2020 Kia Forte Vs. Civic Si Vs. Sentra Nismo Vs. Jetta GLI
With its latest iteration marking the first year that the Kia Forte has had a turbocharged engine in its sedan body, there are a lot of reasons to be excited about high-value power. The Kia Forte, after all, is a vehicle that has consistently delivered more for less in terms of features and style. With an upgraded powertrain option, it’s better than ever.
The 2020 Kia Forte, however, isn’t blazing a trail by offering an upgraded, performance-minded version of a compact sedan. Drivers have, for a while, been able to enjoy the parkability and agility of a small car with an engine that allows you to accelerate quickly and pass confidently.
