2019 Kia Forte Scranton, PA

Compact cars seem to be falling to the wayside in the United States and some longtime brands have decided to discontinue their offerings altogether. That is not the case with Kia, which gave its beloved Forte sedan a complete makeover for 2019. The newest edition of the Kia Forte is far from boring when it comes to looks and driving dynamics. The sedan is now more sculpted than ever before, and thanks to a new suspension system, you will feel like the proud owner of a sports car.

A vehicle is more than just a stylish exterior, however. Inside the 2019 Kia Forte, you and your passengers will find a spacious cabin with plenty of room to stretch out. And the seats are super plushy and supportive so that you will still be comfortable and pain-free after being on the road for several hours! Whether you are on that road trip or just the daily commute, you can have more fun thanks to the available built-in infotainment system with audio streaming and available navigation.
