2019 Kia Forte Design and Styling

The Kia Forte takes some design cues from the new Kia Stinger, adding aggressive-yet-refined details that retain much of the sporty vibe previous models have, but adding a more commanding presence. The front fascia of the Forte includes new creases in the hood, an updated take on the signature tiger-nose grille and updated headlamps. The Forte has a longer hood and short deck that give it a fastback-inspired shape.

Inside the Forte, the new fastback-inspired shape allowed engineers to create more passenger space to add comfort for front and rear passengers alike. A horizontal-themed dashboard shows off the wide interior space available and offers a fresh look with clean lines and minimal clutter. Circular vents and more soft-touch points make the interior design more visually appealing for passengers.

2019 Kia Forte Technology Updates

The 2019 Forte comes standard with an 8-inch color touchscreen that is compatible with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ that sits neatly on the dashboard. Select smartphone devices also have the capability for the display system to read text messages through Bluetooth®, and wireless charging is available in the center stack as well. A new 320-watt premium sound system will be available in the Forte with Harman Kardon that allows a crystal-clear sound to be delivered every time you turn on the radio.

A variety of driver assistance systems are available in the Forte now as well. Blind Spot Collision Warning and Lane Keeping Assist are still available, with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and Smart Cruise Control being added to the 2019 model.

More information about the new 2019 Kia Forte will be shared in the coming months. In the meantime, feel free to browse our current inventory and set up a test drive online for your favorite Kia model today!
