The third generation Kia Forte has undergone an extensive makeover for 2019. The most noticeable of changes being its exterior dimensions. Growing two inches in length and the addition of nearly an inch of width help provide much improved cabin room for drivers and passengers alike. The Forte now bears a strong family resemblance to the newly minted Kia Stinger but is based on the existing Hyundai Elantra platform providing more rigidity and a better driving experience overall. Further proving the changes are more than skin deep A new Kia engineered chain driven CVT transmission and an Atkinson cycle ultra-fuel efficient 2.0L inline four-cylinder help push highway peak gas mileage at or above 40 mpg when configured together.
