Kia Forte is one of the most sold vehicles in the sedan market today and that is the reward for its value-added capabilities. The 2019 Kia Forte will surely be one of the favourites in the small car categories, this year. You may be wondering what exactly has Kia included in the new Forte range that should make it attractive to buyers? The cool new features you can find on this automobile are;

More Engine Power

The 2.0L, 4-cylinder engine that delivers 147 Horsepower and 132 Lb. Ft. torque is just enough for a car of this size. You may think the engine is so small when compared to bigger sedans, but it is more than enough to handle all city and highway driving.

Forte also shares its engine design with the new Hyundai Elantra, but this is the first CVT transmission car from Kia and it is superbly intelligent in every way. The speed of the engine gives this car a smooth and quiet feel.

Sleeker, Yet Simple Interior 

The first thing you will notice about the new Kia Forte is the roomier interior. The controls are very simple and that has been the tradition with Kia automobiles.

The ideally weighted-steering in the interior of Forte makes the car produce a convenient composure, especially around turns. It is easier to detect the firmness of this ride, even when you accelerate on highways.

As expected from a modern car, the 2019 Kia Forte comes with heated front seats and automatic headlamps. Drivers will also fall in love with its new Cruise Control, that makes driving even more pleasurable. The keyless entry makes the car more secure. If you are entertainment-crazy, you will also enjoy the inclusion of Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto features.

Well-Integrated Car Controls

Kia has taken the minimalist approach in the design of the interior controls. The cabin is quite handsome and modern in every way, but the stereo and climate control still have those big dials for easy identification. The remaining icons and buttons in the touchscreen are quite simple, though the heated seat is operated by a hard button. You can expect very minimal distraction whether you are adjusting the temperature or volume of the music. The integration of all controls in this car is simply awesome.

Modern Security Compliance

Drivers will respect Kia for including the Rearview camera feature which has become mandatory in Canada since 2018 for all cars sold in the country. There is also a blind-spot monitoring feature plus the remote parking and locking features that complete the security upgrades on the new car. Adaptive cruise control and LED lights make travelling a lot easier. With the UVO series which is the first in any Kia car in 5 years, can help you diagnose any issue with your car, in seconds.

The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC), has recently named 2019 Kia Forte as Canada’s best small car for the year. This is one great endorsement for the car brand will need to increase its sales, and probably move up in the best car ranking.

The 2019 Kia Forte comes with a great price, and it is cheaper than most sedans out there which makes it ideal for economical drivers. Everything about the performance of the car makes it ideal as the best new economical alternative for drivers.
