Kia ForteKia continues to gain momentum with consumers and journalists, this time earning Best New Compact Sedan from Cars.com for the 2014 Forte.

The honor also puts the Kia Forte in contention for the 2014 Best of the Year award, which will be announced on January 14th, 2014.

Throughout the year, dozens of vehicles are introduced. Some are redesigned, some are entirely new, but Cars.com is dedicated to reviewing each and every vehicle to give drivers a clear picture of which cars and trucks fit their needs the best.

Kia Forte: Best Compact Sedan of 2014

Cars.com loved the Kia Forte’s affordability and efficiency, but what really put the Forte over the top is its excellent style on both the inside and outside of the car. Particularly, the reviewers loved the vehicle’s interior, which is “full of affordable creature comforts”.

Features mentioned by Cars.com include the ventilated driver’s seat, heated steering wheel, and Kia’s UVO infotainment system, which “provides seamless device and app connectivity”.

With a great price and superior fuel-economy, the Kia Forte is a great choice for drivers in Iowa City and Cedar Rapids.

Compact sedan shoppers willing to break away from traditional class leaders will find their reward in Kia’s impressive sedan.

Apparently the car is a favorite among Cars.com, as the Kia Forte also won their $20,000 Compact Sedan Challenge, which pitted the Forte against competition from Ford, Toyota, Subaru, and more.

This competition was judged by a panel of experts from Cars.com as well as a real-life compact sedan shopper who was in the market for a new vehicle.
