New GT Model

The Kia Forte is now available in new GT-Line and GT trims. The 2020 Forte GT compact sedan features a sporty exterior with enhancements including a sport-tuned suspension, red grille inserts, rear diffuser accents, a rear lip spoiler and available 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels with Michelin® Pilot Sport 4 summer tires. The GT interior highlights a flat-bottomed steering wheel, an illuminated GT logo on the dash, and SOFINO black leather and cloth seats with energetic red stitching. The GT trim is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or an optional quick-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. This available powertrain kicks out 201-hp and 195 lb-ft of torque and earns an estimated 35 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city.

Technology and Convenience

The Kia Forte comes standard with an 8.0-inch touch-screen display, Bluetooth® technology, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, a four-speaker sound system, remote keyless entry, and a USB port. Navigation with voice command, HD Radio™, SiriusXM® satellite radio, an eight-speaker Harman Kardon® sound system with Clari-Fi™ technology, two additional USB ports, a wireless charging pad, and remote start are available. Also, a Smart Trunk™ hands-free trunk opens when you stand behind your Forte with your smart key.

Safety

The new Forte employs a lot of safety features including Kia’s standard Drive Wise suite of advanced driver assistance technologies. This suite incorporates lane keeping assist and lane departure warning, forward collision avoidance-assist, forward collision warning, and a driver attention and drowsiness monitor. Additionally, a rearview camera with dynamic parking guidance, traction control, automatic emergency braking, and an advanced six-airbag system come standard.
