Kia Forte hatchback 1.6 SX (A)

The new five-door hatchback variant adds a new dimension to the popular Forte range here. We check out how the new hatchback differs from the familiar saloon model.

31 May 2011
WindTurbine Personally I think this is a really good looking car. If my budget allows, I will certainly choose this Hatchback - being easily the best looking 'Budget' car around.
