2018 Kia Forte, Racine and Milwaukee WI

2018 Kia Forte compact

It's hard to find a vehicle with a better power / price combo in the compact class than the 2018 Kia Forte. In fact, excluding from consideration the 2017 Kia Forte that was the first of this new model generation and came with similar power and price figures, this is a pretty impossible feat.

Why do we say this? The 2018 Kia Forte has a starting MSRP of less than $17,000, yet provides outsized value and performance, with 147 base HP and 164 HP in its top-line EX trim. Yet the 2018 Forte doesn't ignore the fuel economy that compact cars need to provide, with a robust and wallet-friendly 29 mpg city, 37 mpg highway.
