2018 Kia Forte for Sale near Galveston, TX

2018 Kia Forte for Sale near Galveston, TX2018 Kia Forte S shown with optional features.

As the world of compact cars grows, the 2018 Kia Forte continues to be the perfect vehicle for you. From the safety features and mechanical capabilities to the stunning exterior, you’ll want to be the one slipping into the driver’s seat. You can experience it all on a fun-filled test drive with one of our staff members here at Fredy Kia. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 713-941-0145 to speak with a representative. We look forward to hearing from you!

The engineers at Kia designed this compact car with your safety in mind. The Brake Assist System1 comes standard, and prevents collisions from occurring by alerting you of rapidly stopping vehicles and applying pressure on the brakes when necessary. If you do happen to be in an accident or difficult situation, the Internal Emergency Trunk Release is at your disposal and allows you to open the trunk from the interior of the Forte. The Traction Control System1 is another standard safety feature that helps keep your wheels gripped to the road, so you don’t have to worry about slipping and sliding.

Next, let’s talk about a few of the mechanical features that make driving the 2018 Forte around town more enjoyable. The standard 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder engine with Atkinson Cycle produces a strong 147-hp and 132 lb.-ft. of torque. Not to mention, you’ll spend less of your time and money at the gas station with the thrifty fuel economy of 29/37 MPG city/hwy2 when mated to the 6-speed automatic transmission. In the S trim, you’ll glide over any bump or rut in the road with the sport-tuned suspension, and satisfy your passengers within the cabin with a smooth ride down Seawall Boulevard. We couldn’t forget to mention that the 4-wheel disc brakes let you come to a swift stop when you’re in stop and go traffic.

Last, but definitely not least, the sleek exterior of this compact car will wow you! The available power sunroof lets you feel the wind through your hair on those beautiful warm days. The chrome window molding on the EX trim gives the outside of the Forte a luxurious appearance that you’ve always wanted. In addition to that, the available LED Rear Combination Lamps create an illuminating experience for everyone driving behind you. If course, we must warn you that they might be a little envious!

We know you want to see the 2018 Kia Forte for sale near Galveston, TX, up close and personal here at Fredy Kia! One of our team members would be delighted to explain this compact car in further detail. We’re located at 11711 Gulf Fwy in Houston, TX, and hope to see you walking through our doors soon!

I am beyond thankful for Fredy Kia and their workers Leslie Libby, and Edgar. I was in need of a car and the same day I walked in was the same day I drove out. I want to genuinely thank Leslie for making sure I was well taken care of; she literally did not stop texting me until I was in a vehicle and her persistence and sense of urgency meant a lot to me. Special thanks to Libby for her loving hospitality and a huge thanks to Edgar for getting me approved for a vehicle both affordable and reliable.

The car drove smooth, trade in process was easy

The absolute best car purchase I’ve ever had. Salesman Mario Paniagua is the most informative and caring person I’ve ever had the pleasure to deal with while making my car purchase. Mr. Fredy the owner is a real gentleman and leader in the auto industry. He made the auto purchase an amazing experience for myself and my wife. A special thank you to the person that put us all together (Jonathan Yonan). He has gone above his responsibilities to make sure we were pleased. Thanks to Big Papa Gill for the ease in how he took us through the financial paperwork.
