What's New for the 2023 Kia Forte

The Kia Forte got a major overhaul in 2022, and the 2023 version maintains the same contemporary, sporty look. The 2022 version received many exciting new updates, including a refreshed look with a new grille, new wheel designs, an optional 10.25-inch touchscreen, and standard wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. The 2023 model carries over these changes for the new lineup!

Performance Features

The Forte is available with two different engine types. The standard engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder model that offers the ideal combination of 147 horsepower and fuel efficiency. That way, Hyannis drivers can save money at the gas station but still enjoy a speedy pickup and plenty of passing power.

If you're looking for even more power for tough inclines and high-speed freeway driving, check out the GT trim level and higher. They come with a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that adds a boost in horsepower - up to 201 horsepower, to be exact. Whether you're getting up to speed on the interstate or simply enjoying a straight stretch, the Forte has your back.

With the available engine, you'll also get a sport-tuned suspension; by creating a more responsive, dynamic feel, this system creates an exciting experience. With the paddle shifters, you can inject some racing-inspired fun into the commute.

Smart Safety

Every Forte is built around a tough, rigid shell; more than half of its content is made with high-strength steel. Not only does this frame deliver extra protection, but it also creates a more stable ride. The higher rigidity also reduces vibrations, so you'll hear less noise as you drive. To provide cushioning in the case of an impact, the Forte comes with six standard airbags. Each one is equipped with a sensor to ensure safe, effective deployment.

No matter where Barnstable drivers go, the Forte's electronic stability control and traction control are always active. They monitor the status of each wheel - if one of them starts to slip, the Forte corrects the issue to improve traction. This is essential when you're traveling in the rain or snow.

When you need to transition from stopped to moving on an incline, the standard hill-start assist system kicks in automatically. It keeps the brakes active as you transition your foot to the accelerator. In doing so, it keeps the car from rolling and enables you to take off safely.

With Kia Drive Wise, Falmouth, MA, car buyers get a collection of technology-based alerts to boost their safety. Standard features like forward-collision avoidance with automated emergency braking and lane-keeping technology actively work to keep you safe. And with the automatic high beams and smart cruise control, you can keep your attention on the road.

Intuitive Technology

Every Forte trim level comes standard with a beautiful touchscreen display; touch the surface to manage your entertainment and the available navigation. This system is wirelessly compatible with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®; your apps are displayed on the screen, allowing you to access your phone's music, maps, and communication features.

For even more convenience, opt for the available voice-command navigation. That way, you can ask the Forte for directions while keeping your focus on the drive. With the available UVO eServices, your Forte connects to an app on your phone - locate the car in a parking spot, find local points of interest, or schedule your next tune-up.
