Perhaps the best thing about the Kia Forte is that it knows what it is, but it also knows how to stretch its boundaries. Most people wouldn’t expect the Forte to potentially have a 201-horsepower engine inside it, or to have many of the technology and safety features that are reserved for premium trims on competitor’s models simply made standard. This model year’s version of the Forte has five trims, making it easy to pick a favorite. The GT-Line is the middle trim, so start your search there.
