The Forte has earned a J.D Power Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout award. This award comes on the cusps of Kia being named the highest-ranked mass-market brand in the study for the fifth consecutive year, with the Forte being recognized for its segment-topping performance in the compact car segment.
“Kia developed the third-generation Forte to take on the toughest the compact segment has to offer and the result is a world-class vehicle that raises the bar in terms of styling, packaging, and content,” said Michael Cole, the chief operating officer and EVP of Kia Motors America. “Earning back-to-back J.D Power APEAL and IQS awards, the Forte demonstrates Kia’s high level of commitment to quality and the ownership experience.” The J.D Power APEAL study measures new-vehicle owners’ overall satisfaction with their vehicles in the first 90 days of ownership. The results are divided into 10 categories: exterior, interior, storage, audio, seats, heating and ventilation, driving dynamics, power-train, visibility, and fuel economy.
The 2019 Forte takes on a more sophisticated design, transforming this vehicle with its long hood and short deck. The Forte shows off its swept-back headlights that surround the familiar tiger-nose grille. The interior is large for a compact car and the leatherette seat trim seals the deal.
Also available are a handful of safety and technology features including a remote keyless entry, tilt/telescopic steering column, heated/cooled front seats, 60/40 rear seats, eight-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and power-adjustable driver’s seat. The Apple CarPlay and Android Auto feature is a handy, and not so handy(because you don’t need your hands to access it), feature. Just plug in your phone and all your applications will show up on the touchscreen infotainment system, from here you can do all that you would do on your phone through your car. From making and receiving calls, sending and receiving text messages, to jamming out to your favorite song or podcast, the possibilities are endless!
