A Refreshing Re-launch for the Forte Sedan:

The 2014 Kia Forte is getting a style upgrade, and Jim Butler Kia is excited to get some on the lot!

 The new upgraded Forte compact is going to resemble its bigger brother, the Kia Optima, a little more. The new Forte will feature Kia’s recognizable “tiger shark” grille, while swept back headlamps and more rounded taillights bring a more modern, less square design. The 2014 Forte will feature available HID headlights along with LED running lights to give certain models a more luxurious feel.

The new Forte is bigger, but not by much. While it’s 1.2 inches longer, 0.2 inches wider and 0.6 inches lower than the previous generation. The design makes it look even longer, wider, and lower than it is thanks to the new models more curved belt-line, side sculpting and swooping roof.

On the inside, a dual-binnacle with center-mounted information screen replaces the three-pod gauge cluster, the steering wheel design has been made to resemble the Optima’s, and the available UVO-infotainment and navigation system comes with a large center stack-mounted screen.
