The 2019 Kia Forte, now available here in Fort Worth, TX, is a solid option for anyone who is looking for their next sedan. With the power to get you where you need to go, and the technology features to keep the drive comfortable and entertaining, the Forte has the versatility to be a good family vehicle, or a vehicle for a single person.
You’ll have four trims for the 2019 Kia Forte; FE, LX, S, and EX. The standard engine is the 2.0L I-4, which gets 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque. The i-CVT, or Intelligent Continuously Variable Transmission, works to give you a satisfying 31 miles per gallon in the city and 41 mpg on the highway. If you choose to stick with manual transmission, which is on some trims, you’ll have 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.
Let’s take a look at what to expect when it comes to the technology and convenience features in this exciting sedan.
Other than the FE trim, which has a fixed bench seat, you’ll have a 60/40 split-folding rear seat to give you more cargo space when it is needed.
If you are looking for an auto-dimming rearview mirror, it is available on the EX trim. The dual-zone temperature control is standard on all of the Forte trims, as is the 8-inch touchscreen display. Don’t forget to check out the standard Apple CarPlay, Andriod Auto, and Bluetooth® wireless technology, which is also standard on all trims. However, if you are interested in the Harman/Kardon Premium audio system, then you’ll again want to go with the EX trim.
Standard safety features include the Hill-Start Assist Control, Electronic Stability Control, and the LATCH system. However, safety isn’t just in those kinds of safety technologies anymore. Take a look at the driver-assist technologies on the Forte, including Forward Collision Avoidance, Lane Departure Warning, and Lane Keeping Assist, all of which are standard on all of the Forte’s trims.
