Available in compact sedan and station wagon versions, the Korean-built Forenza is among the most affordable vehicles of its type, wagon versions especially. For 2007, the Forenza is basically a carryover with only minor changes including a tire-pressure monitoring system and MP3 capability for the standard audio system, distinguishing it from the ’06 versions. The Forenza’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces 127-horsepower and drives the front wheels via either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. It rides on MacPherson struts up front and a dual-link suspension in the rear, with variable-assist power steering and four-wheel disc brakes. Front and front-side airbags are standard across the line. Air conditioning, a CD stereo and power locks, windows, and heated mirrors are standard on the base Forenza, with antilock brakes, cruise control, fog lamps, keyless entry, and a power sunroof available on the Premium version.
