Yesterday we showed off the profile of the 2014 Kia Forte. Now here’s the mug.
Unlike its twin the Hyundai Elantra, the Forte will come with either a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine with 148 hp and 131 lb-ft of torque or a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder with 173 hp and 154 lb-ft of torque. The base engine gets a choice of 6-speed transmissions, while the 2.0 is strictly a slushbox. Also borrowed from the Elantra is the selectable steering system.
