Shoppers can choose from two different red-accented interiors for the 2021 Kia Forte GT. This sports sedan can be filled with Black SOFINO Artificial Leather with red stitching or a combination of Black SOFINO Artificial Leather and cloth with red accent stitching. The flat-bottomed performance steering wheel adds an extra edge to the aggressive interior inside the Forte GT. An illuminated “GT” logo on the dashboard and ambient interior lighting sets the mood for an adrenaline-pumping performance in the Forte GT.  

How Much Horsepower Does Kia Forte GT Make? 

The 2021 Kia Forte GT puts the power back into the hands of drivers.
