2019 Kia Forte FE Review and Price

The Kia Forte 2019 has a stylish and aggressive appearance, a spacious and high-quality interior.

The exterior is stylish and dynamic. The front part of the body has a new false radiator grille, diode head optics and a powerful front bumper with built-in fog lights and several sections of air intakes.

It is worth noting the presence of a raised hood and turn indicators located above the holes of the side air ducts.

The profile of the car looks stylish, modern and more presentable, which is facilitated by: an elongated hood, strongly tilted windscreen pillars, a domed roof, as well as circular wheel arches and windows that appeared for the first time in the rear pillars.

Special attention should be paid to the stylish exterior mirrors on thin “legs” and the new design of alloy wheels.

The back of the car, considering that it is a representative of the budget segment, has a fantastic appearance: spectacular led marker lights, connected to each other by a thin bar, as well as a monumental rear bumper with built-in turn indicator blocks.

There is plenty of room in the car.

The Kia Forte 2019 boasts a stylish and modern interior, designed in a simple style, as well as excellent ergonomics and an impressive set of standard and optional equipment.

The driver’s seat is represented by a stylish multi-functional steering wheel, as well as a well-read and attractive dashboard. On the center console, which is turned towards the driver, there is a capacitive display of the multimedia center, a strict block of air ducts, as well as a concise unit for adjusting the climate system, represented by several mechanical buttons and a pair of functional twists.

It is also worth noting the presence of round side deflectors of air ducts, made in the aviation style and vaguely reminiscent of an airplane turbine.

Despite the fact that the car is from a budget class, the quality of the materials used and the assembly does not cause any questions.

First-row passengers are offered comfortable seats with good side support, as well as optional ventilation and heating systems. Thanks to a wide range of adjustments, they can easily accommodate people of any complexion.

Between the seats is an armrest, a pair of cup holders and a gearbox selector.

The rear passengers are offered a fairly comfortable sofa that can easily accommodate three passengers, but only if two passengers are located, they will be able to access the folding central armrest.

In general, the interior of the new Kia Forte has become more stylish and presentable.

The car boasts a 2-liter engine that can develop a maximum of 147 HP, which provides acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 9.3 seconds. The average fuel consumption remains at 6.7 l/100 km.
