Kia Motors America’s (KMA) second-generation Forte compact sedan has earned the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) 5-Star overall safety rating1. With its long list of standard safety features and extensive use of high-strength steel, the Forte sedan rated 5 stars in the side-impact test and 4 stars in the frontal and rollover tests. Starting at $15,8902, the Forte offers sport-sedan styling with class-up amenities and appointments at a tremendous value.
“NHTSA’s recent 5-Star rating of the 2015 Forte reinforces Kia’s commitment to safety. The Forte combines striking design, outstanding quality and the exceptional value our brand is known for with the security of knowing the vehicle you own has performed well in NHTSA’s rigorous crash tests,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, KMA. “We are extremely proud of the engineering that went into the second-generation Forte, and NHTSA’s testing has validated that effort with this 5-Star rating.”
Enhancements to the 2015 Forte sedan’s structure include strengthened A-pillars and lower side sills, which helped the popular compact sedan earn the coveted 5-Star overall safety rating.
