2019 Kia Forte in St. Cloud, MN
The Kia Forte has always played an important role in the automaker's available lineup in the Kia of St. Cloud showroom. For the upcoming model year, the 2019 Kia Forte in St. Cloud, MN will be available with a far more athletic and refined exterior design. In fact, Kia borrowed some inspiration from the 2019 from its Stinger GT high-performance sedan. Shoppers considering a compact sedan no longer have to sacrifice style for affordability. Additionally, the powertrain of the all-new Kia Forte has been vastly upgraded to be more efficient as well as helping drivers and passengers remain connected by making the manufacturer's latest device integration technology available. The 2019 Kia Forte is scheduled to arrive at dealerships, like Kia of St. Cloud, during the latter half of 2018. Anyone who would like to see it when it's available should leave their contact information with one of our product experts today.
Among the most important changes made to the Kia Forte platform for the new model year comes with a subtle increase in overall length. Now measuring a little more than 182 inches from tip to tail, all five passengers will be more comfortable thanks to the compact sedan's additional legroom, hip room and headroom. A common complaint among earlier generations of compact sedans is a distinct lack of trunk space. The 2019 Forte offers up to 15.1 cubic-feet of cargo volume in the trunk – one of the largest such measurements in the industry segment. Another game-changing update to the 2019 Kia Forte has been made to the sedan's four doors. Everyone will have an easier time getting in and out of the completely redesigned vehicle. The previous generation of the Forte has already earned top marks for its safety profile. For the 2019 model, Kia has done the work to make the new Forte even safer.
The output of the 2019 Kia Forte remains the same. Kia has employed a second-generation 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine making 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. A continuously variable transmission is used to help drivers achieve a combined 35 miles per gallon, according to company estimates.
All available trims of the 2019 Kia Forte are equipped with an 8-inch color touchscreen that is compatible with both the Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® suites of applications. Bluetooth connectivity is also built into the infotainment system that will read incoming text messages aloud through the stereo speakers.
Kia's Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are available on certain trim grades of the 2019 Forte. These sensors continuously monitor the area surrounding the vehicle to help drivers avoid potentially dangerous situations. In addition to blind-spot monitoring and lane departure warning, the new Forte also offers enhanced systems.
