While the Kia Forte’s third generation debuted in 2019 with bold updates from end to end, Kia has continued to improve this popular compact car going into the new model year. When you visit our team at Riverside Kia in Riverside, CA for a Forte test drive, you may immediately notice that the trim levels have been shuffled. The S trim is no longer available, and the LX trim is now the LXS trim. In addition, the Forte is now available in the GT and GT-Line trims. These are only the beginning of the thoughtful improvements that have been made to the 2020 Forte.

New Equipment and Features for the 2020 Model Year

The 2020 Kia Forte EX will be available with a Special Edition package for Moreno Valley customers. If you opt to take this Forte home, your small sedan will come with a wireless charging pad for smart devices, an in-dash navigation system, red upholstery with two tones, a power sunroof, a Harman Kardon sound system, and a black rear spoiler. The 2020 Kia Forte GT’s key features include a flat-bottom steering wheel with red accent stitching, a push-button ignition with a smart key, paddle shifters, high beam assist, auto-leveling LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, and a sport-tuned dual exhaust system. This Forte is powered by a 1.6-liter turbo engine that produces 201 horsepower, and that is linked to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The GT-Line is outfitted with some of these same features, and it adds glossy black accents, 17-inch alloy wheels, daytime running lights, heated side mirrors, LED turning signals, a rear cross-traffic warning, lane change assist, a blind spot collision warning and other gear around Corona.

The 2020 Forte’s Extended Appeal

These updates to the 2020 Forte are added to the many coveted features that carry up from the 2019 model year. For example, the base engine is a 2.0-liter powertrain connected to a continuously variable transmission, and it gives you 147 horsepower.
