When you're looking for an easy and efficient ride to cruise around the streets of Mechanicsburg and Harrisburg, one of the best options is a sedan. A sedan may sound plain and boring, but these are actually the most popular class of car on the market today! That being the case, however, the market is extremely competitive with each manufacturer typically having only a few available. This can make choosing the right one for you challenging.

The 2018 Kia Forte is one of the better options if you're looking for a new reliable sedan. The new Forte has a lot of features bound to impress a wide variety of people. Learn more about the 2018 Kia Forte, and discover if this trusty car is right for you. Test drive a Kia by contacting us here!


Inside the brilliant Forte is a stunning interior with style and functionality. Up to five adults easily over six feet tall can sit comfortably inside with 39.1 inches of headroom and 42.2 inches of legroom in the front. Higher trim levels also feature leather and heated seats to make driving more comfortable than ever. 

If you need a lot of cargo space in your car, the Forte is an excellent choice. The trunk features 14.9 cubic feet of cargo space which is more than you might expect from a sedan. If you opt for the hatchback version, the available space increased to an incredible 23.2 cubic feet of space with the seats still up.


Your sedan needs to get you where you need to go, and the Forte has more than enough power. The base engine can offer 147 horsepower which is pretty typical for a car of this class. You have the option for a more powerful turbocharged engine which grants an incredible 173 horsepower. 

Don't feel like you have to sacrifice fuel economy for that extra power, though. Even the powerful engine gets an EPA-estimated 28 mpg combined. If you opt for the base model though, you can enjoy an extremely efficient EPA-estimated 32 mpg combined.


If you're looking for state of the art technology, the Forte may be just the sedan for you. It features the UVO eServices infotainment system that allows you to play music, make calls and much more - all hands free! Even Google Maps is integrated into the system so that you can know where you're going before you even get in your car, simply by sending locations through your smartphone. 

The Forte also comes with numerous driver assistance features that allow you to have peace of mind while enjoying the ultimate driving experience. Blind Spot Detection system, for example, sends you alerts when a vehicle is detected in your blind spot. This same technology is also used to observe rear cross traffic that alerts you of oncoming vehicles if you're backing out of a parking space.
