Well worth a closer look

The 2022 Kia Forte is a compact sedan that’s been refreshed for the new model year with a bold updated design, newly enhanced technology, powerful engine options, a manual transmission available, and fuel economy of up to 41 MPG Highway. For getting around Tuscaloosa, commuting to Birmingham, Montgomery, Huntsville, or for trips further afield, the Forte is a reminder that there really can be more to life than just SUVs.

Trim levels

There are five different trim levels for buyers to select from in the 2022 Kia Forte lineup, and they really do cater for a wide variety of different tastes and requirements. At the entry-level, the 2022 Forte is smart, affordable, and uncontroversial, but as you go up through the range the Forte gets more and more stylish, exciting, and sporty. The entry-level version of the Forte is called the FE, and from there, the lineup goes to the LXS, GT-Line, GT, and the GT Manual.

Engines and performance

2022 Kia Forte engines and performance

The majority of 2022 Kia Forte models come with a lively standard 2.0-liter inline-four under the hood that develops 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque, which sends its power to the front wheels through a CVT transmission. If you want a sportier and more exhilarating feel to your Forte you’ll want to look at the GT trim level which then ups the performance ante with a 1.6-liter turbo-four which then puts 201 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque at the disposal of the compact Kia.

A Forte GT combines the 1.6-liter engine with a standard seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle-shifters, while the GT Manual unsurprisingly gets you a six-speed manual transmission instead.

Features and equipment

Although the price difference between the entry-level Forte FE and the range-topping GT and GT Manual models isn’t huge by any measure, you don’t have to go for the highest trim levels to be able to drive away in a car that’s very nicely equipped with standard features and equipment. The FE is very attractively priced, but it still comes with a full set of power features, a rearview camera, cruise control, remote keyless entry, air conditioning, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

For very little extra money, you can upgrade to the LXS, and that gives you 16-inch alloy wheels, a split-folding rear seat, and upgraded interior trim, but the real value looks to be the GT-Line which features an enlarged 10.3-inch touchscreen, 17-inch alloys, cloth, and synthetic leather seating, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and sportier external styling.
