Interior Review of the 2021 Forte

The Forte seats five passengers with a surprising amount of legroom, headroom, and elbow room for adult passengers. Those with children to chauffer through Corpus Christi don’t need to cross the Forte off of their shortlist – the rear row is equipped with two full sets of LATCH car seat connectors that are easy to locate and use.

The cloth upholstery that is standard on lower trim levels is soft, durable, and comfortable, as is the leatherette material found in upper trims. Through the trim levels, you’ll be able to customize the cabin to include offerings like dual-zone automatic climate control, ambient lighting, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, premium sound, and a wireless charging pad.

Storage is no issue with the 2021 Kia Forte. There’s plenty of room for grocery bags, backpacks, and vacation-ready suitcases alike in the 15.3-cubic-foot trunk, and plenty of thoughtful cubby spaces in the cabin ensure you can store your daily essentials away while you drive.

Performance Review of the 2021 Forte

The 2021 Forte offers an effortless, graceful ride that handles with ease around corners and curves. The Forte handles better than many of its competitors, giving it an edge in a very competitive class. Several powertrain options deliver plenty of energy for daily driving, while drivers wanting more sporty handling will be delighted by the GT trim variations.

The Forte’s base engine is a 147-horsepower 4-cylinder paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or an available continuously variable automatic. The GT trims offer a 201-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder, while paddle shifters and sport-tuned suspension make for an engaging drive. The GT M/T’s six-speed manual allows you to take charge of shifting gears, and side sills, rear spoiler, and sport grille add athletic attitude to its sleek profile. One thing is for sure, no matter how you equip your 2021 Forte, you’ll absolutely love every drive behind its wheel.
