Kia Forte Powertrain and Efficiency

 The new Kia Forte comes available in four different trim levels (FE, LXS, S, and EX), but all of them bring a nice blend of fuel efficiency and a fun-filled driving experience to the mid-sized compact sedan lineup. Underneath the hood of this sedan, you will find a 2.0-liter, 147 horsepower DOHC inline four-cylinder Atkinson Cycle engine which generates 132 pound-feet of engine torque and can travel an EPA -estimated 31 miles to the gallon in the city and 41 miles to the gallon on the highway, when the engine is paired with an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) which is standard on most trim levels. If you are a frequent commuter to El Cajon, you will appreciate the difference this makes with fewer stops at the pump along the way. 

Kia Forte Safety and Technology

As with many models of the Kia inventory, the Forte has received much critical acclaim over the years for its ever-innovating safety and driver-assistive technologies. Each model comes reinforced with a Steel Unibody frame, side impact door beams, and front and rear crumple zones, in order to maximize protectiveness without weighing down on the sedan and compromising fuel efficiency. Each trim level also comes standard with Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist-Line (LKA-L), Driver Attention Warning, and Forward Collision Avoidance Assist, as well as some extra driver-assistive features available in higher trim levels such as the Smart Cruise Control, and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with Pedestrian Detection.

2018 Kia Forte

San Diego, El Cajon, and National City car-shoppers, take heed. The new Kia Forte offers seating for five with plenty of space both inside the cabin and in the cargo area, plenty of standard and available features, and refreshed styling. This new Kia model also boasts one of the lowest MSRP's in the compact-sedan class, starting at just $16,600. So before you make any decisions about your next car, consider the Kia Forte.

Kia Forte Infotainment and Interior Amenities

From an attractively designed, upscale-feeling cabin to a large 14.9 cubic-foot trunk, the Kia Forte is deceptively roomy. Step up to the Forte5 hatchback, and this space jumps even further to 23.2 cubic feet. On the technology front, this Kia doesn't disappoint, either. For the new model-year, this capable compact Kia also offers California drivers Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration through Kia's UVO infotainment system.

Kia Forte Power and Performance

The new Forte comes standard with a 147-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, but an even more powerful 164-horsepower engine is also available. If you choose the Forte5 hatchback, you can also opt for a 201-horsepower turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, which provides plenty of fun whether cruising down the highway or twisting through winding roads.

Reliability and Warranty

Perhaps even more important than all of the above features to some buyers will be the warranty coverage offered on the Kia Forte. The Forte comes with a five-year/60,000 mile limited basic warranty as well as a very comprehensive 10-year/100,000 mile limited powertrain warranty. Not that you'll necessarily even need to cash-in your coverage, though - the Forte is ranked four starts by J.D. Power and Associates, making it one of the most reliable vehicles in its class.
