Palmen Kia puts the 2014 Kia Forte up against the competition

Kenosha Kia dealership stocks popular new Forte

KENOSHA, Wis., June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Since being introduced to the public, the 2014 Kia Forte has redefined the segment. With two powerful, yet efficient four-cylinder engines and cutting edge style, the Forte has been driving off dealership lots all over the country. But even though the car has some impressive stats to show off, the professionals at Palmen Kia still want to make sure that consumers have all the information they need. That's why they are offering a comparison of 2014 Kia Forte vs Ford Focus.


Similarly equipped, the new Forte and the Focus offer nearly identical fuel mileage. But when it comes to performance, the Forte leads the way. With the 2.0-liter engine under the hood, the Forte has output of 173 horsepower and 154 lb-ft of torque. In comparison, the Focus has output of 160 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque.

While the performance numbers may tell a story, consumers may also be surprised to learn that the new Forte also offers more cargo capacity than the Focus. The Forte has cargo capacity of 14.9 cubic ft compared to just 13.2 cubic ft on the Focus. The numbers may be similar, but consumers realize that every inch counts when fitting items into a car.

The professionals at Palmen Kia may be convinced that that 2014 Forte is superior to the Focus. But they invite consumers down to judge for themselves with a Forte test drive in Kenosha. In addition to new cars, the dealership also has a large selection of used vehicles on the lot that it provides to a large area. Anyone looking for a used Kia in Gurnee or Antioch, IL – or the surrounding communities – is welcomed by Palmen.
