2019 Kia Forte

Kia Forte | Des Moines, IAIf you’re looking to make a statement, the Kia Forte makes a great opening line. Outpacing the competition in terms of performance, style, and active safety, the Forte is perfectly designed to take down the streets of Des Moines, West Des Moines, and Ankeny, IA.

Smooth and fun-to-drive, the Forte breaks with the traditional conventions of what a compact sedan should be, providing a level of confidence normally reserved for larger models. At Kia of Des Moines, we’re dedicated to pairing you with a vehicle you’ll love driving for years.  To check out this car in person, find a Kia dealer near you!


Whether cruising down the highway or navigating country roads, the Kia Forte supplies agile handling with the dynamic performance you need to take on whatever the day brings.

Each of its four trim levels is equipped with an efficient 2.0L 4-cylinder which produces 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. The base FE trim can be paired with either a 6-speed manual or an Intelligent Variable Transmission with Sportmatic® that’s standard on higher trims. The result is a nimble and effortless ride that maintains well at highway speeds.


Des Moines, IA | Kia Forte

One of the main draws of compact sedans is their fuel-sipping nature, and in this area, the Kia Forte doesn’t disappoint. Thanks in part to its all-new intelligent variable transmission, the Forte is able to maintain the ideal RPM for longer stretches of time. The result is an EPA-estimated 31/41/35 city/hwy/combined MPG*.

Comfort and Technology

Even at the base trim level, the Forte is built to impress. Thanks to new standard features like dual-zone automatic temperature control, you and your passengers can enjoy the perfect temperature no matter where you’re seated inside the cabin.

Speaking of passengers, the Forte comfortably fits up to five adults while providing ample head- and legroom both in front and back. Trunk space is equally spacious with 15.3 cu. ft., outsizing most of the competition. Staying connected to your favorite music, news, and apps also makes a big upgrade, thanks in large part to the Forte’s long list of standard tech, including:

  • 8-inch touchscreen display
  • Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration
  • Bluetooth® wireless technology hands-free connectivity

Voice-command navigation and a Harman Kardon® Premium Audio are also upgrades, both available to help take the edge off your daily commute.
