The 2021 Kia Forte Engine Lineup

There are two possible engines for the 2021 Forte. These are listed below:

  • 2.0-liter Inline 4-cylinder engine
  • Turbocharged 1.6-liter Inline 4-cylinder engine

Between these two offerings, you're able to choose the one that matches your lifestyle needs. For instance, the standard 2.0-liter engine can supply up to 147 horsepower that will ably get you from Point A to Point B. If you demand a little more from your on-road companion, the 201 horsepower generated by the available 1.6-liter engine might be the one for you.

Useful Conveniences

If you appreciate having access to all kinds of handy features, you'll be pleased to know the Forte has you covered. See below for some examples:

  • Dual-zone automatic temperature control
  • Wireless phone charger
  • Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™

The available dual-zone automatic temperature control allows you and your front-seat passenger to enjoy your individual preferred temperatures without interfering with the other's setting.

The wireless phone charger is also available in the Kia Forte. It makes it possible for everyone on board to make the most of their smartphones. All you have to do is place your device on the console tray and wait for the indicator light to tell you that it's fully charged.

Standard integration for Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ lets you and your passengers access your favorite smartphone apps throughout the drive.

The 2021 Kia Forte Safety Spotlight

Safety is another area where the Forte can be a big help. A few of its key features are listed below:

  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Blind-Spot Collision Warning

Lane Departure Warning is a standard aspect of the 2021 Forte. It uses cameras to keep track of your position on the road and will alert you if you start to unintentionally veer out of your designated lane. Forward Collision Warning is standard as well. This system acts as another set of eyes and can alert you to a potential front-end collision. Finally, there's the available Blind-Spot Collision Warning. It allows for safer lane changes by telling you when one of your blind spots is occupied.
