See how the 2019 Kia Forte trims appeal to a variety of shoppers

When young professional shoppers come into our dealership, they generally fall into the following categories: tech savvy, style-forward, active, or safety-minded. Since the Kia Forte is a popular sedan for this segment, we'll look at each of the four trims (FE, LXS, S, and EX) and tell you which ones are great fits for the different shopper types.

The Tech Savvy Shopper

We live in a world that is filled with technology and you want your vehicle to mirror that. The fantastic thing is that the 2019 Kia Forte base model comes with a lot of standard tech:

  • An 8-inch touchscreen
  • Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™
  • Rearview Camera
  • Forward collision avoidance assist
  • Forward collision warning
  • Lane keeping assist

With a lot of brands, it's hard to find a selection like this one the base model, so we tip our hats to the Forte!

The Style-Forward Shopper

There's nothing wrong with caring about style, and if you love looking your best then the Forte S has your back. The S is the second highest Forte trim and it has beautiful 17-inch alloy wheels and leather covering the steering wheel and gear shift. You can also add on the Premium Package and get a power sunroof and LED headlights. With the sunroof open you can play music and get everyone's attention as you pull up to your favorite restaurant looking sharp, and with the LED lights you'll have better visibility for your drive home after the sun goes down.

The Active Shopper

We get it. You lead a busy and active life that involves running around the beautiful parks in the Mckinney area, going to the CrossFit gyms, or even moonlighting with your band. With the Forte LXS, you'll get a little more cargo flexibility for all your gear, thanks to the standard 60/40 split seats.

The Safety-Minded Shopper

You have excellent driving habits, but you aren't afraid of getting some technological assistance to help avoid a collision. With the top EX trim, you get the previously mentioned advanced safety features along with lane change assist and blind spot warning also standard. If you want to add on a few more technologies, you can get the following:

  • High-beam assist
  • Smart cruise control
  • Parking distance warning for when you reverse

Which one sounds like the right choice for you? Whether you know or are deciding between two options, stop into our dealership for a test drive!
