2020 Kia Forte Performance | Mission, TX
Medical professionals like doctors and nurses have seen firsthand the dangers of driving in unsafe vehicles and so prioritize safety technology above all else in new vehicle purchases. Self-starting entrepreneurs, on the other hand, need to stay connected at all times and thus look for a vehicle with great infotainment features and attractive exterior and interior styling to impress potential clients. The 2020 Kia Forte delivers on both needs — and promises reliable performance and impressive fuel economy for keeping costs low.
Under the hood of the new 2020 Kia Forte sits a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. You can pair this engine with either a six-speed manual transmission or an intelligent variable transmission with Sportmatic®. Either way, the engine serves up 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque.
The Forte is known for its high efficiency. For the ultimate fuel economy, go with the variable transmission model, which yields up to 31 mpg in the city and 41 on the highway.* If you’d prefer the cost savings and control of the manual model, fuel economy is still a respectable 27 mpg in the city and 37 on the highway.*
Need more power from the 2020 Forte? Opt for the 2020 Kia Forte GT, which is motivated by a turbocharged 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine that produces 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Again, you get your choice of transmissions: either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic with paddle shifters.
If you go the automatic route, you can expect up to 27 mpg in the city and 35 on the highway.* Manual models yield a little less fuel efficiency, clocking in at 25 mpg in the city and 32 on the highway.* The Forte GT sits on 18-inch two-tone wheels, which can be wrapped in optional Michelin® Pilot Sport 4 Summer Tires. You can also opt for available large front brakes for increased performance.
