2020 Kia Forte: Specs, Features & Trim Comparison

2020 kia forte trim comparison specs features

The Kia Forte has long been known for charming looks and amazing bang for your buck, and absolutely nothing has been altered from that formula in the previous ten years. Regardless of just being ten years old, we’re currently on the 3rd generation of the Kia Forte. You may discover that the 2020 Kia Forte has even more of a stylish look than in years past. That’s no mistake as it was developed by the same person that brought us the amazing Kia Stinger. So, is the brand-new Forte a good-looking economy car or a mini Stinger? Honestly, it’s a little of both.

Performance Highlights

There are 2 powerplant options scattered over 6 trims on the 2020 Forte. The base engine is a 2.0L Inline 4-cylinder that generates 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft. of torque. It can be paired with either a 6-speed standard transmission or an Intelligent Variable Transmission (Kia’s name for CVT). The 6-speed returns as much as 37mpg on the highway while the IVT returns approximately 41 miles per gallon. If you upgrade the GT trim you’ll get a smaller engine yet more horsepower. The new Kia Forte GT is powered by a 1.6L turbo 4-cylinder engine that generates 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft. of torque. It can be paired to either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed dual-clutch auto, with each returning 32mpg and 35 miles per gallon respectively.


As we stated earlier, the designer of the brand-new Kia Forte also developed the new Stinger, and there are definitely some design resemblances on the GT trim. The Kia Stinger FE is the base model and comes outfitted with such features as 15-inch wheels, projector-beam headlights, and daytime running lights. If you’re searching for more than simply an eye-catching commuter then you can go with 18-inch wheels, LED headlamps, LED DRL, LED back combination taillights, a sunroof, and double chrome exhaust outlets. Inside you’ll find an 8-inch touch-screen display, 6-way adjustable driver’s seat, 12-volt outlets, power windows, and power locks. You can upgrade to heated/cooled front seats, rear A/C vents, LED inside lights, and dual USB ports.

Technology Highlights

No matter which trim you pick you’ll be enveloped by an abundance of tech. Navigation, wireless mobile phone charging, and a parking distance warning are all options on the ’20 Kia Forte. The impressive thing is all the basic safety tech that is installed on every Forte. The features include Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Departure Warning, and Lane Keeping Assist. Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Change Assist, and Smart Cruise Control are simply a few of the excellent technologies that are optional on the new Kia Forte.

Came in today for the scheduled maintenance on my vehicle. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. They answered all my questions and took care of some minor issues covered by warranty. When it was finished they were even kind enough to drive my car home for me and drop it off. I will definitely be back.
