2019 Kia Forte Near Conway, AR | Steve Landers Kia

The Forte is a member of Kia's compact family and it has been always been a good-looking car. But now, it's got a design that is influenced by its sister the Kia Stinger. The 2019 Kia Forte has been redesigned and is badder, yet more sophisticated, than ever. Dare we say this is Kia's coolest compact car yet? Yes, we do. 

Coming soon to Steve Landers Kia, about half an hour from Conway, keep scrolling for more on the 2019 Kia Forte.

There will be three grades of the 2019 Kia Forte available: LX, S and EX. Pricing has not yet been released, but the 2018 model starts at $16,800.

All three grades are powered by a 2.0L I-4 Multi-Port Injection engine. It's rated to deliver 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque.

In addition to the 2019 Forte being the coolest Kia compact yet, it also features the first in-house designed and built Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) and introduces a brand new line of Smart Stream technologies to give better fuel efficiency for an estimated 35 combined MPG for the LX grade. Fuel efficiency ratings for the other two trims have not yet been determined. 

Back to why we're digging the look of this car. It has the signature tiger-nose grille, like every Kia, but it's more muscular overall. It has an aggressive black lower valance, creases in the long hood and Stinger-esque headlamps for a sporty fastback look.

Inside, the cabin is comfortable yet advanced and stylish. There's a wide dashboard with clean lines that gives a sense of a larger space. An 8-inch color touchscreen is standard in every 2019 Forte model with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth and more. Plus, there's an available 320-watt premium Harman Kardon sound system with a unique speaker hole pattern on the door panels and throughout the cabin for surprisingly crisp audio.
