What Our Members Are Saying about the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2011 Kia Forte

2011 Kia Forte Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 4dr Sedan 156-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Plenty of room, indeed there may be too much room as it is a bit of a reach to unlock the passenger side door, almost impossible to adjust the passenger door mirror and lower the passenger window? Forget it. Plenty of elbow room. see full Kia Forte review
2011 4dr Sedan 156-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
My Jazz Bass, in its case, fits on the floor between the front and rear seats. Just like the front seats, there is plenty of room for two and adequate room for three. see full Kia Forte review
2011 Kia Forte Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 4dr Hatch 156-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I feel the seat is to far away from the wheel and the pedals are angled to steeply. The dead pedal is perfect though. see full Kia Forte review
2010 4dr Sedan 156-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
too small and too tight. see full Kia Forte review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2011 Kia Forte

2011 Kia Forte Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr Sedan 156-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
This isn't a sports car. It's a sedan. You won't be spinning the wheels or racing for money. It does, however, have enough "git up and go" when you need it. see full Kia Forte review
2011 4dr Hatch 156-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The engine and transmission seem to work great together. I have been babying the engine so far but it ha plenty of power to pass going from 70 to 80 with out struggling. see full Kia Forte review
