Efficient and Effective Drive
We’ll start under the hood of the Forte, where you will find a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. This engine powers the Forte with 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque, providing you with plenty of power as you look to navigate the local roadways.
Perhaps more impressive than this muscle, are the efficiency figures earned by the ride. The Intelligent Variable Transmission with Sportmatic® works to seamlessly distribute force by continuously optimizing for ideal gear ratios. As a result, the Forte comes ready to earn an EPA-estimated 31 city/41 highway MPG.1
When you’re looking for a little more power behind the wheel, the Forte will also accommodate. Just opt for the available Turbocharged 1.6L 4-cylinder engine, which increases your outputs to 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.
Comfortable Cabin Experience
For its class, the Forte also offers a sizable cabin that promotes a comfortable ride. The interior features 96 cubic feet of volume, with 15.3 cubic feet of cargo volume. This will allow you to seat up to five with ease while also carrying any cargo you may have.
For further comfort, you’ll want to learn more about the Forte’s climate control offerings. The available Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control, for example, will allow you and your front passenger to designate your own personalized temperatures behind the wheel. So, whether it’s a hot summer day or a snowy winter morning, you’ll be able to find that perfect temperature with ease.
Additionally, the Forte offers available heated and ventilated front seats, providing you with even more climate control functionality.
Automobile or Personal Assistant?
When sitting inside the Forte, you will notice that it comes with a slew of impressive technology. In terms of multimedia, you will have an eight-inch multimedia display, through which you will have access to functionalities like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. These features will allow you to take calls, send texts, listen to music, and more from the road.
The Kia also comes equipped with an innovative driver assistive suite. Features like its Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection and Lane Keeping Assist will operate as a co-pilot, helping automate some of your driving experience.
With all of this technology, the Forte will double as a personal assistant on the interior, helping you seamlessly complete your daily commute.
