Keeping in line with the stylish and practical Forte compact sedan and first-for-Kia Forte Koup, the all-new 2011 Forte five-door adds another attractive option to the Forte family.
The Kia 2011 Forte five-door builds on the popular Forte compact sedan and bold Forte Koup by employing another practical yet modern iteration of the platform.
Lower and firmly set on its haunches, the 2011 Kia Forte five-door carries with it all the amenities of the Forte line and introduces a new front grille, alloy wheels, lower valence design, center console, paddle shifters, push-button start and navigation in addition to the ostensible fifth door for a distinct appearance and intentional practicality.
The 2011 Forte five-door is available with two efficient engines — 2.0-liter or 2.4-liter — and a new six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
“We have been promoting the Kia brand evolution over the past few years and backed it up with dramatic gains in quality and value while adding world-class design every step of the way,” said Michael Sprague, vice president, marketing, KMA. “Kia’s recent launch cycle has now delivered eight new products in less than two years, this aggressiveness is nothing short of amazing and speaks to the growing power of the brand in the U.S. and globally.”
