2019 Kia Forte Vs. 2019 Nissan Sentra

2019 Kia Forte Vs. 2019 Nissan Sentra on split screen image

The newest iteration of Kia’s dynamic and sporty Forte is here to electrify and delight the stagnant and Spartan compact car class. As it has always done, the 2019 Kia Forte serves as a testament to surprising design and engineering, bringing uncommon personality to a class too often known for what it’s not. The 2019 Forte arrives with an all-new platform, bold styling that borrows elements from the Kia Stinger sports sedan and several under-the-hood and interior changes which make the 2019 Kia Forte the most compelling compact car and among the most compelling sedans in the game.

New for 2019, the Kia Forte gains a standard 8-inch infotainment system that rises elegantly above the stretched-out dashboard of the sedan. To make navigation, connectivity and media-consumption simple and minimally-distraction, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are standard across trim levels. Finally, Kia’s brilliant IVT transmission sees the newest Forte get up to 40 highway miles per gallon. Let’s see how it compares to Nissan’s Sentra:
