See Why Commuters in Marietta Love the New 2019 Kia Forte

December 17th, 2018 by

Nearly everything is new under the hood of the latest Kia sedan, and in trims from base FE and midrange LXS to the luxurious S and EX, there’s a drive-time experience for everyone. Take one for a ride here at Ed Voyles Kia in Smyrna, and you’ll quickly learn why your fellow nine-to-fivers love it.

For one, the car’s 2.0-liter engine, paired with an optional Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT), delivers exceptional fuel economy for longer stints on the road. Count on up to 31 MPG in cities, 41 MPG down highways, and 35 MPG combined, according to EPA estimates. Plus, as the I4 is now an Atkinson-cycle type, it comes prepared to deliver 147 horsepower backed by 132 pound-feet of torque for an energetic feel. Factor in a standard six-speed manual transmission, MacPherson strut front suspension, and available Normal, Sport, and Comfort drive modes, and you’ll find that handling’s just as sporty.

Secondly, 2019 Forte both looks the part and is exceptionally accommodating, with three new colors, optional wraparound LED lighting, available chrome molding and exhaust tip accents, and an elective rear trunk-lid spoiler, not to mention an interior designed to please. The latter’s home to woven cloth, premium tricot, and SOFINO leatherette-trimmed seat options, which are also available heated and ventilated in front, power-adjustable, and with power lumbar support. Bring optional dual-zone auto temp control and available ambient LED lighting into the mix, and it’s a snap to create the ideal cabin.

Furthermore, the new Forte is smart on tech for the jet-setter. 8-inch touchscreen infotainment gets an upgrade to a UVO eServices model in select trims, and features like voice recognition and standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for smartphone integration can help keep you connected on the go. You can also find voice-command navigation and SiriusXM traffic updates available to simplify getting where you need to be, and a standard four-speaker audio system can become an available Harman/Kardon premium variant in select models, shelling 320 watts via eight speakers to keep you entertained on the way,

Finally, a compact car like Kia Forte remains the safe bet for the ride. Passive security features like stability and traction control couple with driver-assist tech, making staying in-lane, on course, clear of other vehicles and accidents, parking, and even improving your driving focus a matter of course.
