The 2021 Kia Forte sedan is in its third generation and is wearing its most sophisticated style yet. The Forte brings inspiration from its Stinger sibling, offering the perfect blend of sporty curb appeal and luxurious design.  

For the 2021 model year, the Forte is offered in five trim levels – FE, LXS, GT-Line, EX, and GT – and is powered by a standard 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with 147 horsepower. Forte GT models bring a bigger boost of power with a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, 7-speed DCT with paddle shifters, sport-tuned suspension, and 201 horsepower.
