The South Korean automobile manufacturer Kia Motors launched the Kia Forte mid-2008 to replace the Kia Cerato. The 2014 Forte has gained the approval of auto critics for addressing consumer grievances against the previous Forte models, making the Forte a formidable contender in the compact car market.
On an average, Americans pay $1,336 to insure a used Kia Forte on an annual basis. The median price of this car ranges from $11,992 in Minnesota to $17,995 in Hawaii. The insurance percentage (the median price of a car when compared to its average annual insurance) is the least in Maine (5%) and the highest in Michigan (19%).
The insurance for a used Kia Forte costs the least in Maine, with an average annual insurance rate of $845, which is 5% of the median price ($15,900). This comes as no surprise, considering the fact that the state of Maine has a reputation for being the cheapest state when it comes to auto insurance. The average annual insurance premium in Maine is $827.
In the state of New Hampshire, on the other hand, the average annual insurance premium is set at $1,112. But you get the better deal when it comes to insuring a used Kia Forte here. With a median price of $14,495 and an insurance average of $924 (i.e., 6% of the median price), the Forte is an affordable deal in New Hampshire.
In Iowa, the median price is even lower ($12,900), and the average insurance is $950, i.e., 7% of the median price. In West Virginia, the median price is $12,995, though the insurance average is $1679, i.e., 12% of the median price. This means that you might save a considerable amount on the upfront costs here, but end up spending a lot more in the long run for insuring your car.
