2019 Kia Forte

Completely redesigned, the 2019 Kia Forte makes evolutionary advances, retaining its role as a smartly equipped, value-priced small sedan. The redesign brings simple controls, an easy infotainment system, and a solid roster of standard safety systems.

This vehicle appeals to small-car buyers looking for a good all-around car fitted with features they may not be able to afford on competing models, plus a strong five-year bumper-to-bumper warranty. Its blend of interior room, features, and price make the 2019 Forte the perfect choice for value-minded shoppers.

When driving around town, the 147-hp engine pulls adequately and coupled with the CVT (continuously variable transmission) the Forte shines for its ability to mimic a conventional automatic transmission, complete with effective faux shifts even when accelerating hard, such as merging onto the highway.  There is a manual override ability that allows the driver to move up or down among eight fixed ratios with the gear selector. That's helpful for controlling speed when descending a hill. Plus, moving the gear selector to the side, puts the car in sport mode. The Forte is rated at 34 mpg overall by the Environmental Protection Agency, marking a 2-mpg increase over last year’s model.

Once inside you will find cool features like an infotainment center that is very easy to reach and use. Below the climate controls is a storage nook that's sized well for smartphones. This space has two power points, an auxiliary port, and a USB port for connecting or charging devices.

All models are equipped with safety features such as forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, and lane-keep assist. It also includes Driver Attention Warning, a system that monitors lane position, steering input, and travel time to detect signs of inattention. The top EX trim makes several more features available, including pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warning, lane-change assist, and rear cross-traffic warning.

The qualified and friendly folks at Hanson Kia would love to schedule a test drive and get you behind the wheel of the 2019 Kia Forte. We invite you to make the short drive to the conveniently located Olympia Auto Mall and see all the new 2019 cars and trucks we have to offer.

2019 Ford Escape

Solid, sophisticated, and athletic, the fun-to-drive 2019 Ford Escape delivers agile handling and a taut, yet supple ride. Its cabin is among the quietest in the class. Overall, this small SUV feels more substantial than most of the competition.

The handling agility that the Escape delivers is reminiscent of a well-honed European car. The ride is firm, yet composed. Low noise levels give it an edge over the competition and lend an upscale air.
The most popular powertrain, a 1.5-liter turbo and six-speed automatic transmission, makes for pleasant and smooth power delivery.

Controls are well designed provided the Escape has the optional Sync 3 infotainment system, which is clear, responsive, and versatile. Some of the other cool tech features are:
Ford Pass®
BLIS® cross traffic alert
Lane keeping system
Bluetooth connectivity with voice control

The Escape is quiet and impressive for the class, offering a calmer environment than the popular Toyota RAV4. Road and wind noise are hardly present, and the 1.5-liter turbo sounds cultured while providing ample power. All these great features make the Ford Escape one of the most popular SUVs on the road today.

We look forward to seeing you at the Olympia Auto Mall and visiting the friendly staff at Mullinax Ford. They would love to show you all the great features the 2019 Ford Escape has to offer.
