highway. I’m thrilled to drive a car that’s so smooth and not have to be stopping all the time to fill up my tank.
Overall, I would recommend the Kia Forte to any young driver who wants the most value out of their vehicle while still being able to drive something that’s looks cool.
