GT Brings New Performance Features to the Kia Forte

The new 2021 Kia Forte GT trim offers brand new high-performance features, such as standard 7-speed Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission which puts you in full control of the turbocharged engine. Optional 6-speed manual transmission is available as well for those looking for more control over their drive.

The Most Powerful Forte Yet

Standard with the 2021 Kia Forte is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that generates 147 horsepower and 132-lb-ft of torque. Take that to another level with the brand new performance-oriented Forte GT trim, which offers a 201-horsepower turbocharged engine that boasts 195-lb-ft of torque and a Sport-Tuned Dual Exhaust system.

A Variety of Driver-Assist Features

The Kia Forte is known most for its affordability. But it does that without compromising, and that’s especially true with its smart driver-assistance safety features.

High Beam Assist automatically turns your high beams on and off as it detects traffic approaching while Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist can even automatically apply brake pressure to avoid a collision from ahead. Hill Start Assist Control keeps you from slipping at the moment where you take your foot off the brake and go to press on the accelerator, particularly useful on steep inclines.

Blind-Spot Collision Warning with Rear-Cross-Traffic Alert alerts you when a vehicle enters your blind spot using an indicator light on your side rearview mirrors. Lane Departure Warning will also warn you if you drift from your lane, especially useful during long late-night drives. Lane Keeping Assist can even steer you back to safety when you drift outside your lane.

Say Good-Bye to Painful Stop-and-Go Traffic

Smart Cruise Control is what you’ve always wanted but never could have. With the Smart Cruise Control system, your Kia Forte can automatically apply brake pressure and accelerate when at low speeds during high traffic situations. No more stepping on and releasing the brake endlessly, just grab the steering wheel and enjoy the drive.

Racing-Inspired Interior Features

In the 2021 Kia Forte, new racing-inspired features are available including SOFINO synthetic leather black seat trim, flat-bottomed steering wheel, and ambient interior lighting. Ample legroom is afforded in a spacious interior designed for comfort and functionality.

Space and Comfort In Equal Measure

When you sit down in the new 2021 Kia Forte, one of the first things you’ll notice is the heated and ventilated front seats. Nothing has been spared to deliver the greatest comfort, including the 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with 2-way power lumbar support. Customize your seat and heating or cooling options to create the perfect interior experience in your Forte.

In the back, available 60/40 split seating gives you more cargo space to fit larger and longer items such as luggage, packages, skis, and snowboards while still surprisingly leaving room for two rear-seat passengers. Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control means both you and all your passengers can choose their own climate settings for the perfect, precise level of comfort for everyone.
