    The perk for the consumers who are interested in buying a car is that the Forte EX is perhaps the cheapest in the list. 16 inch tires with alloy wheels and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are the two of the most exciting additions to the new Forte. The sedan is presently the sole model that is there in the showrooms and the coupe versions will perhaps appear in the next few years.

    Anti-lock brakes, stability control and traction control are also there with this car and this will ensure lower auto insurance premiums.
