For Kia, the 2019 model year is an exciting one, with a host of all-new vehicles receiving major overhauls or slight refreshers as the brand takes a giant leap forward after the introduction of the Stinger. The Stinger has changed everything for Kia, and now vehicles like the 2019 Kia Forte near Providence RI is feeling the effects. How so? Well, when Kia redesigned it for its third generation (of which the 2019 model year is its first), it did so with Stinger design cues in mind, and now the Kia Forte has a more sophisticated and aggressively sporty design than ever before.
Along with its aesthetic redesign, the all-new Forte has received a number of new features and has made a number of preexisting features standard where they used to be available. We’ll dive into those new features down below, along with some of the exciting specs & features that make up the new 2019 Kia Forte.
Powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, the 2019 Kia Forte is the first vehicle on the line up to utilize an Intelligent Variable Transmission that was designed and built right in house. It is just the introduction of a whole line of technologies that Kia is calling Smart Stream, all of which are designed to improve fuel efficiency. For the 2019 Forte, Kia has targeted a combined efficiency rating of 35 mpg, though EPA estimations have not been confirmed at the time of this page’s creation.
Some of those new and standard features we mentioned earlier include an 8” display audio touchscreen, Android Auto & Apple CarPlay compatibility, and a host of Advanced Driver Assistance technologies. Those systems include Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Forward Collision Avoidance, Lane Departure Warning, Smart Cruise Control, and many others.
