[H]auling stuff is really important to me with the car, and one of the things that we noticed with the trunk, even though the seats do fold down, it’s a little narrow, so getting bikes or bigger items back there is going to be tough once you get it into the interior of the trunk.
The Best Car for an Active Lifestyle.
In pursuit of finding the best inexpensive cars on the market, we stopped by our local Kia dealer to review the 2015 Kia Forte. In this review video, we asked Ryan — owner of Apto Cycling and overall bicycling madman — to see if the Forte was the best car for his active lifestyle. The answer: A big ol’ “maybe.” See, the Forte is on the small side and the cloth seats may be susceptible to getting and staying dirty, especially after a loading your gear after a muddy cyclocross race. However, despite it’s small stature, Forte offers more storage space than you might expect. Plus, it’s not a bad looking car. In fact, our reviewers dug the styling, overall. Watch the video for Ryan’s review.
Our reviewers get to explore and drive the vehicle without the presence of a sales person. It helps us get the most honest and relevant reviews — all in the name of making YOUR car-shopping experience better.
