Car Review - Kia Forte K3 1.6 SX (A)
Kia's ever-popular mid-sized sedan may only be a facelift, but the K3 receives multiple updates that will leave you wondering if it's a brand new model.

Reliable 1st car
I bought a used 2017 k3 ex model when it was 3.5 years old and kept it for 11 months. Drove about 14,000 km on it. It was my 1st car so u wanted something reliable and fuss free. Fuel consumption ranges from 12 km/l to 13 km/l. I use cruise control function whenever I'm on the expressways which can improve fc to almost 16 km/l. Good luck trying to get C&C to replace parts. Make noise and write in to complain if you have to. The car is not speedy off the blocks which can be frustrating but it's not a major issue. I didn't have any issues with the car. Only my rear suspension needed replacing which took a long time before C&C agreed to do. Likes: 1) low maintenance 2) reliability 3) excellent fuel consumption 4) cruise control Dislikes: 1) initial pickup could be better 2) C&C can be a pain to deal with despite car being under warranty

Excellent NVH Characteristics
It has been a year driving the Kia Cerato (L Series)(Since Nov 2017). C&C's sales team was good in terms of delivery and support. My initial expectations about Korean makes wasn't quite high. I was wrong. Noise insulation in the K3 was good, can see the efforts they put in, with road noise was better than expected (Nexen Tyres). Internals were very comfortable with a bit of conti feel. Gear changes were responsive, no frills.

Well Package Vehicle
Was comparing between Mazda 3, Subaru Impreza and K3, in terms of drive and features, and just completed my first 1k servicing. Found that the K3 to be the most value for money car, lots of nice features for the price point. A decent drive experience, much better than my previous Lancer Ex. While I was advised that ECO mode tends to be sluggish, I find it more than acceptable.

Great value car
Own this car since Oct 2017, so far it have exceed my expectations in all aspects except for the initial acceleration. It is definitely worth the $ for all the good features and I would say Kia have try to improve and is successful.
