Plentiful Power in a Pretty Package

Whether going on road trips or tooling around town, the 2021 Kia Forte gets the job done. With two engine options, including a turbocharged choice, the mild-mannered Forte can get busy quickly. All trims come standard with FWD and have a 14-gallon fuel tank. What is also notable about the 2021 Kia Forte is the eco-friendly fuel economy. The 2.0L engine delivers an EPA-estimated 27/37 with the six-speed manual transmission on the FE trim and 29/40 with the Intelligent Continuously Variable Transmission on the others. With the 1.6L turbocharged engine, the EPA-estimated fuel economy is still highly respectable at 27/35 with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and 25/32 with a six-speed manual transmission. The 2021 Kia Forte in all its trims sips fuel, so your wallet stays full.

Choose Your Motor and Transmission

Drivers have several choices on the 2021 Kia Forte, most notably their choice of engine. The 2021 Kia Forte comes standard with a 2.0L Inline 4-cylinder engine that gets a satisfying 147 horsepower with 132-lb.-ft. of torque on the FE, LXS, GT-Line, and EX. For more power, you can upgrade to the GT and GT-Line with its turbocharged 1.6L Inline 4-cylinder with 201 horsepower and 197 lb.-ft. of torque. All engines have 16-valve DOHC valve trains.

Keeping You Safe on the Road

Kia maintains its reputation for filling all of its trims with numerous standard features, and the 2021 Kia Forte is no exception to that rule. At all levels, the Forte comes standard with standard safety features that most other makes and models only dream of, including driver- assist features like Brake Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, and Driver Attention Warning.

Moving into the GT-Line and EX, the Forte comes with Blind Spot Collision Warning, Lane Change Assist, and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning. The GT line includes two additional safety features Forward Collision-Avoidance with Pedestrian Detection and Smart Cruise Control. All 2021 Kia Forte trims come with a complete line of airbags in the front and along the sides as well as traction control, ABS brakes, and tire-pressure monitoring. You can trust that Kia believes in safety for all drivers and their passengers.

Keeping Drivers Alert

Busy drivers can become drowsy at the wheel, but with Driver Attention Warning, Kia keeps you awake. This standard feature monitors the driver and sends a warning to tell the driver it is time for a break.

Lane Departure Warning is another helpful tool for drivers who need an extra set of eyes. Using a camera-based system, the Lane Departure Warning system notices if you veer out of your lane. Then, the system alerts the driver of this issue. The system also sends a warning if you are moving toward another lane at a high rate of speed without activating your turn signal.

These safety features – along with the rest – make the roads safer for everyone, as they keep drivers from making decisions that could result in debilitating accidents.

Comfort and Technology for a Pleasant Ride

The 2021 Kia Forte also has a respectable list of comfort and tech features on the inside. Keeping true to the Kia standard, all trim levels come with interior features that would be available on other models. From touchscreen infotainment screens and smartphone connectivity to climate control and seating textiles, the 2021 Kia Forte has several standard and available features.

Choose Your Interior Design All of the interior materials are designed to deliver comfort and style. The 2021 Kia Forte comes standard with woven cloth in the FE and LXS trims. On all models except the FE, the Forte has 60/40-split folding rear seats for added cargo space.

The GT-Line adds sport seats with SOFINO artificial leather accented with white trim. On the GT and GT Manual, that stitching is red. All of the GT models have leather-wrapped steering wheels with the same coordinating trim. The EX trim has SOFINO artificial leather seats with a classic design and a coordinating leather-wrapped steering wheel.

All of the front seats on the 2021 Kia Forte come with six-way adjustability, except the EX, which has ten-way adjustability. The EX also comes with heated and ventilated seats.

Staying Entertained and Informed On the Road

The 2021 Kia Forte comes with several standard infotainment features like the 8-inch touchscreen display and a four-speaker audio system on the FE, LXS, and GT-Line. That touchscreen remains the same size but has voice controls and UVO eServices for emergency assistance and diagnostic information on the EX and GT trims.

All trim levels come standard with Bluetooth connectivity as well as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ for instant smartphone connectivity and access.

Benefits of UVO eServices

Owning a car has become more convenient than ever. With the UVO eServices, drivers can access emergency services, get diagnostic information, and find parking just by tapping the screen. This feature is standard on the GT and GT Manual trims. The EX trim also has this feature, but it is accented with Voice-Command Navigation and SiriusXM® Traffic for even more convenience.
