Exterior Features & Design

The 2023 Kia Forte holds onto the drastic changes made for 2022. The sportier design adds a sense of athleticism and excitement to the Forte. Other Kia models - the K5 and Stinger - paved the way for this update, and we're happy to see it. The slim and pointed headlights lead to the bold grille, drawing the eyes of anyone you pass. You'll find yourself smiling whenever you see it in your parking spot.

Choosing the 2023 Kia Forte GT-Line and GT trims add a unique flair. Some of the most noticeable changes come in the headlights. Each trim level of the 2023 Kia Forte has the newest Kia logo, signaling the new era of the brand that promotes its new design elements.

Performance Options

There's a 2.0-liter engine that makes 147 horsepower on the 2023 Kia Forte, with the Forte GT being the only trim with an upgraded engine for 201 horsepower. The base engine focuses on providing an efficient performance to handle daily driving. Choosing the upgraded engine focuses more on a thrilling driving experience to ensure you enjoy your time in the driver's seat.

An Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) is equipped on the 2023 Kia Forte. The Forte GT swaps that out for a seven-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission to provide a more dynamic driving experience. Each option is paired to front-wheel drive.
