Kia Forte Specs

The Kia Forte is a sporty compact sedan that offers an efficient performance with a 2.0L I-4 engine. It can get up to an EPA-estimated 31 MPG city and 41 MPG highway, while also delivering 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque[i].

To go along with this engine, you'll have either a 6-speed manual transmission or an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) with Sportmatic®.

The IVT gives you efficient gear shifting but also offers the freedom to personalize your drive. The Sportmatic® feature let you take control of the gears by shifting manually without a clutch.

Check Out What's Inside

Inside the Kia Forte, you'll find a stylish interior with room for up to five people. Cloth seats are standard, but SOFINO leatherette trim is also available. You can enjoy some classic style features too like a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearshift knob.

There are plenty of ways to get comfortable too. Up front, there's 42.2 inches of legroom, while passengers in the back will have 35.7 inches of legroom.

Both the driver and front passenger can relax with adjustable seats and available heated and ventilated seats. Meanwhile, the back seats are just as versatile. The 60/40 split-folding rear seat can help you load extra cargo or get quick access to the trunk.

Kia Forte Technology

The Kia Forte has a standard 8-inch touchscreen on top of its dashboard. This is the home of the UVO eServices infotainment system.

You can connect your smartphone to the system with Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay™, or Android Auto™. This lets you access your favorite apps, music, podcasts, and even make hands-free calls.

The whole system is voice-activated, so you can switch between apps or change stations on SiriusXM® Satellite Radio without even taking your hands off the wheel.

Drive Securely

The Kia Forte has been named a TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) every year since 2017. It has consistently earned these safety awards with a strong, reinforced frame, an advanced airbag system, and lots of driver assistance features.

Using technology like Smart Cruise Control and a Blind Spot Collision Warning, you'll be more aware of what's around you. There are even features that are designed to prevent accidents when you're slowly backing out of your driveway.

A Rear-Camera Display comes standard and turns your infotainment screen into a safety feature. Whenever you shift into reverse, the screen will switch its display and show you what's behind your car.
