Trunk and backseat space.
Our Take
Despite its affordable price tag, the interior of the Forte is one of the nicest in the segment.
The Forte sedan would be a lot more fun if it were offered with the turbo engine and manual gearbox out of the Forte5 SX.
While it may not be the best sedan in the segment, the Forte remains a practical and well-made machine.
