Exterior – 2019 Kia Forte
This model was given a pretty complete refresh a couple of years ago, but a few new changes for the 2019 model year are indeed welcome. This year’s Forte looks a bit like the more expensive Kia Stinger, with a longer hood, more aggressive front end and fascia, and fastback-style rear roofline that differentiates it from previous years’ versions. The lower trims come with 15-inch wheels, heated exterior mirrors, mud guards, and a rear spoiler. Ground clearance is 5.3-inch, and the vehicle is just over 70 inches in width. The base trim is offered in a half-dozen exterior colors including Snow Pearl White, Garnet Red, and Aurora Black Pearl. The S version trim comes with larger 16-inch alloy wheels. KIA has reshaped the exterior contours a bit, but the overall shape of the sedan model keeps it squarely in the middle of the compact vehicle class. Contact the Battleground dealership for the latest offers and specials to Winston Salem shoppers on the all-new Forte models.

Powertrain – Kia Forte specs near Winston Salem NC
The Forte is powered by a four-cylinder engine rated at 147 horsepower. That doesn’t sound like a lot of power, but this is a rather lightweight vehicle, and although it won’t break any acceleration records, it does get up to speed quite smoothly. Both manual and automatic transmission are available. The 2018 EX sedan came with the same size engine but with a horsepower boost to 164, and this version is expected to return during the 2019 model year. The SX hatchback offered last year came with a turbocharged 1.6L engine rated at 201 horsepower, and shoppers will want to check the availability of this option for 2019. All trims are front-wheel drive. Handling is exceptional, and the Forte is very easy to park in tight spaces. When idling, the Forte is one of the quietest vehicles on the market. In fact, it’s difficult to know if the car is even running thanks to superior sound dampening.
