Details About the Hot New 2015 Kia Forte Models

The 2015 model year will be another great one for the Kia Forte.

Three models of the award-winning Forte will carry over for 2015: the Forte Sedan, the Forte Koup and the Forte5. With European-inspired design and an abundance of quality features, the 2015 Forte will continue to be a hit.

The 2015 Forte Sedan will be available in LX and EX models and offers a choice of an efficient 1.8-liter engine or a more powerful 2.0-liter engine. Fans will enjoy many standard and optional features, including standard with steering wheel-mounted audio controls, SiriusXM, power windows, keyless entry, 16-inch alloy wheels, UVO eServices Telematics, heated front and rear seats and a rear camera display and many more options -- many of which are not typically seen in the compact sedan segment.

The 2015 Forte Koup will be a sporty, fun-to-drive car with impressive features. The EX comes equipped with a 2.0-liter GDI four-cylinder engine, and the SX comes standard with a powerful 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 201 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. Both models come standard with a 6-speed manual transmission with an available 6-speed automatic featuring steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. 16-inch alloy wheels, SiriusXM, power windows, heated seats, heated steering wheel, push-button start and more all are available to fans on both versions of the Koup.

Like its Forte siblings, the 2015 Forte5 continues to deliver value and fun. The hatchback comes in two trim levels, with the EX’s 2.0-liter GDI four-cylinder engine and the SX’s powerful 1.6-liter GDI turbocharged four-cylinder engine available. The SX comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission and offers an available 6-speed automatic featuring steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The Forte5's amenities are impressive; available options include heated seats, power windows, SiriusXM, leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated audio and cruise control buttons, rear camera display, leather-trimmed seating surfaces and so many more. The Forte5's body commands attention and continues Kia’s tradition as a design leader in the industry.
