2011 Kia Forte Fuel Economy

8.0
Fuel Economy
Some small cars in this class have been returning disappointing fuel economy; the 2011 Kia Forte isn't one of those, but it's not class-leading either at this time when 40 mpg seems to be the new EPA highway standard for compacts to beat.

According to the official EPA estimates, the Forte should return 25 mpg city and 34 mpg highway with the 2.0-liter engine and the six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. As part of the Fuel Economy Package, the Forte gets 27 mpg city and 37 mpg on the highway and includes electric power steering, low-rolling-resistance tires, and aerodynamic improvements. For the higher-output 2.4-liter engine, the automatic will return 23 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.
