Interior Comfort Options

As far as seating surfaces go, the 2019 Kia Forte comes standard with woven cloth seat trim. This option is available in black or gray. Upgrading a couple trim levels provides a more premium black tricot cloth trim.

However, if you want the best seating option available in the Forte, you’ll want to go for the EX. This trim level comes with SOFINO leatherette, which is both comfortable and easy to clean. It’s available in three colors: black, 2-tone gray, or an even sportier 2-tone red.

Once you have your seating trim picked out, it’s time to get into position. The driver’s seat can adjust in up to ten directions, depending on trim level.

Available heated and ventilated front seats offer even more all-weather comfort. This option provides three levels of toasty comfort for chilly mornings, plus two fan speeds to keep you cool all summer long.

If you and your front passenger have different temperature preferences, the 2019 Forte is for you. It comes standard with dual-zone automatic temperature control. A rear A/C vent is also available to keep everyone comfortable.

High-Tech Connectivity

The Kia Forte comes standard with all the connectivity options drivers crave, including Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and Bluetooth® audio streaming. It’s all easy to control thanks to a standard 8-inch touchscreen display, which has a floating design above the dash line.

Higher trim levels offer more features, such as SiriusXM® Radio and HD Radio™. A navigation system is also available to help you reach new places. Voice command makes it easy to input destinations. You can use your smartphone to find points of interest and send them straight to your car.

Speaking of your smartphone, you probably want to keep it fully charged as you drive the Forte. There are plenty of charging options available, from dual 12V outlets or USB charging ports to a Qi-compatible wireless charger.

Straight lines sweep across the front dash for an expansive feel in the Kia Forte cabin. These end with aeronautically-inspired circular air vents on either side.

Of course, the cabin doesn’t just feel spacious—it is quite roomy. The 2019 Forte offers more interior and cargo space than the previous model year.
