Best Reason to Buy the Kia Forte: Warranty, maintenance cost
First thing was the 10 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty. While not totally unique, this was a major point I was looking for, way better than some of the 60,000 mile ones I saw out there.

Other Reasons to Buy the Kia Forte: Front seat room, Rear seat room & comfort

If you like the styling of Audis you will love the new Forte style, the hatchback looks like an A3 in my opinion.

Best Reason to Buy the Kia Forte: Exterior styling
Overall, very contemporary for the class, but the view from a slight angle of the back 1/4 of the car was a turn-off for me -- too square and two-dimensional.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Kia Forte: Materials & workmanship
Some of the interior materials seemed a little, uh, spartan.

Best Reason to Buy the Kia Forte: Exterior styling
It has a bold, exciting design, more so than the Civic or boring Toyota. Sleek lines all over the car and barely be improved upon. This is a "tough" car, and a hard sell from me being an American musclecar guy.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Kia Forte: Discounts & incentives
Nothing available except through KIA-HYUNDAI financing if you have a spotless credit record and 745+ score, apparently. College grad gets $400 but I didnt qualify despite most of this.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Kia Forte: Insurance & depreciation
The Forte can be expected to depreciate at a level far faster than the Civic. Any savings (and in my case the DX-VP was the better price) gained by purchasing a Kia are offset immediately by depreciation. This will grow into a chasm in short order
