Explore the Redesigned 2019 Kia Forte

Kia is a brand well known as a value leader, and the Forte compact car is one of the standout models in its lineup. For 2019, the Forte has emerged better than ever following a redesign that cleaned up and refreshed its exterior styling, improved its fuel efficiency, and upgraded its interior offerings.

The redesigned Kia Forte even sports a slightly larger cargo area and increased legroom in the backseat thanks to extra inches added for 2019.

What else does the revamped 2019 Forte have to offer? Plenty, in the all-important realms of comfort, safety, technology, performance, and convenience – all designed to make every drive in the Forte an enjoyable experience.

The 2019 Forte lineup has four fantastic trims for you to choose from, each offering its own selection of features and amenities that allow you to outfit your Forte just the way you like it. Here’s how the trims break down:

  • FE – This base model Forte has an 8-inch rear camera display, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and forward collision avoidance among its standard features.
  • LXS – The next step up the ladder brings in an intelligent continuously variable transmission, 16-inch machine-finish alloy wheels, and Drive Mode Select.
  • S – This trim adds LED daytime running lights, UVO eServices, voice recognition, and SiriusXM.
  • EX – The top-tier Forte model gives you a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support, push-button start, leatherette upholstery, and USB charging ports.

A Glimpse into the 2019 Kia Forte’s Interior

When you slide into the quiet and comfortable cabin of the 2019 Kia Forte, you might be surprised to find just how remarkably well equipped it is, especially considering its affordable price point. This is what Kia does best, and for 2019 they have upped the stakes even more in the Forte.

The redesign has simplified the compact car’s dashboard layout, which features a centrally located 8-inch touchscreen with user-friendly and easy-to-access controls and intuitive interfaces. Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are equipped in all trims, and a wireless charging pad is available.

When it comes to safety equipment, you can outfit your Forte with advanced protective elements like adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, lane keeping assist, forward collision warning, and more.

And despite its compact car designation, the Forte feels spacious on the inside, with ample legroom (which increased following the redesign) and a generous trunk (also slightly bigger for 2019) for your cargo needs.

2019 Kia Forte Engine / Performance Review

The 2019 Kia Forte models are powered by a 2.0L inline-4 Atkinson Cycle engine that generates 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. With the Intelligent Continuously Variable Transmission in place (it’s optional on the base model but standard on the top three trims), you’ll get incredible fuel economy numbers that add on to the Forte’s already stellar value.
