The Hot Highlights That Make the 2018 Kia Forte5 a Cool Purchase for Waterloo Drivers

  • Superior braking abilities. Winter slush and spring rains frequently make Waterloo and Milwaukee roads a bit dicey. It's scary when your vehicle skids and you feel as though you've lost control. In fact, that may even be a reason why you're shopping for a new Kia vehicle. Either way, you'll love the superior braking abilities of the Kia Forte5 which boasts a 114-foot stopping distance when braking from 60 miles per hour. That's 6 feet shorter a distance than the Forte's sedan version and significantly shorter than the average stopping distance in either the sedan or compact hatchback class.
  • A peppy yet efficient engine. The 2018 Kia Forte5 is powered by a peppy 2.1-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 140 horsepower and 148 pound-foot of torque. Yet, it does so quite efficiently, earning an EPA estimated 24 miles per gallon on city streets and noteworthy 35 mpg on the highway. Kia buyers can go with the standard manual transmission or opt for an available automatic, although the manual version provides a zest that makes this vehicle really fun to drive.
  • Personalized driving modes. The 2018 Forte5 was designed with driver's needs in mind. With the Available Driver Mode Select button, you can enjoy the seamless adjusting of power, steering, and transmission according to changing road conditions. For instance, the Eco model will prioritize the vehicle's fuel efficiency while Sport mode provides for a more performance-oriented and aggressive driving experience. In addition to this, there is the power driver's memory settings that come as an available option on the EX trim and standard on the SX trim.
  • State-of-the-art touchscreen interface. Most all of the vehicles being released today will include some sort of touchscreen interface, but few are as user-intuitive as that which comes installed in the Kia Forte5. This large interface boasts well-placed buttons that are easy to find and use. Additionally, the system includes Bluetooth connectivity as well as hands-free Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity so that drivers and passengers can easily play their favorite songs and podcasts, navigate to their destination, check their incoming messages, and access other preferred apps all with just a few spoken words.
