The masterful turbocharged engine is commandeered by a standard 7-speed Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission. This smooth-shifting transmission facilitates remarkable power across all gears and can be controlled through convenient steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, so you can quickly shift into motion. On the other hand, you can opt for a three-pedal driving experience with the available 6-Speed Manual Transmission.
Comfort Has Never Felt So Good
On the inside, the Kia Forte is simply loaded with technology to keep you entertained and comforted. You’ll enjoy Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control that allows you and your other front passenger to establish your own temperature for optimum comfort. As the driver, the Forte makes finding the best position easier with a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and two-way lumbar support. Also, the driver and front passengers will bask in the luxury of available ventilated and heated seats.
The Forte Makes Technology Look Good!
The robust suite of technology on the Forte isn’t confined to the interior. The exterior is also loaded with innovations highlighted by function and form. For starters, the Forte offers an available Smart Trunk. Instead of having to fumble with your keys, the Smart Trunk empowers you to stand behind the trunk with your keyfob for it to automatically open. This feature makes getting loaded up and on your way easier than ever. While the available LED headlights turn heads at every corner, they feature integrated Auto-Leveling with High Beam Assist that infuses safety to your front end. And in the back, the available LED taillights ensures you leave a striking impression on everyone you leave in your dust.
The Forte Offers a New Look on Connectivity

For starters, you’ll enjoy a standard 8-inch touchscreen display where you can access the available Voice Command Navigation. You can quickly connect your smartphone to your Forte with nothing more than the touch of a few buttons.
The standard Android Auto and Apple Carplay ensure you can control your smartphone through hand-free voice control or your easy-to-access touchscreen display. While the Forte keeps you connected, it also makes it easy for you to untether. Simply place your smartphone on the available center-console wireless charging pad to keep the party going without the wires. Also, the available UVO Link syncs your compatible smart device with your car to give you more control in ways you’ve never imagined:

Technology to Connect You to Safety
The new Kia Forte features a host of tech that connects you to safety. The robust six-airbag system will intuitively deploy based on sensors that detect the severity of impacts. However, many of the technologies on the Kia Forte are designed to prevent these impacts from ever happening. Some of these technologies are
-Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist will apply brake assistance when frontal collisions are imminent.
-Blind-Spot Collision Warning works with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and offers an indicator light on the outside mirrors whenever the system detects a vehicle in your blind spot.
