The 2018 Kia Forte May Surprise You

Since its opening in 2000, Kingston Kia has been dedicated to providing the best in cars, customer service and price. With the 2018 Kia Forte, the tradition continues. You’ll find features here that are uncommon in this car class.
A European-inspired design gives Kia’s Forte a sporty, upscale image. Body-coloured door handles and heated power mirrors and 15-inch steel wheels with covers contribute to the cohesive look of the compact sedan. A 50-litre fuel tank allows you to drive farther between stops for gas.
With five cloth-covered seats, the car has plenty of room for friends and family. The height of the driver’s seat can be adjusted manually. Auxiliary input, Bluetooth® cellphone connectivity, MP3 play, satellite radio and four speakers are standard on the 2018 Kia Forte. Steering wheel-mounted audio controls enhance convenience as well as safety. Tilt-and-telescope steering wheel, trip computer, and power door locks and windows, including driver’s side express down feature, are also standard. The rear offers 60:40 folding seats with a center arm rest.
Electronic power steering is standard on all Forte models, as are dual airbags (front, side and curtain), 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Control, Vehicle Stability Management, Hill-assist Control and impact-sensing automatic door unlock. The car features projection headlights which reduce light scatter, making the beam more focused to light the road ahead and not the surrounding area. Headlight escort function is also standard.
Kia’s Total Care Ownership Coverage offers protection for virtually all of your vehicle for five years/100,000 km. Five-year/100,000 km coverage extends to the powertrain, including the engine, transmission and axles. Roadside assistance is part of your coverage for five years with unlimited mileage. Kia even protects against costs for items such as bulbs, wiper blades and brake pads for one year/20,000 km, ensuring your satisfaction with your new car.
Visit our showroom or our website to choose your 2018 Kia Forte today. Our no-pressure sales approach and Certified Kia Automotive Service Centre will live up to our reputation.

Strategies to Maximize Your Trade-In

Getting a new car is one of life’s excitements. Buying a new car is also one of life’s bigger expenses, so when you’re ready to trade in your old vehicle for a new 2018 Kia Forte, you might want to maximize the value of the exchange. Before you meet with us at Kingston Kia, you could consider implementing the following strategies to help you with the trade-in for your new car.


There are two important numbers that you might want to research: 1) the wholesale value of the new model; and 2) the blue book value of your used vehicle. Having these figures in mind may likely minimize the time you spend negotiating your trade-in and maximize your satisfaction over the purchase of your new Kia.

Visual Appeal

It could be advantageous for you to devote a little time and maybe dollars into preparing your used auto for trade-in. Your car might only need a little elbow grease to polish it up or maybe a few dollars on a minor fix or fender bender repair, but it’s likely better for you to bring in your car when it’s in the best possible condition. Your chances of leveraging a good selling price can be helpful when your car is looking, and running, at its best.

Separate Negotiations

Consider keeping the trade-in and purchase exchanges separate. This way you keep the negotiation for each deal separate and clearly identified and decided. Then when both figures are final, the purchase agreement can be prepared. It’s time to get excited about your new car!

Satisfied Customer

You can help yourself become an informed consumer with some preparation before coming into Kingston Kia. Researching trade-in and purchase values and preparing your car for sale are likely to help with negotiating the purchase of your new 2018 Kia Forte or another Kia model so you can drive away as a satisfied customer.
