It can not be denied that Forte is a not bad car but you can not compare it to P1 car model as you mentioned. It is not a fair coparison. May be you should compare it with Inspira right now.

I tested Forte, upgraded 6 speeds, both 1.6 and 2.0. Even though I do not intend to buy this car but test drive is a fun experience for me.

In term of power, I personally think that 1.6 is powerful enough. What I mean is when I pressedn the pedal, it would give me response.

In term of build quality, it is okay.

The problem is I could hear a loud engine sound when I pressed on the pedal.

Second problem is when I drive through uneven road, for driver, it was alright. But when my wife drove through the same road, I sat behind, felt like I was in the Avanza. According to the salesman, this car is tuned more to be sport car, that's why it happened.

I think with the package that this car provided and lower selling price, make more people willing to try kia's car.

r u saying 1.6 respond better then 2.0 ? Am not talking about the HP...but daily use, pickup etc....
