Compact cars have never been as cool or attractive as the 2019 Kia Forte. Borrowing the contours and design elements from the luxury sports sedan, Kia Stinger, the 2019 Kia Forte arrives to a class of vehicles that is content to be adequate, offering the highest value style on the market. Additionally, the 2019 Kia Forte brings several changes to the compact car that make it an even more reliable and impressive traveling companion.
For starters, the entire interior of the Kia Forte has been reworked, bringing the 2019 Forte’s stunning stretched-out dashboard with floating infotainment screen in line with the offerings from entry-luxury brands. Additionally, Kia has upped the game for efficiency on the 2019 Kia Forte which now has a projected combed fuel rating of 35 MPG. Never has a compact car made such a strong appeal to our hearts, minds and wallets. Let’s see what the trim levels look like!

Kia has always provided value in the Forte, but it’s never been this high. With the 2019 Kia Forte, drivers who select the base trim level get several features that many manufacturers don’t even make available on their compact car offerings.
The 8-inch touchscreen display infotainment unit, for instance, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Audio is standard across all trim levels for the 2019 Kia Forte. Additionally, you’ll enjoy an immersive sound that can be upgraded in the 2019 Kia Forte’s EX trim to a Harmon/Kardon® stereo system.
The mid-range S trim level offers an upgraded experience that takes advantage of Kia’s brand-new i-CVT transmission. This transmission promises smooth shifting with massive projected fuel economy.
