New and redesigned Kia Forte

Select model:
Kia Forte

Kia's newest entry into the compact market features the kind of clean, sporty look that is characteristic of vehicles in this segment. Forte is available in LX, EX and SX trim levels, and offers customers a choice of four-cylinder engines. A 156-horsepower 2.0-liter comes with a five-speed manual transmission, while the SX gets a 173-horsepower 2.4-liter. A four-speed automatic transmission is optional. Customers can also opt for a two-door version called the Forte Koup that is available in EX and SX trim levels. Inside, its 14.7 cubic-foot trunk is impressive for this segment. With the 60/40 rear seats folded, there's even more cargo space. All models come with six standard airbags, anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control.
