2012 Kia Forte Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr Sedan 156-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
After many trips up and down the eastern USA coast (NY-FL and back) It has proven itself reliable and seems to do very well on the highway. Available power is decent, and fuel mileage is really good. It's unusual f we don't get at least the rated 33MPG but usually are between 35 and 38 with a full passenger load and moderately filled trunk. see full Kia Forte review
2011 4dr Hatch 156-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I was able to get 33 on my first tank going 75 on 90% highway driving and 27 with more mixed driving and highway driving at a highr speed. see full Kia Forte review
