The Forte’s performance with its speed sensitive steering is accurate and progressive, its four wheel disc brakes are up to the job and a suspension which was tuned in the US for American road conditions absorbs bumps well without unsettling the ride.”– Automotive Magazine

running on regular unleaded gasoline.”–The Washington Post
