Its clean body will turn heads on the sidewalk, and its stylish interior is sure to give drivers and passengers a classy feel. Add in a high-performance engine and plenty of cargo room, and you've got a pretty versatile car on your hands. Make no mistake, the low prices for the new Forte are no indication of low quality. Quite the contrary, actually. Keep reading to learn all about it.
