When driving is comfortable, life is good. Make it so behind the wheel of a 2018 Kia Forte. We’ll tell you as much about the Forte and our financing plans as we can below, but don’t forget that you can always come visit us at University Kia and ask our staff all of your questions. If you’re wondering about something and it can’t wait, grab the phone and call us at 800-KIA-DEAL or write to us via the form below.

Performance

It’s so easy to drive confidently and deftly in the 2018 Kia Forte. We can describe everything that makes it great, but nothing replaces taking the opportunity to try it out on a test drive. Once you start it up, you’ll hear a 2.0L DOHC 16-valve I-4 Atkinson Cycle engine hum to life, and you’ll have 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque to work with. This normally comes with a 6-speed manual transmission, but you can choose to equip the optional electronically-controlled 6-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic® if you want a smoother and more efficient ride. If you want to feel unstoppable, try out the EX trim for the 164 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque that you get out of the 2.0L DOHC 16-valve I-4 engine. With the base trim, you’ll hardly have to stop for gas, since you’ll achieve a fuel rating of 29/37/32 MPG city/hwy/combined1 with the automatic transmission. All of this power would feel like a waste if you couldn’t control the Forte well, but you’ll be able to navigate tight spots with a 34.8-ft. turning circle.

Financing

There are a few ways to purchase a vehicle, and financing is one of the most popular. Most people don’t have enough money to purchase a new sedan all in one shot, so financing comes into play so that you can split the 2018 Kia Forte’s price into affordable monthly payments. Before settling on an interest rate and a loan term, it’s important to establish your monthly spending limit and your purchasing power. Do both by clicking on the Financing tab near the top of our website and using the Payment Calculator. While you’re there, feel free to Value Your Trade to see how much money you can get for your old vehicle.

Don’t let the cost of a new vehicle deter you. Our seasoned Finance Department here at University Kia will make 2018 Kia Forte financing near Athens, AL, a viable option. Hop on I-24 and you’ll be here soon!

University Kia was a great experience. I came for oil change, multi point inspection, and tire replacement on 10/10/19. Pauley, one of the managers, arranged for everything to be done on time. He was very polite and friendly and carried me thru the whole process seamlessly. He also gave me a free shuttle service to work and back. The whole process took only about 2 hours. Keep up the good work!

I would highly recommend going to University Kia if you’re looking for a car. I love mine.

I had a great experience. When I went to University Kia I parked at the far side of the lot because I didn’t want to be pressured by a salesman. I saw a salesman walking toward me and I thought “Oh here we go”. The salesman introduced himself (Randy Wallace) and gave me a lot of information about the car I was looking at. I told him I was not going to buy anything that day because I was still looking around. He gave me his card and told me to let him know if I needed anything. That was the reason I went back. If he had started rushing me to buy something and pressuring me, I would not have gone back. When I did go back, he gave me the information that I needed to pick the car I wanted. He did not try to get me to buy the most expensive car, he just told me about the car I was looking at and the different options. I was the one who fell in love with the fire orange Forte in the showroom :) They worked with me and I drove the car I wanted off the showroom floor that day. Everyone was very friendly and honest. It did take quite a while to finish the process, but that’s probably the case wherever you buy a car. I would highly recommend going to University Kia if you’re looking for a car. I love mine.

Great experience working with this staff. Called on Friday and was able to set everything up for our new Telluride over the phone in about 30 minutes. Drove in today and filled out paperwork, and headed back to Maryville! If you need a Kia and want a great deal and smooth process it’s well worth the drive!!

We will be back!!

I can’t say enough great things about this dealership! My mother in law lost her husband and was in a bind with their car payment. Maurice Dobbins and his staff treated her like family and put her in a safe vehicle with a smaller payment. When relationship building is your main focus, like this dealership; it’s set for success! Thank you, Maurice and staff, for truly going above and beyond!

Thank you!

My husband and I went to University Kia in hopes of getting a used 2015 Chrysler 200 that I had saw online that I had fell in love with. The salesman I encountered was Randy Wallace and he was so helpful and really tried his hardest to get me in the car I wanted (and now have). The team at University Kia helped us tremendously and I couldn't thank them enough!

I went to u kia to look around and left the lot in a 2018 Optima. I couldn't be more pleased with it. This is my first time buying a Kia and I'm in love. My hubby loves it too! Ben Randall was very nice and helpful. He greeted us at the door and answered all my questions. The paperwork was done quickly and they worked to get the payments within our budget. I will be back for sure.
