It might be difficult to reproduce official Kia Forte 0-60 times driving your own car, as measuring accuracy of Kia Forte acceleration from 0 to 60 depends on the transmission type or such variables as wind, weather conditions, tire traction or even weight of the rim. For the safety of the public, 0-60 times are often recorded by professional drivers on the closed racing tracks or dragstrips.

The good news is you can always soup up your car to have the best drag times. The easiest way is chip-tuning. The Engine of Kia Forte is equipped with an engine management system (EMS)/Engine Control Unit (ECU) which can be modified to different settings, producing different performance levels and boosting Forte\'s horsepower.

Right now we are well on course to post the data on transmission and engine on the Kia Forte acceleration page of our website. We also have plans to make it possible for any visitor of the website to add their own custom data on Kia Forte acceleration.
