Kia Forte: Fuel-Efficient Engine Design
The Kia Forte is all about providing a smooth, fuel-efficient, and fun drive that you’ll be eager to tackle every mile with. Luckily, this vehicle comes standard with a 2.0L I-4 engine with up to 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. This engine boasts some easy-going fuel usage with up to an EPA-estimated 31 city MPG and 41 highway MPG when properly equipped.1
How does this car achieve such an impressively low fuel economy? Well, with the help of this vehicle’s available Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). This system removes traditional gears from the transmission and instead uses a belt, which creates a spectrum of possible shift points. With this, your car will have the ideal amount of power for any given situation.
Energetic Entertainment Features
Nothing quite gets you into your ride like an entertainment system and the Kia Forte offers an impressive premium audio system. With a 350-Watt Harman/Kardon® Premium Audio System with Eight Speakers, you’ll truly feel your music rolling through the cabin.
To enhance your control over your entertainment, you’ll have an available 8-Inch Touch-Screen Display along your center console. This feature gives you easy access to your radio and Bluetooth® features, so you can enjoy all your entertainment right at your fingertips.
To help ensure that your entertainment never has to stop, you’ll be kept fully connected at all times with this vehicle’s available Wireless Phone Charger. Simply lay your phone down on this pad and you’ll be able to relax as your phone charges automatically. This way, you have a convenient shelf for your phone and it won’t run out of batteries any time soon.
Smooth Handling Features
This sedan also boasts some great handling with an advanced MacPherson Strut front suspension. This technology will help you roll over bumps in the road while still enjoying full control over your steering.
To help provide you with a more optimized handling experience, you can equip your vehicle with an available Drive Mode Select. With your choice of Normal, Sport, or Comfort modes, you’ll be able to customize your handling with just the right amount of control for this situation.
