The Kia Forte is one of Kia Motors America’s best selling vehicles. Now in its third generation the all-new 2019 Kia Forte is better than ever. This compact sedan has been reinvented with sophisticated styling cues, advanced technology and a more efficient powertrain.
Although the new Kia Forte retains its sporty and youthful appearance, this new model has a more sophisticated look. New sleek and dynamic styling for the Forte has been borrowed from the new Kia Stinger fastback sport sedan. The new Forte’s long hood and short deck lend it an overall fastback-like shape.
With a strong focus on safety the new Kia Forte helps drivers stay connected with advanced technology and dedicate their attention to the road ahead. A standard 8-inch color touchscreen has been placed in the dash within the driver’s line of site. The infotainment system is Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® ready with the capability to read smartphone device texts aloud through Bluetooth®. New standard safety features on the Kia Forte include Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning technology.
The new Kia Forte powertrain is driven by Kia’s second-generation 2.0-liter Nu four-cylinder engine with Atkinson Cycle technology and a cooled EGR system. Typically reserved for electric and hybrid vehicles, the Atkinson Cycle and cooled EGR technologies are designed to help boost fuel efficiency. The 2019 Kia Forte will be available with a choice of two transmission types, the standard six-speed manual or an all-new Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT).
