The Kia Forte is a great small sedan for drivers for many reasons. Five different trim levels exist, making it easy to find one that matches your needs. No matter which model you end up with, your Forte will be fun to drive and full of great features.

What you'll find underneath the hood of the Forte depends on which trim level you pick. Most models use a 2.0L four-cylinder that will give them 147-horsepower along with 132 lb-ft of torque. Sticking with the FE means getting a six-speed manual transmission standard and the option of going with a continuously variable transmission. Other models with this engine get the CVT automatically.

The Forte GT goes with a turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder engine instead. With this underneath the hood, you'll be getting 201-horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. GT models get to choose between a six-speed manual and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
