You wouldn’t call 2018 the Year of the Compact Car. Steady, reasonably low fuel prices have seen to that by sending many buyers toward crossover SUVs. But if you are in the market for a solid transportation appliance to zip effortlessly back and forth from work, the 2018 Kia Forte sedan and its near-twin, the Kia Forte5 hatchback, are at your service.
And lest you think that the Forte is “too small,” you should be aware that vehicles competing in the compact class have been getting bigger. As a result, the current Forte and Forte5 are officially classified as “midsize cars.” That means more interior space for you and yours. Additionally, both versions of the Forte are equally good-looking and carry an impressive feature set.
