Which 2020 Kia Forte Trim is Right For Me?

The 2020 Kia Forte packs everything drivers need to conquer the streets of Portland. The base Forte FE comes equipped with a 2.0L Inline 4-cylinder engine and a 6-speed manual transmission to deliver consistent, responsive performance. With an EPA-estimated 31 MPG combined, the Kia Forte is exceptionally thrifty on gas. Premium features, like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, also make an appearance right from the onset.

Moving onto the next-level LXS trim, 16-inch wheels and a chrome exhaust tip accentuate the Forte’s sleek exterior. For smooth, hands-free acceleration, the Intelligent Variable Transmission is standard on the Forte LXS.

The GT-Line and EX models introduce an array of safety technologies to the 2020 Kia Forte, particularly Blind-Spot Collision Warning and Lane Change Assist. The Forte EX doesn’t boast the same aesthetic frills as the GT-Line, but it shines through with interior comforts, such as heated and ventilated front seats and dual-zone automatic temperature control.

Portland drivers seeking potent performance should check out the Kia Forte GT and GT Manual models, which utilize a robust 201 horsepower 1.6L Turbocharged, Inline 4-cylinder engine.

Distinguished performance goes hand-in-hand with unique styling: the GT models pull up with dual chrome exhaust tips and LED headlamps with auto-leveling. The GT Manual integrates a 6-speed manual transmission, as its name suggests, as well as more advanced safety features in Parking Distance Warning-Reverse and Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning.
