With Stinger-inspired looks, abundant safety technology and newfound refinement, the all-new Kia Forte is an impressive compact sedan. Backed by Kia’s excellent powertrain warranty and boasting a roomy trunk, the fuel-efficient and fun-to-drive Forte also makes a nice alternative to a compact SUV.
New Features and Revisions
Just about everything. The Forte engine, though still a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, now employs the Atkinson cycle, which together with the new CVT contributes to EPA highway fuel economy of up to 41 mpg. Inside and out the Forte is new, and we like the new long-hood/short-deck look.
