The starting MSRP of the 2019 Kia Forte is $17,690.*
The 2019 Kia Forte is capable of achieving 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.**
From its new Intelligent Variable Transmission to its dash and safety technologies, the 2019 KIA Forte is moving quickly toward the future. The IVT replaces the old six-speed automatic, and it boosts highway fuel economy by three mpg. Without traditional gear limits, KIA's transmission can maintain precision at all speeds. Shoppers should know they can still get a six-speed manual transmission if they love to control the ride. Fortes continue to be powered by a Nu four-cylinder powertrain. A Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation system is just one of the many advanced components that drive this 2.0-liter, 147-horsepower engine. Handling hasn't been neglected in this update to the Forte. A new build provides a 16-percent increase in stiffness. Motor-driven electric steering builds confidence as the driver experiences accurate responses to driving commands. A multi-mode system lets you choose more economical or sporty responses.
This new build utilizes 54-percent high-strength steel while reducing overall weight for a more aerodynamic ride. The car's brakes have been enhanced as KIA engineers recalibrated the system for better stopping power. Technological advancements can blanket the car with safety tools. Drivers are less likely to cause a rear-end collision with the available Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist. Likewise, sideswipe collisions can be avoided with a lane keeping assist to pull the car into its lane lines. A blind spot monitor further reduces the chances of a side swipe by looking for traffic and warning the driver. Reverse maneuvers can be safer with the combination of a rearview camera, the new park distance warning, and a rear cross traffic alert.
Providing curb appeal, designers took the 2019 KIA Forte and made it more like the exciting Stinger. Flowing aerodynamic lines and curves help the Forte slip through the wind in style. A new silhouette manages to make it look more like a sports car, but in actuality, the Forte has grown wider, taller, and longer. This results in more interior space for passengers on both rows. KIA designers added lumbar support for the driver. Revised chair composition reduces the car's weight, but the seats actually provide better support for passengers. More soft-touch points and higher quality materials raise the premium profile of the Forte's interior. Special design elements include the aeronautic-inspired dash and its spoked, circular vents. The fully automatic air condition system can be controlled with a dual programmable thermostat. Amenities such as ventilated seats will make it particularly appealing to Orlando drivers. Available ten-way front power chairs help you get comfortable. You can enjoy premium living with the available SOFINO upholstery, power sunroof, and LED ambient lighting. Push button start is added with the car's Smart Key. Technology rules the dash with a touchscreen and HD radio. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto provide access to dozens of phone-specific apps. This lets you use your phone to send navigation directly to the touch screen.
