2018 Kia Forte Leasing in Huntsville, AL

When you need a dependable sedan that won’t require you to reach too deeply into your wallet, our staff at University Kia recommends the 2018 Kia Forte. Its sleek exterior conceals a dependable engine and a comfortable cabin, and we can’t wait to show it to you in person and schedule you for a test drive. If you’re trying to save some money in the short term, we’ll explain how leasing works and how you can make the most of it below. If you have any questions along the way, grab the phone and call us at 800-542-3325 or write to us via the contact form on this page.

Performance

The standard 2.0L DOHC 16-valve I-4 Atkinson Cycle engine will get you to and from work or across the country swiftly and efficiently. Put your foot to the gas pedal and you’ll feel 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque. If you want a little more intensity and speed, upgrade to the available 2.0L DOHC 16-Valve engine that can get you an improved 164 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque. The base trim comes with a 6-speed manual transmission, but you can make your drives more convenient and efficient if you choose the optional electronically-controlled 6-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic®. If you’re not sure which one is right for you, tell our staff more about what you’ve driven in the past and what you expect from a car.

Exterior

The 2018 Kia Forte’s exterior doesn’t just entice you from the driveway, it also has the features that you need to drive safely and confidently. The standard heated side mirrors help you cut through the snow, ice, and rain so that you can always see who is sneaking into your blind spot. To make it very clear to other drivers when you need to change lanes, equip the available mirror-mounted LED turn signal indicators. When you’re ready to feel the warm summer breeze as you drive down to the Tennessee River, you’ll be glad that you included the available Power Sunroof. To really make your Forte look good, spring for the Aurora Black or White Pearl premium color paints1.

Leasing

All of this can be more affordable than you may think, especially when you lease. Instead of paying off the full price of the Forte with an interest rate attached, you’ll just pay to cover the 2018 Forte’s depreciation value for the time and mileage that you have it. When your term expires, feel free to finish purchasing it, continue making lease payments and choose a new model off of our lot, or return the keys to us.

With the right plan, a new sedan is easy to bring home. Come to University Kia to learn more about 2018 Kia Forte leasing in Huntsville, AL. Our staff is eager to help you!

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!
