The Forte and Soul from Kia entered the spotlight recently as two of the best cars for teenage drivers. In the most recent U.S. News & World Report Best Cars for Teens list, the 2019 Forte received the “Best Car for Teens $25k to $30k” award while the 2020 Soul earned “Best SUV for Teens $25k to $30k.”
The 2019 Forte earned its praise for reliability, one of the evaluation categories. The DRIVE WiSE driver assistance systems also added to its ranking with standard features like Forward Collision Avoidance Assistance, Blind-Spot Collision Warning, and Lane Keeping Assistance. Along with those safety features and a reinforced high-strength steel body, the Forte provides excellent fuel efficiency with 35 mpg combined, a comfortable, well-appointed cabin, and modern convenience technology for connectivity and ease of use.*
Kia redesigned the beloved Soul for 2020 with new exterior and interior designs, an available turbocharged engine, and all-new advanced technologies. Its Kia DRIVE WiSE package and IIHS Top Safety Pick+ certification helped earn its place on the U.S. News & World Report list. On top of that, the new Soul has the UVO hands-free infotainment system that allows drivers to access music, navigation, and phone calls without taking their hands off the wheel. Not to mention available mood lighting to enhance the Harman Kardon® audio experience, a 10.5-inch HD touchscreen display, and an exterior color pallet that will make the Soul anything but drab.
