First things first, Kia replaced the Forte's base 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with a 2.0-liter engine which runs on the efficiency-boosting Atkinson cycle. Horsepower and fuel economy ratings remain fairly identical to the old engine. The Forte EX comes standard with a more powerful direct-injection 2.0-liter that produces 164 horsepower. Either engine, drivers will find the Forte to be a responsive and fun-to-drive sedan that offers great fuel economy.
