Introducing the 2019 Kia Forte

The 2019 Kia Forte is the definition of taking a good thing and making it better. The third-generation Forte features a more dynamic look, better fuel economy, and more technology, making one of Kia’s best-selling cars more appealing than ever.

“The compact sedan segment is highly competitive, but 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,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning, KMA. “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.”

 

Set to begin arriving this fall, the 2019 Kia Forte is a feast for the eyes and a comfortable ride. Perhaps the most noticeable difference behind the wheel comes from its second-generation 2.0-liter Nu four-cylinder engine, which offers an EPA-estimated 41 mpg on the highway for the Forte FE and 40 mpg on the highway for the Forte LXS, S, and EX when equipped with the available Intelligent Variable Transmission.*

 

Speaking of tech, the Forte will be standard at all trims with Driver Attention Warning (DAW), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), and Lane Departure Warning (LDW), providing more peace of mind than ever.

Kia Tops J.D. Power Initial Quality Study

For four years in a row now, Kia has topped the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study as the best non-premium brand in the auto industry. This streak was extended in the 2018 IQS, in which Kia scored an average 72 problems per 100 vehicles over the first 90 days of ownership, proving once again the brand’s reliability and commitment to quality.

“Ranking No. 1 among all mass market brands for four consecutive years leaves no doubt as to the world-class quality and craftsmanship instilled in every car and SUV that Kia builds,” said Michael Cole, chief operating officer, and EVP, Kia Motors America. “With two segment winners and four additional models finishing in the top three of their respective segments, the evidence of Kia’s progression and focus on the ownership experience is overwhelming.”

In addition to another year atop the IQS for the brand as a whole, the Kia Sorento and Kia Rio topped their respective segments in terms of initial quality., The Kia Optima, Kia Sportage, and Kia Sedona all ranked second in their segments, and the Kia Forte ranked third, confirming Kia’s powerhouse standing.
