Engine Specs

Whether you're doing battle with rush-hour traffic during the week or running errands on the weekend, you want to be confident the mode of transportation you've chosen can get you there effectively. The Forte has two options to help accomplish this. These are:

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

The 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder offering comes standard. It delivers a commanding 147 horsepower, while the available turbocharged 1.6-liter inline 4-cylinder engine provides an even more robust 201 horsepower. No matter which one of these you choose, you'll be covered.  

Kia Forte Interior Measurements

From front to back, you and your passengers can depend on the Forte to provide comfort inside the cabin. Take a look at the numbers below to see what we mean:

  • First-Row Headroom: 38.8 inches
  • First-Row Legroom: 42.2 inches
  • Second-Row Legroom: 35.7 inches
  • Second-Row Shoulder Room: 55.3 inches

No matter who's on board with you, all occupants will be able to move freely within each row of seating.

Safety Items

The Kia Forte includes several driver-assist features to help out if you spend a lot of time on the road. First, there's Lane Departure Warning that lets you know if you're unintentionally drifting out of your lane. Lane Keeping Assist-Line goes a step further by using corrective steering to help you get back inside your lane if necessary.

If the Driver Attention Warning detects that you're suffering from fatigue, it will suggest that it may be time to pull over to get some rest. All three of these features are included as standard parts of the Kia Forte.
