A Comfortable and Spacious Cabin

The 2020 Kia Forte offers plenty of space for front and rear seat passengers alike. However, the 2020 Forte’s upscale amenities are what truly make the car stand out in its class. It features available heated and ventilated seats, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a sunroof and dual zone automatic temperature control.

Those who want an extra touch of luxury can explore the more plush seating options that the 2020 Kia Forte has to offer. You can choose the available SOFINO synthetic leather seats, which are found on the EX trim, or the available sport seats with SOFINO and cloth, which are found on the GT trim.

Sporty Performance

The 2020 Forte features a lineup of powertrain options that its rivals simply can’t compete with. The 2020 Kia Forte GT is equipped with a powerhouse 1.6L turbo four-cylinder engine, which kicks out 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. It also comes with 18-inch GT two-tone alloy wheels, a sport-tuned dual exhaust and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the GT Manual trim level subs out the automatic transmission for a six-speed manual transmission for a more hands-on approach to driving.

Those seeking a fuel-efficient car for their daily commute should look into the standard 2.0L four-cylinder engine. This spirited engine delivers 147 horsepower while achieving an EPA-estimated 31/41 city/highway MPG when equipped with the available IVT.

The Connected Compact

The 2020 Kia Forte is loaded with high-end technologies. In fact, it comes standard with features that are expensive upgrades on competing models. For instance, its standard infotainment system is paired with an eight-inch touchscreen. The 2020 Honda Civic, in comparison, only comes with a five-inch LCD display.

Drivers will also benefit from Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™—a pair of smartphone integration systems. Simply link your compatible mobile device to access your favorite apps, stream music, use maps, make hands-free calls and more. Car shoppers can enhance their entertainment experience even further by adding the available Harman/Kardon® premium audio system and a wireless device charger.

Premium Safety Systems

The 2020 Kia Forte was constructed with a reinforced body comprised of 54% advanced high-strength steel. This provides better stability, additional structural strength and a quieter ride. Additionally, this compact car comes with a host of advanced driver-assist technologies that’ll help you avoid danger on the busy streets of Dublin, OH.

Every 2020 Forte comes with a rearview camera, Auto Emergency Braking technology and Lane Departure Warning technology. Plus, you can add available systems like Blind-Spot Detection technology, Smart Cruise Control, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert technology and Rear Parking Sensors to further assist you.

Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Rear Parking Sensors team up to help you in everyday parking situations. These systems will notify you if another car is behind you, so you can apply the brakes to avoid a fender bender. Meanwhile, Smart Cruise Control will make highway driving easier than ever. This system allows you to set a desired speed and distance from the car in front of you. Then, it will adjust to the pace of traffic, automatically slowing down when the car in front of you does and picking back up when the leading car accelerates back up to speed.
