2019 Kia Forte Amps Up Style With Stinger Looks


Image
Longer, taller and wider seems to be a thing with debuting sedan and compact cars at this years . And the same is true for the third-generation 2019 Kia Forte. Even more interesting, though perhaps unsurprising, is that designers borrowed some design cues from the Stinger.

2019 Kia Forte Borrows Stinger Styling


Following the Stingers lead, the third-generation Forte is sleeker and more stylish. A long hood and short deck gives it an overall more fastback-like shape. The front end is more athletic-looking as well with a Stinger-esque headlamp design. The all-new Forte offers projection or full LED headlights.

Underneath it all, Kia says its strengthened the steel frame and given the Forte stronger seat frames. (The current 2018 Forte sedan achieved an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rating.)

New Powertrain


The new Forte also comes with an updated second-generation 2.0-liter Nu four-cylinder engine. Its more efficient but horsepower and torque dont change from the 2018 Forte, delivering an estimated 147 HP and 132 lb.-ft. The new powerplant can be paired with either a six-speed manual or Kias all-new Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). The engine and in-house-built IVT are the first of a new line of highly efficient Smart Stream powertrains that will make their way into the Kia lineup in the future. Kia touts a combined 35 mpgs, but well have to wait for official fuel economy numbers.

Added Technology


Inside, youll find a standard 8-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay, along with wireless charging and an available 320-watt premium sound system developed with Harman Kardon.

The Forte, which comes in LX, S, and EX trims will also offer a suite of advanced Driver Assistance technologies found in many of the brands more expensive models.

The new 2019 Kia Forte arrives later this year.
