It’s no secret anymore. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration awarded the 2015 Kia Forte with a top five-star safety rating. This is a phenomenal improvement from its 2014 model year when it earned four stars.
With the 2015 Forte already on our lot, you may be wondering what lead to the five-star rating. After the 2014 model year, Kia added stronger A-pillars and lower side-sills to ensure the compact sedan’s chances of obtaining a higher frontal crash test rating. As a result, The Forte improved its frontal crash test score up a star, giving it the top overall five-star rating.
Besides these changes, the 2015 Forte is pretty much the 2014 Forte. And why not? The 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine lashes out 148 horsepower and 131 lb-ft of torque. And it doesn’t get any better than that with a compact sedan.
We have new 2014 and 2015 Fortes on our lot. Come check out our closeout prices and test drive this safe car today at Kia of Augusta!
