Performance

This athletic vehicle houses a powerful 2.0L 147-hp powertrain capable of delivering 132 lb.-ft. of torque. It also features enhanced control thanks to the Motor-Driven Power Steering System. An improved suspension and throttle means you’ll have even more precision and control as you take your turns. The Forte also has features designed to let you optimize each drive you take. Whether you want an aggressive, exhilarating ride or a luxurious, smooth journey, you can easily switch between the Sport and Comfort modes.

Heated and Ventilated front seats

Comfort

You’re certain to be impressed with the 2019 Kia Forte once you get behind its wheel. Upgrade to the Forte’s Sofino Leatherette upholstery and enjoy all the comfort and appearance of leather with less of its long-term wear. Choose the all-black, two-tone gray, or red seat trim to match your own unique style. The front seats offer three available heat settings which can warm you up during the chilly months of the year and ventilation which can cool you at two different fan speeds by circulating air through the perforated seat backs.

Technology

The 2019 Kia Forte houses luxurious features that help ensure all your drives are enjoyable. Stay connected with your vehicle and the outside world by easily syncing your vehicle with your smartphone1. Your Forte even acts as a wireless charger for your device. And if you’re away from your vehicle but still need to access certain features, you can easily find its location or monitor guest drivers via your smartphone. With just a few words, use the Forte’s Voice Command Navigation to keep your route as accurate as possible, and with the available UVO eServices1, stay out of traffic and ahead of the game with real-time updates.

Dashboard and Steering wheel

Safety

Most importantly, you will be safeguarded while behind the wheel of your Forte. This vehicle is filled with a number of accident prevention systems that both passively and actively work to keep you confident and unharmed when you take a drive. Next generation driver-assist technologies use cameras and radars to monitor all around your car and keep you alert. You won’t be invincible behind the wheel of the Forte, but its features will certainly give you ample help whenever you’re on the road.
