“With all the improvements the new Forte brings to market for the 2019 model year, it is more than prepared to take on the toughest the segment has to offer,” Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning, KMA, said in a press release. “As one of our top-selling models, the all-new Forte follows some large footsteps, but enhancements in styling, packaging and content make it even more attractive to drivers seeking a compact sedan that can accommodate their versatile lifestyle.”

What is different with the 2019 Forte?
The most important development in the improvements made to the 2019 Kia Forte comes on the front of efficiency. Kia hasn’t changed how much power its updated engine produces, but it will go further using less gasoline. Under the hood of the 2019 Kia Forte is a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine making an estimated 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. Kia engineers estimate that the 2019 Forte will be able to record a combined fuel economy score of 35 miles per gallon.

Kia has achieved these improved fuel economy scores by using a new intelligently variable transmission that was developed by the automaker’s in-house team. The difference between the new transmission and continuously variable transmission of previous generations is may look subtle, but the resulting improvements to linear acceleration are unmistakable. Additionally, the transmission is significantly quieter than what was used before.

Overall, the 2019 Kia Forte is more than 3 inches longer than last year’s model. This will naturally make the compact sedan more comfortable for taller drivers and passengers. The trunk offers 15.1 cubic-feet of cargo volume, making it one of the largest available in the entire segment of the automotive industry.
