Are you a San Diego dweller in the market for a compact sedan? The 2016 Kia Forte delivers more than you might expect, from its spacious and modern cabin right on through its myriad interior comforts to its high-tech infotainment features, which are available to make your ride as enjoyable as possible. Here at your trusted local Kearny Pearson Kia, we understand the lineup of new Kia cars can be overwhelming for some of our valued customers—after all, there are so many great options to choose from. Here’s what you need to know about the 2016 Kia Forte that might help you make up your mind.

The 2016 Kia Forte is available in two different trim levels: LX and EX. On the base-level trim, 2016 Kia Forte LX, a standard 1.8-liter, in-line-four engine runs the show, delivering 145 horsepower and 130 lb-ft of torque alongside excellent fuel efficiency. With this trim level, you will enjoy sophisticated engine tech like dual continuously variable valve timing and multi-point fuel injection, as well as your choice between either a standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional electronically controlled six-speed automatic overdrive transmission featuring Sportmatic. Meanwhile, the 2016 Kia Forte EX upgrades you to a 2.0-liter, in-line four that increases your output to 173 horsepower and 154 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain features gasoline direct injection and the electronically controlled transmission as standard.

Inside, the 2016 Kia Forte keeps you in the loop with tech features like turn-by-turn driving instructions featuring advanced voice recognition and the Kia brand’s lauded UVO eServices infotainment system, which allows you to manage your music and make hands-free calls by syncing with your compatible mobile device. Sophisticated tech extends into the realm of safety, too—the rear-camera display helps you see everything that might be lurking in your blind spots when you shift into reverse. Of course, safety is always a top priority for Kia. The 2016 Kia Forte is also decked out with an advanced airbag system, a reinforced body to protect you in the event that a crash or collision is unavoidable, and new innovations like front active headrests.
