2015 Kia Forte Manual Features & Reviews
An excellent job has been done at increasing the passenger space by lowering the roofline gracefully. Yet, it wound up becoming a curse for taller passengers. In other words, the space for passengers is noticeable but there is not enough headroom for the taller ones. The doors are also designed and shaped in a way that allows easy entry and exit. Forte is better at soaking up roughness from the uneven pavement as compared to the predecessors.
Forte’sprevious three-star rating for the frontal impact score has upgraded to a four-star rating for the 2015 Kia Forte Owners Manual. The basic features that the buyers get by default include some cool ones too. They include power windows, air conditioning, audio controls for the steering wheel, and the satellite radio with a free trial of three months. The EX model is equipped with a rearview camera along with a step towards the innovative future. EX gets a new version of UVO that successfully discards the need for connected links to Google map for smartphones, a software of Microsoft. Buyers also get options for LED taillamps, pushbutton start, a ventilated driver seat, and leather trim.

The security scores failed the 2015 Kia Forte. Even after the redesigning, the 2015 Kia Forte could only hop up to “marginal” IIHS small overlap rating from the “poor” rating.

At times, the 2015 Kia Forte Owners Manual engine can become quite noisy as well.
