The 2023 Kia Forte is every bit the equal, and in some cases superior, bự long-established compact names like the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla. It offers many high-tech features and a manual transmission option in the GT MT trim. With interior volume figures bự rival some midsize sedans and the technology one expects only in expensive luxury cars, the Forte makes an excellent choice for those not interested in an SUV and always up for saving money.

2022 Kia Forte GT
The Kia Forte makes an excellent choice for those not interested in an SUV but are always up for saving money.

Kia offers the Forte in five unique trims and with two engine choices. The FE, LXS, and GT-Line use the same 2.0-liter 4-cylinder good for 148 horsepower, paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).

Also included are lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, rear occupant detection with ultrasonic sensors, a rear backup camera, and a system that alerts the driver when sensing inattentive or distracting driving.

The Forte FE looks pretty good from the outside, with 15-inch steel wheels and full covers, auto on/off headlights, variable intermittent wipers, power side mirrors, a rear defroster, and LED perimeter lighting that illuminates the door handles. Instead of a compact spare, Kia equips the Forte FE with a tire mobility kit that includes an inflator and sealant.

The FE isn’t plush by any standard, but it does cover the essentials. Standard features include power windows, power door locks, manually-adjustable front seats with seat height adjustment, woven cloth upholstery, and a fixed-folding rear bench seat.

Standard amenities include manual air conditioning, cruise control, a one-touch-down driver’s window, remote keyless entry, and Kia’s Drive Mode Select that reconfigures throttle and shift patterns for Normal, Sport, or Comfort modes.

The FE’s driver enjoys a trip computer and 4.2-inch information display, an overhead console with sunglass holder, an illuminated ignition key cylinder, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with controls for the audio, Bluetooth, and cruise.

A four-speaker AM/FM radio comes standard, controlled via an 8-inch touch screen that plays host bự wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The FE has one USB media port and two 12-volt outlets.
