A six-way manually adjustable driver’s seat, tilt-and-telescoping steering column and outside temperature display are standard for all Forte models. Available features include heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with two memory settings, a ventilated driver’s seat and dual-zone climate control.
The 2016 Kia Forte is offered with a capable engine lineup. Both a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic transmission are available, and all models are front-wheel drive.

User Reviews for 2016 Kia Forte
by Stephanie on September 21, 2018
Absolutely love this app. Keeps me on track on oil change, inspections. Thanks!!!!
"Love it!!! Wish it was more comfortable on seats like the Optima but that was more $$$. But if I was to purchase another vehicle again it will be a Kia for sure. For the price, it's a good buy but they should put the spare tire included in price because more buy the 4 cylinder cars and there cheap on gas."
"It's a nice daily driver I have to say. It gets pretty good gas mileage however make sure to pay attention to the details of the car while running it. Seems that many people with the same vehicle complained with same type of problem being that the car has a shake in the engine while sitting idle and running so now I have recieved notification that that Kia is doing some type of recall because of the emission not being optimized as it should be in other wards come time for a smog you just might not pass."
That it's pretty basic nothing too fancy.
The most basic bit at the same time like a mini version or the Kia Optima which om truly a fan of.
Good it's hot that pick up and go. Pretty fast little car.
It's not . It isn't very spacious
It's good on the gas mileage and has an eco feature that helps with gas mileage.
