Kia Forte Price Reduction

Kia is shipping the new 2015 Forte to dealerships now, but the price has dropped by $10. The new base price will now be $16,690. It may seem a little odd that a car maker would take a measly 10 bucks off such a large investment item, but there is a method to Kia’s madness. According to James Hope, spokesman for Kia Motors America, the new pricing would put the Forte at the lowest in the segment. Unfortunately, they may have jumped the gun here. Kia’s main competitors, such as the Honda Civic, Ford Focus, and Toyota Corolla, have not released their 2015 prices yet. Kia’s advertising will have to wait.

The Forte was just redesigned in 2014 and the new model doesn’t promise anything new. It’s a solid basic economy car though, without any modifications. All models come standard with access to road assistance, vehicle diagnostics, crash notification, and parking minder.

For just a little more dough, options include power windows, door locks and mirrors, cruise control, and remote entry. There’s a tilting and telescoping steering wheel that can even be heated. Driver’s seat choices include power with memory function, heating and ventilating. There’s dual zone automatic climate control, heated front and rear seats, push button start, navigation system, rearview camera, and Bluetooth connectivity also on the menu.

Most other models in the Forte line have been reduced by $10 as well, including the Forte Koup starting at $19,390, the Forte EX sedan at $20,190, and the Forte5 hatchback at $20,490.
