Many driver-assist features are included on all trim levels. Beyond this, the Kia Forte features an advanced infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen. Powering the base trim level is a 2.0-liter inline-4 engine that manages 147 horsepower and 132 foot-pounds of torque. Working in unison with the 2.0-liter engine is a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission. All Kia Forte variants feature seating for up to five passengers.

All Kia Forte trims come with forward collision warning and avoidance assist, lane departure warning and a lane keeping assist, and a driver attention warning function. These systems can work together to help boost driving confidence on Leesburg, VA roads.

The GT-Line, EX, and GT trims all come with blind spot monitoring, a lane change assist feature, and a rear cross traffic collision warning system. The above-mentioned three systems are options on the GT. Smart cruise control, which can adjust speed in order to stay a safe distance behind other vehicles, is an option on the GT.

 All of these specialized driver-assist features are in addition to what's traditionally offered on the Forte, such as airbags, anti-lock brakes, three-point seat belts, and electronic stability control. The comprehensive safety package showcases Kia dedication to protecting its customers, and it's just one reason why we're so proud to offer Arlington, VA drivers the Kia Forte.


The FE, LXS, GT-Line, and EX trims all run on a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. It has 147 horsepower, and it can be paired with either a manual or intelligent variable transmission. It does pretty well in terms of fuel economy, getting up to 40 miles per gallon on the highway.

The GT and GT Manual both run on an upgraded engine, which is a 1.6-liter turbo model with 201 horsepower. The GT uses a seven-speed dual-cloth automatic transmission that comes with paddle shifters, and the manual has six gears. With the automatic GT, highway fuel economy can be up to 35 miles per gallon, and this goes down just a bit, to 32 miles per gallon, with the manual.

Kia Forte Trim Overview

The Forte FE is the most attractive model from a price standpoint. It rides on 15-inch steel wheels and has a 3.5-inch LCD meter display. Both front seats are manually adjustable in six ways, and remote keyless entry makes things much more convenient. The infotainment system is impressive, with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and the eight-inch touchscreen being standard features. The LXS rides on 16-inch wheels, and because it has a 60/40 split-folding seat in the back, you have more opportunities to carry different types of cargo. At the GT-Line level, you start to see 17-inch wheels, and the audio system gets enhanced to have six speakers instead of four. This trim comes with LED rear combination lamps and fog lights. The EX has a bit more luxury, with heated and ventilated front seats, a Smart Key with push button start, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. The GT comes with black gloss exterior accents, LED headlights that can automatically level themselves, and sport seats with red stitching. Finally, the GT Manual tops things off with a Harman Kardon premium audio system, LED lighting inside the cabin, and a power sunroof.
