Shortly after its launch in the past summer, Kia Motors America’s all-new 2019 Forte was named a winner at the first Southwest Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year. Shortly after a local media rated the Forte “Best Value” in the category. Receiving mainly positive feedback from enthusiasts and buyers, new Forte is definitely a success for Kia.
Now, for 2019 Forte evolves in a more refined vehicle with a head-turning styling, improved drivetrain efficiency and extended list of goodies. Offered in four trim levels, FE, LXS, S and EX, Forte is ready to dominate both roads and hearts of fans.
The new guy is powered by a 147hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, mated to either a six-speed automatic or Kia’s first in-house designed and built Intelligent Variable Transmission. Some of vehicle’s technologies include Attention Warning System, 8-inch color touch screen with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, premium Harman/Kardon Audio System and Clari-Fi as standard. Neat!
