The 2021 Kia Forte which is out on sale now, amalgamates everything required for a compact and competent sedan- sleek style, advanced technology, state-of-the-art connectivity, exceptional fuel efficiency and space for everyone. The 2021 Kia Forte is offered in five distinct trims and the range kickstarts from $17,890 for the FE and goes all the way to $22,790 for the top-spec GT version.

Sadly, AWD is still not available in the Kia Forte, it comes equipped with FWD configuration. Today, the sedan faces firm competition from the likes of segment-leading cars like the Toyota Corolla, the Honda Civic and the Mazda 3. Here’s our take on the 2021 Kia Forte Compact sedan.

"Its starting price is thousands less than segment leaders such as the Honda Civic, the Mazda 3, and the Toyota Corolla, but the Kia delivers similar features, excellent fuel economy, and plenty of style." -CarAndDriver

The Kia Forte is a much anticipated and compelling compact sedan, that is fashionable and adds high-value features for its price. The Stinger-inspired sedan is a mix of compactness, style, affordability, and usefulness. The Kia Forte sedan offers us two engine options, a 2.0L four-cylinder arranged to a CVT, that is sluggish to drive with just 147 hp of power output while the turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder isn't exciting either but the fuel economy of 41 mpg on the highway is surely impressive.

It carries over completely unchanged from the 2020 model and packs features such as Daytime Running Lights, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution, 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support, Heated front seats and Ventilated front seats, Dual-zone automatic temperature control, and so on.

2021 Kia Forte Buying Advice

We will recommend the EX trim from the Kia Forte lineup. Apart from being priced right, it packs features including heated front seats with power adjustment, a top-rated infotainment system, and all safety features that a compact sedan can have at this price point. It is well balanced and equipped with trim. The 2020 Kia Forte received a score of 3.5 out of five for predicted reliability in the JD Power report. Mechanically, the Civic is ranked higher than the Jetta and the Mazda 3, and the CVT automatic transmissions are highly reliable with next to no maintenance.

The Mazda 3’s 2.5L engine beats every other rival in the engine capacity offering. The others find themselves together with 2.0L powerheads. Mazda 3's 0-60 mph time of 8.2 proves to be a tad better than that offered by the Kia Forte. The base Kia Forte is the slowest of the lot. The Civic follows the Mazda 3 in terms of acceleration but it has a poor braking distance.

We like that Kia has stuck with physical controls for the ventilation system, making it simple to adjust these settings on the move.-CarBuzz

The Kia Forte seats up to 5 passengers comfortably regardless of whether you're seated up front or on the rear bench. The Kia Forte offers a steal deal for the state-of-the-art technology that is offered at such a cheap price. Android Auto, Apple CarPlay smartphone integration and Bluetooth come standard in all the trims. The Forte maintains a standard 8.0-inch infotainment system.

2021 Kia Forte Sedan Cockpit Area

It's easy to find a good seating position thanks to the generous range of the steering wheel and driver's seat adjustments. Starting with the base trim, you’ll get a lot of standard features and the GT-Line and the GT trim are equipped with sports seats. The Forte offers a very minimalistic and top-notch design.

A wireless smartphone charging pad is optional on the GT-Line, EX, and GT trim.

We do wish the Forte had a bit more rear-seat legroom, and its ride can be a little too stiff at times. Still, there's much to like about the Forte, especially given its price and feature list.  -Edmunds.com

Kia will pass on bringing out any changes to the exterior of the Kia Forte as it was completely redesigned for the 2019 model year. It is going to maintain and carry over the previous models’ look and charm. The Kia Forte looks like any other compact sedan in its segment but offers a wide variety of exterior features and options to make it an appealing choice.

The base Mazda 3 priced the same as the top end Kia Forte.

Overall, the Mazda 3 does beat the Kia Forte in terms of look, styling, acceleration, and powerful engine. However, if the features of the base Mazda 3 feel a little underwhelming, opting for the Kia Forte GT trim can prove to be a good option.

My new Kia Forte

Pros - Plenty of features for money. Strong fuel economy. Premium styling.

Cons - Boring to drive. Rear seats a bit cramped.

Most bang for the least buck! Honestly speaking, I'm quite happy I chose the Kia Forte over the popular Civics and Corollas. It has so much to offer for Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM radio, a large 8' touchscreen, wireless charging pad and a host os driver assist systems are all standard across the Forte. Though the engine is not that peppy, it does offer good fuel economy the tech-savy me than the Japanese brands at a lower price. Android Auto, numbers for everyday driving. Absolutely satisfied since the last year!

Best in the class

Pros - Smooth power delivery, gas mileage, spacious interior

Cons - No LED headlights, transmission

Excluding CVT everything about drivetrain is brilliant. Gas mileage is also a plus. Excluding CVT everything about drivetrain is brilliant. Dual-zone automatic climate control and heated seats All the modern amenities and comfortable seats were all I needed and it has both of them. It looks the best in snow white pearl color. Blind spot warning, smart cruise control, lane keep assist, and all other features, it has them all. Yes, I paid a little extra for some of the features but one cannot compromise on safety. I wish CVT was better. $22K They gave me the best deal I could ask for. I’ll be buying from here again

Good but not the best

Pros - Manual, comfortable, cool tech

Cons - Handling

Manual is still the king. I don’t know why people are avoiding it. No automatic can match the manual when it comes to driving experience and that is a fact. The thing it lacks is good handling otherwise it could have been a great daily driver. Manual is still the king. I don’t know why people are avoiding it. No automatic can match the manual when it comes to driving experience and that is a fact. Bluetooth wireless technology or a feature along the lines. Now, I can freely talk to someone without getting a ticket!! I am very impressed with the interior. Surprisingly big cargo space paired with a well thought out interior and it is a perfect vehicle for long trips as well as cities. Kia does have a nice variety of color options available, unlike Toyota. Originally I wanted the gravity grey but I ended up buying fire orange and trust me it looks great. Feature list is long and all of those features have been working well so far. So, safety should be of no concern. Again all the features have been working well. Not a bad deal. Not a great experience of I’m telling the truth. I had high expectations after reading so many good reviews but they turned out to be worst than the average.

Best in the class

Excluding CVT everything about drivetrain is brilliant. Gas mileage is also a plus.

Good but not the best

Manual is still the king. I don’t know why people are avoiding it. No automatic can match the manual when it comes to driving experience and that is a fact. The thing it lacks is good handling otherwise it could have been a great daily driver.

Could have been better

It is a fun little car to drive. It is no stinger but it packs a punch. Even though it comes with a CVT transmission it is surprisingly good at imitating gears. All in all, not a bad car to drive.

2020 Kia Forte

I choose a sedan in a world where SUVs have become ever more popular because of a simple reason: fuel economy. I was not looking for performance and it still doesn't matter that it is slow but I will say this- CVT is trash.
