2014 Kia Forte SX offers Turbo Power

Turbo performance comes to Kia

Kia unveiled the 2014 Forte 5-door SX car in Chicago recently and it sports turbo power. The car has a 4-cylinder 1.6L turbo 4-cylinder engine producing 201hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. That is enough power to put it atop the pyramid in its class.

The car will be offered in EX and SX trims with a pair of engine choices. The normal engine is a 2L GDI 4-cylinder with 173hp and 154 lb-ft of torque. The SX is the only version offered with the turbo engine.

Both versions will have 16-inch wheels, Bluetooth tech, satellite radio and lots more. The cars will debut in the US in Q3 2013 at an undisclosed price. I would expect pricing to be aggressive.
