What's New for the Kia Forte?

The Forte is a vehicle that has years of quality models under its belt. Kia has manufactured a car that offers more standard features than most cars in its class, which makes it a remarkable buy for any driver. The infotainment system of the Kia Forte is more intuitive and user friendly than ever, and the interior is rather spacious for a compact sedan.

The most remarkable new feature for the Kia Forte's latest model is the changing of trim levels. The "S" trim has been discontinued, and two new trims have been introduced - the GT and G-line trim packages.

Performance

First, keep in mind that the Forte is powered by a four-cylinder engine as a standard. However, the Kia Forte is available with other engine options, depending upon what trim level you choose.

The standard or base model Kia Forte will come equipped with a 2.0-Liter four-cylinder engine that is paired with a six-speed manual transmission. However, drivers can opt for a continuously variable automatic or CVT transmission. This option is often cited by fans as highly responsive. The base model engine provides up to 147 horsepower. This is a nod to the fuel efficiency of the Kia Forte.

The new GT trim level offers a 1.6-Liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that offers up to 201 horsepower. This engine is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission; however, drivers can opt for a six-speed manual transmission if they so choose.

Keep in mind that the Forte is designed to be a fuel-efficient vehicle that gets you where you need to go, albeit it at a reasonable pace. While some feel the base engine is a bit slow, for local commutes, the Kia Forte answers the call of duty. However, if you'll be traversing the highway and want a little extra pep, you can opt for the turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which experts say tends to be a more quickly accelerating Forte.

Safety

The Kia Forte is a vehicle that comes standard with many safety features that you'll find only in upper trim levels of comparable sedans. Norristown drivers will enjoy a rear-view camera to prevent backing into objects or pedestrians. However, you'll also get forward-collision warnings or alerts and automatic emergency braking to prevent collisions ahead of you as you drive.

One neat safety feature of the Kia Forte - and one that is standard no matter what trim level you choose - is the driver's attention and drowsiness monitor, which will alert the driver and prevent collisions due to driver drowsiness or inattention. East Norriton drivers also enjoy lane departure warnings (closely related to the driver attention warning) as well as lane-keeping assist.

Of course, you'll get all the usual airbags to protect you and your passengers. The rear seat offers child LATCH tethers, and Lansdale drivers will enjoy the child safety locks (unfortunately, some highly intelligent children find it fun to try and open doors while the vehicle is moving!).

Also available are the following optional safety features:

  • adaptive LED headlights
  • automatic high beams
  • adaptive cruise control
  • blind spot monitoring
  • pedestrian detection
  • rear cross-traffic alert
  • reverse parking sensors

Safety is of the utmost importance for the Kia Forte driver, and Kia makes safety a standard they meet and exceed.
