2020 Kia Forte: Wallet-Friendly Fuel Efficiency

2020 Forte Louisville KYThe first thing you should know about the 2020 Kia Forte is that it’s really an efficient Kia vehicle. For example, if you opt for a model with an Intelligent Continuously Variable Transmission (IVT), you’re going to enjoy EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of up to 31 city/41 highway MPG, and 35 MPG combined.1 Even if you go with a slightly less efficient 6-Speed Manual Transmission model, you’ll still get up to 27 city/37 highway/31 combined MPG.1

Driver-Focused Technologies

The next thing you should know about the 2020 Forte is that it comes loaded with state-of-the-art technologies that can make all your drives way more convenient, way more enjoyable, and way safer.

Convenience. In terms of convenience, standard Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® compatibility can enable you to access your eligible smartphone’s most important apps while you’re behind the wheel!

Enjoyment. In terms of enjoyment, a standard 4-Speaker Audio System will let you rock out all drive long.

Safety. And, in terms of safety, advanced features like Auto Emergency Braking Technology, Lane Keeping Technology, Lane Departure Warning Technology, Driver Attention Warning (DAW), and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) will all work toward keeping you and your loved ones as safe as humanly possible.

2020 Kia Forte: Determined Performance

Finally, you should know that the 2020 Forte packs a whole lot of punch for such a little Kia car. Don’t believe us? Well, the numbers don’t lie:

  • The available 1.6L Turbocharged Engine (which even comes standard on the GT trim level) kicks out 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.
  • Yet, even the most-affordable trim level’s engine (that’s the FE’s 2.0L Inline 4-Cylinder) still produces 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque.

Plus, with a MacPherson Strut Front Suspension, a Coupled Torsion Beam Axle Rear Suspension (with Twin Tube Shock Absorbers, mind you), and 4-Wheel Disc Brakes complete with an Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS), you have all the supporting equipment you need to make the most out of this spunky Kia car.

Reading about great performance just can’t do it justice. There’s nothing like experiencing it firsthand.
