The Forte sedan is available in four trims; FE, LXS, S, and EX. A 147-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder sends power to the front wheels via a six-speed manual (FE) or CVT transmission. The Forte comes nicely equipped with standard items such as; dual-zone automatic climate control, six airbags, anti-lock brakes with brake assist, Bluetooth, trip computer and forward collision avoidance. Smart cruise control, LED taillights, power heated and ventilated seats, and a power sunroof are just some of the available features.
For 2019, the Forte hatchback has been discontinued and the sedan has been redesigned inside and out.
