With a 156-hp 2.0-liter engine delivering 28 mpg, it feels sportier than many small cars. The Forte also offers a host of impressive features such as Bluetooth and standard electronic stability control. Its IIHS crash-test performance was great too. The car was available as a coupe or a hatchback, and offered an optional 2.4-liter. The spacious and nicely finished interior also wins praise, while braking performance is excellent. Overall, the Forte is now one of the top-rated cars in the category.
