Turbocharged four-cylinder: The standard 147-hp four-cylinder gets the job done, though the stouter 201-hp turbocharged engine in the Forte GT adds more sparkle to this sedan’s driving manners. Not only is it quicker in terms of sheer acceleration, the Forte GT also benefits from a sport-tuned suspension and upgraded exhaust system.
Standard features: Kia isn’t stingy when it comes to equipping the Forte with comfort and driver-assist features. The base LX model is fitted with an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, two USB ports, and keyless entry. A number of driver-assist features, such as lane keeping assistance and a rear-seat reminder, also come at no additional cost.
User-friendly tech: Many modern cars are saddled with a distracting infotainment interface that makes it difficult to navigate various commands while driving. Not so the Forte. Both the 8-inch standard screen and the optional 10.25-inch screen are easy to operate.
Tight rear legroom: Anyone who routinely travels with a full complement of adult passengers might want to make sure everyone can get comfortable in the Forte’s rear confines. Legroom in the second row is tighter than what many rival compact sedans offer.
