2016 Kia Forte Overview:
About the 2016 Kia Forte
The 2016 Kia Forte is the epitome of an affordable and stylish compact car. This Kia is available in LX and EX trims, which both start at under $20,000. While having an economical powertrain, the Forte still boasts solid capabilities for its vehicle class. Illuminated door handles and perimeter approach lighting are some of the cool exterior features in the Forte.

The 2016 Kia Forte LX is powered by a 1.8 L engine that gets up to 145 hp. The EX model runs on a 2.0 L engine that kicks up the hp rating to 173. Both of these four-cylinder engines utilize Dual Contiunously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) for optimum performance. The LX trim offers a fuel economy of 39 MPG on the highway, and the EX edition gets up to 35 MPG on the highway.

With a curb weight of just under 3,000 pounds, the Kia Forte is a lightweight and swift vehicle that's easy to handle. A Motor Driven Power Steering (MDPS) provides solid leverage in making sharp turns and other maneuvers. Installed only in the LX trim, a six-speed manual transmission offers a personalized driving experience. A six-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic is available in both Forte models.

The contemporary interior in the 2016 Kia Forte has a seating capacity for up to five people. Premium cloth is the standard upholstery in the LX edition, and leather is available in the EX trim. To supplement the dual-zone climate control system, the front seats in the EX model are available with heating and ventilation.

How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Kia Forte

Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:

  • Example: Base Kia Forte invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
  • What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.

Total Dealer Cost (calculated above) + Taxes / Licensing Fees - Rebate / Incentive = True Cost (You can get rebates and incentives here)

Note: All Kia Forte Prices above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
