The 2013 Kia Forte: Iowa City Residents are Already Thrilled

The upcoming 2013 Kia Forte will offer Iowa City residents a newer and improved update to the affordable compact sedan that’s quickly become a hit. The 2013 model will provide a more sculpted look that’s based on the Optima and has a more of a European look. A 5-door hatchback will also be available in this model. The 2013 Forte will be available in three trim levels: LX, EX, and SX.

The LX and EX models will be equipped with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that can generate 156 hp, while the SX model is equipped with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and is able to produce 173 hp. The LX features a standard 6-speed manual transmission, while the EX and SX come equipped with a standard 6-speed automatic transmission.

The 2013 Forte is designed with a taller roof and higher seating than its predecessor, which allows for a better view. Once again, the Forte is a Top Safety Pick as per the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. All models of the 2013 Kia Forte will come with standard Bluetooth, Sirius Satellite Radio, auxiliary audio input jacks, and steering wheel-mounted controls. No official pricing for the vehicle has yet been announced, but the amount of features that come standard in this compact sedan provides much to love. That said, we expect the 2013 Kia Forte to come to Iowa City for roughly the same price as the 2012 model.
