The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
It's a family affair: the Kia Forte lineup is more comfortable, more eager, and better finished than ever, and a step up from what its sticker price might suggest. Call it fashionable or not; the 2013 Scion xB offers box-on-wheels versatility, easy maneuverability, and a strong list of features, all at a very affordable price.
