2018 Kia Forte Review

Residents and visitors of Louisville, Elizabethtown, and Clarksville have many places to get to, whether for work or leisure. A great way to get from point a to point b is in a comfortable sedan with lots of features.

One popular option is the Forte. But to help decide if it’s right for you, we here at The Kia Store created this 2018 Kia Forte review. Read all about this impressive compact car, and contact us if you have any questions.

Interior Design & Amenities

The 2018 Kia Forte cabin has lots of features for a comfortable drive. It comes standard with woven cloth seating, but has three additional seat trim options: premium cloth, black sport cloth, and leather. There are also soft-touch upper door panels, plus a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear shift knob, for a sense of refinement.

The front seats can be heated and ventilated, to warm up or cool down when needed. Plus, to get in that perfect position behind the wheel, the Forte offers a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support.

There’s also an available dual-zone automatic temperature control system. This way, you and the front passenger can select your preferred temperatures, so no one needs to be too hot or too cold.

Cutting-Edge Technologies

The list of features in the Kia Forte continues. This time, it’s to help you stay connected and entertained.

The vehicle comes standard with a 4-speaker sound system, along with a CD/MP3 player and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. It comes standard with Bluetooth® technology, as well, to stream audio or make hands-free phone calls.

Upgrade to a higher trim level, and you get the UVO infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen display.

This system comes with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. Plug your compatible phone into the car’s USB port, and your music playlists, text messages, and more will appear on the display screen.

Furthermore, the 2018 Forte offers a voice-command navigation system with HD Radio™. Use your voice to enter in a destination, and the system will relay real-time highway conditions through SiriusXM® Traffic.

Passenger & Cargo Space

Despite being a compact car, the Forte has more than enough space for five passengers, as shown through the following interior dimensions…

  • Front headroom: 39.1 inches
  • Front legroom: 42.2 inches
  • Rear headroom: 37.3 inches
  • Rear legroom: 35.9 inches
  • Interior volume: 96.2 cubic feet

It also has plenty of room for all your personal belongings. There’s 14.9 cubic feet of trunk space for grocery bags, sports equipment, luggage, and more. And with the 60/40 split-folding rear seats, you can fit as many items as you need inside, while still leaving room for a backseat passenger.

Test Drive the 2018 Kia Forte
