2016 Kia Forte - Miami, FL
During your search for the best economy car in Miami, you'll be glad you found the 2016 Kia Forte. With a low asking price, great style, and plenty of new features, the new Forte is helping Kia become one of the best-selling brands in America.
To help you in your search for an affordable compact sedan, here's a in-depth look at the Kia Forte in Miami:
Everything You Need from a Compact Car
The compact car market is easily one of the most competitive segments of the entire automotive industry. Creating the best affordable car is no easy task, as manufacturers are constantly innovating and redesigning their vehicles to win new customers and take business away from competitors.
Kia is one of those manufacturers. They want to show you that the 2016 Kia Forte is the absolute best compact car and Miami Lakes Automall wants to prove that it’s the best place to buy a Forte in Miami, FL.
To start off, the 2016 Forte has the best starting price of any compact car you'll find available in the Miami area. Compared to the Toyota Corolla, you can save $1,500 or more by choosing a Forte LX over a Corolla LE. Both models are similarly equipped, achieve similar fuel economy ratings, and have recently been redesigned. Why would you pay more for the same?
You might think that the low base price of $15,990 means there's absolutely nothing extra added to the 2016 Kia Forte and that could get stuck without air conditioning in the Miami heat. To put your mind at ease, the new Forte comes with plenty of great standard features to keep you planted in the 21st century while you're on the road. This includes Bluetooth wireless connectivity for both phone calls and audio streaming, USB and auxiliary inputs, one-touch power windows, and keyless entry that includes a trunk opener.
If you're looking for the reliability of a brand new car with a class-leading warranty, you owe it to yourself to test drive the 2016 Kia Forte at Miami Lakes Automall.
LX vs. EX Trim
One of the most frustrating things about car buying in 2016 is the large number of trim levels available on certain vehicles. It might not sound like a problem, but it often means manufacturers can charge you way more than you'd normally pay for options just by adding them to a new trim level.
For most Kia vehicles, including the 2016 Kia Forte, there are two trim levels available. One is an ultra-affordable base model with a ton of added options available--the LX. The other is a high-end model with almost every option added standard--the EX. Both offer exactly what Kia thinks its different types of buyers are looking for in a compact car.
In the previous section, we mentioned a lot of the standard features of the base LX model. The EX model, which starts at $4,00 more than the LX ($19,990) adds a lot of value and premium features along with that price.
With the exterior, that starts with the mirror-mounted LED turn-signal indicators. This subtle feature adds an extra level of safety to your new Forte to better warn drivers of your intention of turning while on the road.
Another exterior safety feature of the EX is the auto light control settings. This allows you to let your Forte worry about turning your headlights on and off instead of requiring manual action when the sun starts to come up or go down. One of Miami Lakes Automall's feature exterior features is the chrome exhaust tip available only on the EX. It might not sound special, but when you look at the subtle difference it makes, you will be impressed.
Moving into the interior of the 2016 Forte, there are a ton of differences between the base LX model and the top-of-the-line EX model. Stepping in, the most notable addition to the EX trim is the 4.3 touchscreen display, which allows for a standard back-up camera. Once you're fully behind the wheel of the Forte EX, you'll see that Kia has upgraded the traditional key ignition for a push-button start system.
The LX and EX trims both come standard with cloth seat trims; however, the EX provides owners with the option of receiving leather seats, as well a lot of luxurious seat features. If you decide to spring for leather seats, you could also add heated front seats, heated rear seats, and a ventilated driver's seat. The heated seats might not do you a ton of good in Miami's year-round heat, but the ventilated driver's seat is something everyone with a South Florida commute will appreciate.
Overall, the LX is a great way to get yourself in a truly affordable new car without having to worry about paying more for bells and whistles you don't want or need. Meanwhile, the EX has plenty of incredible features to attract buyers who don't mind spending more to get all of the latest technology.
Kia's Unbeatable Warranty
Most manufacturers offer basic warranties with their new cars. The standard is a 3-year/36,000-mile limited basic warranty with a 5-year/60,000 powertrain and anti-perforation warranty. If Kia were most manufacturers, this type of warranty would do just fine for the 2016 Forte and all other Kia vehicles available in Miami. But Kia is not like most manufacturers; Kia is better than most manufacturers.
When you buy a new Kia from Miami Lakes Automall, you're provided access to Kia's class-leading 10-year/100,000-mile warranty program. This warranty gives you ultimate confidence in your purchase, allowing you to enjoy it. Kia wants its customers to know that they stand behind their cars, and they're willing to put money on the line to ensure you're covered should your new Kia need it.
- Limited Powertrain Warranty: 10-year/100,000 miles
- Limited Basic Warranty: 5-year/60,000 miles
