2018 Kia Forte5 near Waterloo, WI

The 2018 Kia Forte5 in Waterloo

Kia has entered the realm of competitive hatchbacks with this year's 2018 Kia Forte5 near Waterloo, WI. The old familiar 4-door sedan version of the Forte is still out there, but the new Forte5 hatchback is really adding something that has been missing from Kia's affordable line of cars. Here's what you'll love:

The Styling

If you've been searching for a comfortable, spacious hatchback that doesn't give up all its sportiness, the 2018 Kia Forte5 is a good place to start. It is a five door configuration with a hatchback mounted high on the roof so you can make the most of your cargo space. The rear seats fold down for even more space and convenience, making this more than just a grocery getter. With the seats up, the kids have plenty of leg room in the rear and won't feel cramped.

Plus, the 2018 Kia Forte5 comes in three different trim packages starting at just above $18,000. This is a comfortable starting point for anyone who wants a reliable, affordable new vehicle, and isn't shopping for a coupe or sports model. As you move up, you will see that the SX modeltops out around $24,000 with all of Kia's performance and technology upgrades.

The Performance

The best part of the 2018 Kia Forte5 in our book is the fact that it delivers the same fuel efficiency and responsiveness as the original sedan. The 4-cylinder engine fits snugly inside the engine compartment and feels right given the size and weight of the vehicle overall. The performance SX tier comes in with nearly 40 more horsepower and an upgraded transmission meant to help you feel like you're driving a sports car. With a sport-tuned suspension and other interior updates in place, the 2018 Kia Forte5 is notably more aggressive than it's competitors in this class.

If you love the look and feel of today's sportier, compact hatchbacks, the 2018 Kia Forte5 in Waterloo is an excellent option. It hits just the right balance between pricing and features. In addition, it goes above and beyond to deliver a fun, exciting driving experience.

To learn more about how the Forte5 is changing our ideas of what a hatchback can do, stop by Russ Darrow of Wauwatosa today and schedule your test drive. We have a full collection of Kia's latest models in stock and ready to drive off our lot.
