Kia Forte: The Compact Car Value Leader in Atlanta, GA

While most compact car shoppers tend to start with the ToyoHondas of the world at the top of their consideration list, the smart money these days is going toward the Kia Forte. We know that’s a bold statement, but we’re prepared to back it up.

For the price you pay for a Kia Forte, no other compact car comes close to touching the level of features and amenities you get. Kia went tech heavy with the Forte and that’s proving to be a wise strategy for winning over converts to this vehicle. It also goes without saying that the Forte gets high marks in the fuel efficiency department, as well.

Another great reason to choose the Kia Forte?

You get Kia’s legendary powertrain warranty. The competition can’t touch the Forte’s warranty and that’s peace of mind that money can’t buy.

Atlanta West Kia invites you to step outside the box when it comes to considering a compact car. The Kia Forte offers more features, technology and a better warranty than the competition at a lower price or monthly payment.

The best news of all?

Right now, we have Kia Forte special offers that can save you even more. Whether you are in the market to purchase or lease a new Kia, we’ve got a deal that will save you hundreds, possibly thousands, of dollars. Just stop by our Kia dealership today and ask to speak with a sales associate. They will be happy to go over all our money saving Kia offers with you. Atlanta Kia West is convenient to the Douglasville, Atlanta and Mableton areas with our location at 1301 Thornton Road Lithia Springs, GA 30122.

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.

As you consider which of the 2019 Forte trims would be your best bet, turn to the brand experts at Atlanta West Kia for help navigating your options. They will show you how to get the most bang for your buck, whether you decide that the Forte is the model for you or a different Kia vehicle wins you over.

And when you shop Atlanta West Kia, you’ll get an amazing price no matter what vehicle you choose. Excellent deals are part of our commitment to making sure that all of our customers are 100% satisfied with their experience at our dealership.

A Glimpse into the 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.

The 2018 Kia Forte has three trims to choose from, and all come at attractively affordable prices—especially considering the standard features included even on the base model. Here’s a quick breakdown of the trims and their key features:

  • S: LED positioning lights, UVO with 7-inch color touchscreen, Android Auto / Apple CarPlay integration, sport-tuned suspension
  • EX: LED rear combination lamps, leather-trimmed seating, heated front seats, smart key with push-button start

Interior of the Vehicles

Though long considered a value brand (and still offering more bang for your buck than most manufacturers can dream of), Kia has made great strides when it comes to upscaling its vehicles’ interiors. The Forte’s cabin is quiet, comfortable, loaded with features, and decked out with high-quality materials that make it feel like a much more expensive car than it is.

Roomy cloth seats can be upgraded to leather and offer plenty of legroom in both rows. Technology features are on par with many more expensive cars in the segment, with a user-friendly UVO infotainment system that some reviewers consider one of the best available. As for cargo room, the sedan’s available 14.9 cubic feet in the trunk is above average for a compact car.
