Spacious, stylish, and tremendous value

The 2022 Kia Forte is a compact sedan that can get you fuel economy ratings as high as 41 MPG on the highway but without sacrificing anything in terms of style, space, capability, and performance. For trips around Gainesville, Buford, Cumming, Duluth, or further afield in Atlanta and Athens, the Kia Forte is the small sedan that proves there’s far more to the auto market than just SUVs at the moment.

Trim levels

Kia offers the 2022 Forte in five great trim levels that make this is a car that will appeal to a wide variety of different buyers and circumstances. Entry-level versions of the Forte are modern, affordable, and uncontroversial, but your new Forte can be as stylish, exciting, and sporty as you want it to be as you go up through the other four trim levels. The base version of the compact Kia sedan is the Forte FE, and then the range goes to the LXS, GT-Line, and GT before you get to the top-of-the-range GT Manual.

Engines, performance, and fuel economy

2022 Kia Forte performance and fuel economy

The first three trim levels in the 2022 Kia Forte lineup feature a standard 2.0-liter inline-four powerplant that produces 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque, which then goes to the front wheels through a CVT transmission. If you want a sportier and more exhilarating driving experience the GT and GT Manual trim levels deliver all that and more, courtesy of a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that gives the Forte 201 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque to play with.

If you opt for a GT version of the 2022 Kia Forte, the 1.6-liter turbo-four comes with a standard seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle-shifters, but it probably won’t come as much of a surprise to learn that the GT Manual replaces that with a six-speed manual for a sportier driving experience. The most fuel-efficient version is the base FE which the EPA rates at 31 mpg in the city, 41 mpg on the highway, and 35 combined, but the more popular LXS and GT-Line trims are still impressive with ratings of 29/39/33 mpg, respectively.

Features and equipment

The difference between the price of an entry-level Forte FE and top-of-the-range GT and GT Manual models isn’t massive, but even so, you still don’t need the top trim levels to feel like you’re in a car that’s generously equipped with standard features and equipment. The entry-level FE has an extremely attractive starting MSRP, but it still boasts power features, a rearview camera, cruise control, remote keyless entry, air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that’s Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible.

Pay a touch more to upgrade to the LXS version of the 2022 Forte, and then you’ll be able to enjoy standard 16-inch alloy wheels, a split-folding rear seat and upgraded interior trim. However, the real sweet-spot for value for money could be the GT-Line which sits smack bang in the middle of the lineup and comes with a massive 10.3-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system, larger 17-inch alloys, cloth and synthetic leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver’s seat and sportier external styling cues.
