Also adding to its appeal is the great fuel economy, making the Forte an excellent commuter. The team here at Huffines Kia McKinney would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about what the Forte has to offer you.

Underneath the hood of most new Forte vehicles is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder making 147 horsepower. This is the perfect amount of power to blend performance and efficiency in a vehicle of this size. A six-speed manual transmission is standard. There is also a quick-shifting continuously variable transmission option that gives you a smooth drive throughout McKinney, TX and beyond. There is a Forte GT model to consider as well. This option is powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine making an exhilarating 201 horsepower.

As for technology, you'll find an eight-inch touchscreen is standard across the board. Other great standard tech features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a USB port, and Bluetooth. Select models get even more to love, including satellite radio, extra USB ports, a premium sound system, and HD radio.

In total, you will have five different variations of the Forte to consider. The entry-level model, known as the FE, is very well-equipped and offers great value. You'll find all of those great standard tech features, plus driver aids such as lane keep assist, lane departure warning, forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and a driver drowsiness monitor.

At the very top of the line lives the GT model. In addition to its more powerful engine, this model has things like a sport-tuned suspension and dual exhaust ports. It even has a more athletic look, coming with LED projector lights on the outside and ambient lighting inside. Also found in the cabin are steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
