2019 Kia Forte 

"In short, the Kia Forte has grown up. It's more refined and sportier, while boasting more tech."

- KBB.com


The 2019 Kia Forte is back and redesigned, and it's going to be just as popular as its previous generations. Like in the previous model, this generation is powered by a 2.0-liter Nu 4-cylinder engine, but it's now more fuel-efficient with an Atkinson Cycle technology. The six speed manual FE trim provides EPA estimated 37 mpg highway and 31 mpg combined. If you choose the FE with available intelligent continuously variable automatic transmission (IVT), the EPA fuel economy increases to over 40 mpg highway and 35 mpg combined. Three electronic drive modes let you choose from Normal, Smart, and Sport, so you'll always be surprised by how fun it is to drive the 2019 Forte.

  • Available intelligent variable automatic transmission (IVT)
  • Available six-speed manual transmission
  • Available 147 horsepower
  • Available 132 lb-ft of torque


Kia has a good eye for redesigning vehicles to fit the needs of the driver, and they've continued to do so with the 2019 Kia Forte. This model has been inspired by the sporty design of the Kia Stinger, and it shows with a sleeker and more aerodynamic exterior. It's also larger, with about an extra inch in width and height, which helps to add more legroom and space for passengers. An available power sunroof allows a feeling of openness and lets passengers opt for fresh air, or they can choose to keep the roof closed on colder days and use the standard dual-zone climate control.

  • Available 60/40 split-folding seats
  • Increased cabin size
  • Available power sunroof
  • Standard dual-zone climate control
