Specs and Features in the 2020 Kia Forte

Marked by a slight alteration in exterior styling that almost resembles the Stinger, the 2020 Forte is a force to be reckoned with. The body features sleek body lines as well as the signature tiger-nose grille. Trim levels for 2020 reflect a variety of options, with choices that include the base FE, midrange LXS, sporty GT Line, luxurious EX or the performance-enhanced GT. You’ll notice these trim levels are similar to the choices offered in the 2019 Forte, except the GT Line replaces the S trim from last year. Opting for the performance-enhanced GT gifts drivers with impressive performance and powertrain features like 201 horsepower, 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, and an independent rear suspension. The GT trim also comes with sporty 18-inch wheels as well.

While we don’t know for sure yet, there is speculation that the 2020 Forte may also come in a hatchback option as well. You may recall that the 2018 Kia Forte5 was the last Forte to feature a hatchback body style, but it may return in the near future. Some of the other specs and features you can expect to find in the 2020 Forte include:

  • Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
  • Power sunroof
  • Windshield wiper de-icer
  • UVO eServices with 8-inch touchscreen
  • Voice-Command Navigation
  • Harman/Kardon® premium audio system
  • Rear-Camera Display
  • Wireless phone charger
  • And much more!

The 2020 Forte is expected to arrive at dealerships sometime around mid-summer of 2019. Until then, get the latest rundown by contacting our team here at Hometown Kia or browse our current 2019 Forte options!
