2019 Kia Forte Design Updates and New Features
The Kia Forte has received a variety of updates for the 2019 model year. It takes new design cues from the ultra-sporty Stinger, has new technologies and increased fuel efficiency. Let’s take a closer look at the updates on the 2019 Kia Forte!
2019 Kia Forte Design Updates
The Kia Forte maintains a sporty, compact image, but adds more sophistication. The Forte has improved proportions, with a long hood and short deck to give it a more fastback-like shape. The cowl point was moved back, giving the Forte a more athletic look that is planted to the ground. There are also more creases in the hood and new tweaks to the signature tiger nose grille and headlamps.
Inside the Forte, the new fastback-inspired shape gives passengers more space to stretch out and get comfortable. The Forte has increased leg room and head room for front and rear passengers, and it offers additional cargo space in the trunk. A fluid dashboard and minimal buttons create a clean look and help the Forte feel more spacious than ever before.
2019 Kia Forte Technology Features
New technology in the Forte includes a standard 8-inch touchscreen display with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ integration to help you stay connected with your smartphone while on the road. Bluetooth® even makes it possible to have text messages read aloud, and a wireless charging tray eliminates the need for messy cords.
An available 320-watt Harman Kardon® premium sound system pumps out crystal clear sound, and Kia’s suite of driver assistance features include Blind Spot Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist and more.
