Affordability and a 10-year powertrain warranty are selling points for any Kia, but buyers of the Forte sedan (or five-door Forte5) also will enjoy surprising space and a quality interior. A 148-hp 1.8-liter four-cylinder with a six-speed manual serves as the base setup; a six-speed automatic is optional. Uplevel trims get a perky 173-hp 2.0-liter four paired to a six-speed automatic. The Forte5 is a hot-hatch, with a 201-hp turbo 1.6-liter four and a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic.
