Kia Forte Performance

Kia Forte Specs and Performance

Designed with power and fuel economy in mind, the Kia Forte offers a balanced performance fit for any commute or road trip. Overall, it comes with two engine options.

  • 147-horsepower 2.0L 4-cylinder engine
  • 201-horsepower 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine

The 2.0L engine comes standard for the Forte and provides the fuel economy you need for your daily commutes! When paired with the available Intelligent Continuously Variable Transmission, it gets up to an EPA-estimated 31 MPG city/41 MPG highway.*

If you want a little more sport and power with your performance, consider the 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. It’s the standard engine for the Kia Forte GT and works with an available 7-speed Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission, so you experience speedier gear changes and a smoother ride.

In addition to impressive performance specs, the Kia Forte offers numerous performance features to enhance your ride, including available Drive Mode Select. With a Normal, Sport, and Comfort Mode, you can customize your drive to your exact preferences.

The Forte also comes with an available multi-link independent rear suspension for agile handling and a sportier feel.

Kia Forte Safety

Kia Forte Trim Levels

The Kia Forte offers six unique trim levels:

  • Kia Forte FE
  • Kia Forte LXS
  • Kia Forte GT-Line
  • Kia Forte EX
  • Kia Forte GT
  • Kia Forte GT Manual

If you’re searching for something that includes all the basics of a dependable Kia sedan as well as a few extra advanced features, the base Forte FE may be worth a closer look. If you want something that offers a bit more comfort, test drive the Forte EX and experience its heated and ventilated front seats for yourself.

The GT trims provide lots of high-end features, but their performance is what sets them apart. Equipped with the turbocharged engine as well as sport-tuned performance systems, they can generate the power you need for a more exhilarating drive.

Though every Kia Forte trim offers a little something unique, there’s one thing that they all have in common: safety! Each Forte trim includes driver-assist features, such as Driver Attention Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist for added peace of mind.
