Ample Interior Space and Cargo Area

If you spend significant time in your on-road companion either enjoying an adventure or getting to work every day, you want a comfortable cabin that feels spacious. We think the Kia Forte fulfills that role.

When you settle into the Kia Forte, you can truly find your sweet spot with the available 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat featuring power lumbar support. A standard woven cloth seat trim creates a softer, cozier cabin. In the GT-Line trim, sport seats with SynTex seating material and GT-exclusive stitching add an extra dash of style, too.

Optional amenities like heated and ventilated seating, dual-zone automatic temperature control, and a power sunroof can be found throughout this Kia vehicle.

Check out the dimensions within the cabin:

HEADROOM 38.8" 37.5"
HIP ROOM 53" 51.1"
LEGROOM 42.2" 35.7"
SHOULDER ROOM 56.1" 55.3"


Stash your shopping bags or luggage for a weekend away in 15.3 cubic feet of trunk space. If you want the available split-folding rear seat, you can still count on enough room for two passengers with the seat down. The optional Smart Trunk™ makes your cargo easily accessible and opens with the Smart Key on hand.

Packed with Next-Gen Tech

On the infotainment and navigation side of things, you will find a standard 8-inch touchscreen display. An array of other standard and available features is also available, including:

  • Voice Command Navigation System
  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio with commercial-free stations
  • Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration for smartphone app access

To help you make the most of these high-tech features, the Kia Forte offers an optional 8-speaker Harman Kardon® Premium Audio with Clari-Fi™ restoration technology system that quickly immerses you in your favorite playlists, podcasts, audiobooks, stations, and more.

Active Safety & Driver Assistance

The 2022 Kia Forte offers the Drive Wise Driver Assist Technology suite to give you greater confidence behind the wheel. It includes a plethora of standard and available features, such as:

  • Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW): Lets you know if a fellow driver is in your blind spot.
  • Lane Keeping Assist (LKA): Provides corrective steering, if necessary, to help you stay safely between the lines on the road until you intend to change lanes.
  • Driver Attention Warning (DAW): Sends an alert if it detects signs of distracted or fatigued driving to remind you to pull over to rest.

With available Navigation-Based Smart Cruise Control-Curve (NSCC-C), you’ll be able to enjoy your daily drives even more. This system uses directional and navigation data to sense curves in the road and will help the Kia reduce speed—then returns the model to your standard settings.
