2019 Kia Forte Performance

To give this car a powerful yet smooth ride on the road, Kia has included a 2.0L Atkinson Cycle engine, generating 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. While working alongside the available intelligent Continuously Variable Transmission, it provides a generous fuel efficiency of 31 city/41 highway/35 combined MPG.1 So, feel free to hit the road and rest easy knowing it's not going to cost you much to fill the 14-gallon tank.

Convenience at Your Fingertips

The Kia Forte has your back when it comes to reminding you about important things while driving. The available and innovative UVO eServices is an app that is connected to your vehicle that truly works on your side. To keep track of your vehicle at always, it records your its location and you can even set parking reminders, as well as share your location with others via your smartphone.

You can also review your driving data with the Trip Info feature, so you can track your driving habits monthly, allowing you to review routes and make changes for better efficiency. Finally, it will remind you when it's time to schedule maintenance appointments, which you can do right from the app.

Spacious Interior & Cargo

Get ready to stretch out inside the 2019 Forte. Though compact on the outside, the inside has the ability to seat up to five passengers with 38.8 inches of headroom in the front and 37.5 inches in the back. Your legs will also have plenty of room with front measuring in at 42.2 inches and the back at 35.7 inches. Even your taller passengers won't feel cramped in this vehicle.

The Forte also includes 60/40 split-folding rear seats which allow you to utilize the 15.3 cubic feet of cargo space to your heart's content. You can also fit longer items in the back while still having space for two rear-seat passengers at a time.
