Going to College is an exciting time of life, but it can also be a stressful one as one tries to navigate a new campus, new housing, new people and transportation around new surroundings. For some navigating to and from campus requires their own set of wheels, especially if they are working at the same time. However, sometimes the cars we have been nursing along through high school or life in general just won’t make it any longer. Enter the well appointed- and priced- 2010 Kia Forte.

The Kia Forte was introduced to the American public for the 2010 model year as a replacement for the 2009 Kia Spectra. The Forte, from its initial introduction, has impressed reviews and consumers alike with its progressive coupe-like roofline and well appointed and layout out interior cabin. This definitely isn’t the type of entry-level Kia the market was used to seeing and to do one better you can pick one up for a starting price of $13,695 before the destination fee.

Lets face it, if you need reliable transportation and want the security of a long warranty (10 years/100,000 miles) then it doesn’t get much better than 2010 Kia Forte or Forte Koup. Yes, we just slipped a fast one in on you and introduce to you the coupe version of the 4-door Forte. No matter what model you choose, the Forte line-up is aimed to please with a mpg rating of 25/34 city/hwy and a peppy 2.0-liter four-cylinder 156 horsepower engine. There is also a green economy option that boost the mpg 2 miles per gallon, both city and highway.

The 2010 Kia Forte is a great choice for the soon to be high school graduate looking to go off to college or the current college student that needs to upgrade their mode of transportation without spending an absolute fortune.
