Tech for the Modern Driver

Kia Forte Interior Technology Features

Built to fit your active life, the Kia Forte features the latest innovative tech to keep you and your passengers connected to all your favorite music, news, and apps. Thanks to its built-in 8-inch touchscreen display with available voice-command navigation, you now can travel farther with confidence. Additional standard features include:

  • Bluetooth® wireless technology
  • Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capability
  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio

The Harman Kardon® premium audio system is also available, along with a wireless phone charger for your smartphone and other wireless devices. Additional power points are located throughout the cabin, making sure everyone in your crew can stay fully charged for the journey ahead.

Comfort and Convenience

Enjoy watching the miles slip away from inside the Forte’s quiet cabin carefully sculpted to keep everything you need close at hand. Its streamlined dashboard design is free of unnecessary buttons and knobs, while the steering-wheel-mounted controls help keep your eyes firmly on the road ahead.

Features like dual-zone automatic temperature control and a rear camera display, considered premium on rival sedans, come standard across each of the Forte’s four trims. The FE, LXS, and S also come with remote keyless entry, while the EX features Smart Key technology with Push-Button Start; this makes it easier to get out the door to face those chilly morning drives.

Interior Design and Space

Despite its classification as a compact sedan, you wouldn’t feel it by sitting inside its roomy cabin. Capable of comfortably seating up to five adult-sized passengers, the Kia Forte’s 96 cubic ft. of interior volume makes it perfect for day-to-day commuting or when loading up for a weekend road trip.

Legroom is generous, rivaling what you typically find in a midsize model. Even your taller passengers can easily manage riding in the backseat, thanks to its increased head- and shoulder room:

Loading up a week’s worth of groceries is easy thanks to the Forte’s impressive 15.3 cubic ft. of trunk space. Each trim also features a wireless trunk opener, so there’s no more fumbling over your keys in a busy parking lot. Hauling bulkier items is also made quick, thanks to the Forte’s 60/40 split-folding rear seat.
