2016 Kia Forte Sedan, 5-Door, and Koupe in Medicine Hat, Alberta
Typically, automakers have intended their young, first-time buyers to start with a subcompact or compact car and then steadily move up to bigger, more luxurious models as they age, have a family, and make more money. The 2016 Kia Forte changes that philosophy in a big way. If the Forte sedan, Koupe, or 5-door is your first car, congratulations, it might be the only car you’ll ever own! We don’t mean that in a negative way; the 2016 Kia Forte is such stylish, spacious, and surprisingly luxurious “compact” car that you’re likely to see that you dont need to upgrade in a few yearsit’s that good.
Take a look at the pictures. The 2016 Kia Forte is very elegant and excellently proportioned. Though many point to the fifties and sixties as the high point for automotive design, it’s clear they haven’t strolled through a Kia dealership lately. If you like the looks of the 2016 Kia Forte’s far-greater-than-compact road presence, check out our new Forte inventory. Whether you’re from Brooks, Bow Island, Maple Creek, or Swift Current, the 2015, 2014, or 2013 Kia Forte sedan, Koupe, and 5-door hatchback can be found in abundance at our Medicine Hat dealership lot.
