The Kia Forte sedan has just been named the top-rated sedan under US$15,000 in the Edmunds.com Consumers’ Top Rated®1 vehicle awards for 2010. Forte has been rated highly for its extensive range of standard features, excellent overall value and being one of the most fun to drive car as well as best-looking cars on the market in its class.

In addition to competitive pricing, Forte also showcase a class-leading combination of standard safety features with active front headrests, advanced two-stage airbags, front seat-mounted and side curtain airbags, four-wheel disc brakes with an antilock brake system (ABS), brake assist (BAS), electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), electronic stability control (ESC), a traction control system (TCS) and a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

Kia Motors America’s vice president of marketing, Mr Michael Sprague, commented that accolades such as this, which provides feedback from owners, are evidence of Kia’s commitment to consumers by offering vehicles with the content buyers want without breaking the pocketbook. To determine the winners of the 21 vehicle categories, Edmunds.com invited owners to use the Consumer Ratings and Reviews feature, where they are able to evaluate their new or used vehicles in eight different categories, including performance, comfort, fuel economy, driving impressions, interior design, exterior design, build quality and reliability. Top-rated vehicles are those that received the highest average rating from visitors as of April 28, 2010.

Congratulations to Kia and I am sure the new Optima will garner more awards for the Korean automaker.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
