Kia Forte Interior

Despite being a compact Kia car, the Kia Forte interior gives you plenty of space to settle in and get comfortable. It features two rows of seats for five passengers, including the driver.

It has a total interior volume of 96 cubic feet and enough trunk space for 15.3 cubic feet of luggage, sporting equipment, or groceries. As the driver, you'll get to enjoy a comfortable ride behind the wheel since you'll have over 42 inches of front legroom and nearly 39 inches of front headroom.

You can also make the most of every drive with available heated and ventilated front seats. Plus, it comes standard with an 8-inch touch-screen display in the center stack with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility. With these systems, quickly look up directions, tune into your favorite podcasts, and make hands-free calls.

Kia Forte Trim Levels

The Kia Forte comes in six different trim levels: FE, LXS, GT-Line, EX, GT, and GT Manual. If you want the standard trim, go for the FE. This configuration gives you a lot to work with, including a 147-horsepower engine, smart safety features, and a 6-way adjustable driver's seat.

The other trim levels build on the standard one, with additions ranging from innovative technologies to various performance systems and design options. Depending on the trim you choose, you can enjoy a premium audio system, a wireless phone charger, and Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control.

Engine Options

With the Kia Forte, you'll also have your choice of two different engines. The standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine comes paired with either a standard 6-speed manual transmission or the available Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). This engine generates 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque.

The other option is the 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that comes with the GT and GT Manual trim levels. This engine produces 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. It is also either paired with the 7-speed Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission (DCT) featuring paddle shifters or the 6-speed manual transmission.

Kia Forte Gas Mileage

As you'd expect from a compact ride, the Kia Forte is a pretty efficient Kia sedan. With the 147-horsepower engine and the available Intelligent Continuously Variable Transmission (IVT), it achieves an EPA-estimated 31 city/41 highway MPG.1 

With the same engine and the standard 6-speed manual transmission, you'll get an EPA-estimated 27 city/37 highway MPG.1

The Kia Forte is able to achieve such a high fuel economy because it's equipped with Front-Wheel Drive (FWD). This system helps to lower your Kia sedan's curb weight and keeps it more fuel-efficient. It also offers a fuel tank capacity of 14 gallons.
