Kia Forte Trim Levels

There are six trims for the Forte. These are listed for your consideration below:

  • FE
  • LXS
  • GT-Line
  • EX
  • GT
  • GT Manual

Having such a wide selection of trims at your disposal allows you to pinpoint the one that best suits your particular lifestyle priorities because each one boasts a unique set of qualities. For instance, the EX and the GT Manual both come standard with the Wireless Phone Charger that allows you to leave those unruly charger cords at home. Whenever someone’s smartphone gets too low, all you have to do is place it on the front console tray and wait for the indicator light to tell you that it’s ready.

Kia Forte Interior

No matter where you and your passengers end up sitting inside the Forte, you can all plan on receiving plenty of comfortable space. Here are some of the measurements that help to bring this point out:

Front Row Back Row
Headroom 38.8 in. 37.5 in.
Shoulder Room 56.1 in. 55.3 in.
Hip Room 53 in. 51.1 in.
Legroom 42.2 in. 35.7 in.

Whether you’re taking your kids to the movies or you’re having dinner with coworkers after a long day at the office, these numbers show that everyone is sure to have the room they need to stretch out and relax.

Kia Forte MPG

You can certainly depend on the Kia Forte when it comes to fuel economy. The most gas mileage you can look forward to getting from the Forte FE is an EPA-estimated 31 city/41 highway MPG.* The LXS, GT-Line, and EX trims give you an EPA-estimated 29 city/40 highway MPG.*

The GT supplies you with an EPA-estimated 27 city/35 highway MPG, and the GT Manual boasts an EPA-estimated 25 city/32 highway MPG.* With whichever one of these trim levels you choose, you’ll have a better chance of having plenty of fuel left in the tank when you get to your destination.

Kia Forte Safety and Technology

The Blind-Spot Collision Warning is one safety aspect that’s worth mentioning. This available feature comes in handy when moving from lane to lane by bringing to your attention that there’s a vehicle in one of your blind spot zones.

The fact that integration with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® comes standard is one undeniable highlight when it comes to Kia Forte technology. As a result, you and your passengers will have the opportunity to access your favorite smartphone apps for an even more enjoyable time on the road.
