 What's New for the 2019 Kia Forte?

Following traditions, the 2019 Kia Forte has a compact body that's ideally suitable for urban cruising. The Kia Forte is available in several trims: FE base trim, LXS edition, S, and the EX. Three colors are available for the FE, and six colors are on the menu for the exterior designs of the LXS and S. These models come in Currant Red and Deep Sea Blue. Fire Orange is a hot paint finish that's exclusively available for the EX edition, which wears 17-inch wheels with a graphite composition. Machine alloys cover the 16-inch and 17-inch wheels on the LXS and S models. The base trim is fitted with 15-inch steel wheels. For its affordable price, the 2019 Forte offers above-average exterior amenities, such as LED positioning lights and rear combination lights. Standard in every trim, the Auto Light Control adjusts the high and low beam settings in response to the ambient lighting. With the optional Dynamic Bending Lights and Auto Leveling, you'll clearly see curved roads. These cutting-edge lights automatically change the angle of illumination based on the curvature and incline of your path. The EX has several exclusive exterior amenities that are usually standard in much more expensive sedans. For example, this car boasts the Smart Trunk that's synchronized with the Smart Key. Freezing temperatures won't hinder the operation of the vehicle's windshield wipers that have de-icers. A trunk lid spoiler and mirror-mounted LED turn signals are some of the EX's other top exterior installations.

Kia also deserves applause for updating the powertrain in the 2019 Forte. This compact car is equipped with a 2.0 L engine block that's engineered to follow the Atkinson Cycle. Using multi-point injection, the I-4 engine produces 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. The base edition has a manual transmission system with six gear ratios. Having an all-new design, the Intelligent Continuously Variable Transmission is installed in the other models. This updated CVT retains the classic Sportmatic technology for seamless changes in gears. You'll enjoy a highway fuel economy of up to 40 MPG with the responsive CVT. The FE gets a maximum of 37 MPG on the highway. Each trim has a fuel tank that stores up to 14.0 gallons of gasoline. An 8.0-inch touchscreen is a remarkable amenity that's available in this affordable sedan. You have access to the latest UVO applications in the infotainment system that has a standing design. From HD Radio and SiriusXM to AM/FM and Bluetooth streaming, you have lots of entertainment options in the 2019 Forte. This compact car also offers a premium sound system by Harman Kardon. Featuring seven speakers, the 320-watt audio system has an integrated subwoofer and the Clari-Fi technology. Standard in every Forte, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay make it easy for smartphone users to access the UVO multimedia hub. In the safety category, some of the car's all-new features include the Parking Distance Warning-Reverse and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist.
