Kia's transformation continues this week in L.A. The unveiling of the 2014 Kia Forte, a compact sedan, proves the drive to redefine the Korean automakers aesthetic continues. Not only does it continue, but it succeeds.

The Forte has been extended ever so slightly from the previous model (about 1.2 inches). The body shape draws from the smaller Rio, and includes optional HID headlamps. Forte LXs will ride on 15-inch steel wheels or 16-inch alloy units. Upscale interior options include heated seats in both front and back.
