Kia Forte Performance

Under the hood of the base Forte model, you find a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivering 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. The Intelligent Variable Transmission allows you to control your drive seamlessly and enjoy an uninterrupted experience. The base model enjoys an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 31/41 mpg city/highway.

Upgrading to the Forte GT model unlocks more power, giving you the muscle you need to push the pedal to the metal and dominate the open road. This Forte trim features a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, outputting 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. The GT trim also upgrades its transmission to a seven-speed dual-clutch auto option with Paddle Shifters. If you prefer better control of your drive, the optional six-speed manual transmission puts you in charge of your experience.

Kia Forte Design

Sleek and stylish, the 2023 Kia Forte isn't a model you can forget easily. The sedan seems more akin to a sports car, with its smooth curves and streamlined body. LED headlights with High Beam Assist throw light ahead of your drive at night and automatically adjust from high to low beams when it senses another car approaching. The rear-end of the Kia Forte will leave a striking impression on those who follow - with the Kia Forte, it will feel like everyone is following your lead! The available Smart Trunk™ feature opens up when you stand directly behind it with your key fob! You can also choose from nine eye-opening exterior color options, allowing you to choose the look and feel that suits you.

  • Gravity Gray
  • Steel Gray
  • Clear White
  • Snow White Pearl
  • Aurora Black
  • Sporty Blue
  • Deep Sea Blue
  • Currant Red

The new Forte might be a compact sedan, but the interior feels anything but compact. Its spacious cabin offers ample legroom and headroom, allowing your passengers to feel comfortable and happy. The lineup offers 111 cubic feet of combined passenger and cargo volume, more than many of its competitors! The split-folding rear seat allows you to pack more items on your next weekend getaway, while comforts like a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat and heated/ventilated front seats put your needs first when the weather doesn't cooperate.
