So much style has never been available in the compact sedan class. The 2019 Kia Forte arrives ready to challenge the tired conventions of a class known for cutting costs by cutting corners. Generously-equipped and with a style reminiscent of sports cars that cost twice as much as the 2019 Kia Forte, the Forte gives drivers an option that refuses to budge. Value, efficiency, features and style are treated with equal respect and aspiration in Kia’s newest take on the compact car.

New for 2019, the Kia Forte receives a host of improvements. The upscale cabin is, in Kia’s words, “A class above,” integrating driver assistance technology and active safety features to its more luxuriously composed interior. Innovative technology allows the 2019 Kia Forte to hit up to 35 MPG combined (projected economy), using Kia’s brand-new IVT transmission. Drivers will love the increased cargo space (up to 15.1 cubic feet), improved legroom and standard UVO infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

A Complete Experience from the Inside, Out

Delivering class-leading projected fuel economy and a style that pulls design elements from Kia’s thrilling Stinger sports sedan, the 2019 Kia Forte outclasses its competition by doing everything well. Up from the smaller 5-inch touchscreen present in past Forte models, the 2019 Forte enjoys a standard 8-inch full-color touchscreen that allows drivers to get all the benefits of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.

These innovative platforms carry over the user interface, apps and data from compatible iOS or Android smartphones, allowing you to use popular entertainment apps, send/receive text messages and make calls through the controls and screen in your 2019 Kia Forte. Wireless charging is available for compatible smartphones as well, ensuring easy in-and-out from your Forte.

Step outside the 2019 Kia Forte and you’ll know you’re not looking at a typical compact sedan. Design cues pulled from the Kia Stinger include muscular hood creases, full-width rear taillights with available LED lighting and a new and exciting take on Kia’s signature “tiger’s nose” grille.

The 2019 Kia Forte is set to arrive sometime late 2018/early 2019. If you’d like more information on the model, or to get on a list of pre-order candidates, contact us today!
