Kia Forte Exterior Design

Standard features such as high beam assist and auto headlight control help keep you safe on the road, no matter the situation. And for those who prefer larger wheels, the Kia Forte has you covered. The wheels range from 15" to 18" alloy wheels on the GT trim. Stop by Bob Utter Kia to see all the small details that make the 2023 Kia Forte a great-looking and modern vehicle.

Kia Forte Performance

The 2023 Kia Forte has two engine options. The base option is a 2.0L four-cylinder engine that produces a respectable 147hp. It also allows for 31 mpg city and 41 mpg highway. This is partially thanks to its innovative IVT (Intelligent Variable Transmission). This option is fantastic and would please any owner as their daily driver.

But, for those who prefer more power, there is the Kia Forte GT and GT-Manual. As the name would imply, the "GT" option comes with an automatic transmission while the "GT-Manual'' includes a manual one. The 1.6L turbocharged engine found in these variants offers an incredible 201hp. The GT model also includes paddle shifters for its 7-speed automatic transmission, while the GT-Manual includes a 6-speed transmission. But you can still expect about 31 mpg combined on the GT-Manual and 35 mpg combined on the GT. This is still more than plenty for most, and many find it to be a great balance between power and efficiency.


The 2023 Kia Forte is loaded with amazing tech features. The first thing you'll notice when you step inside the vehicle is the premium 8" or 10.25" touchscreen infotainment system. The larger screen offers built-in navigation, but each model supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. And, to make it better, support for these platforms comes standard on every model! You can also upgrade the standard four-speaker sound system to a premium Harman Kardon system that competes with any other sedan on the road. If you are looking for a compact sedan that is truly "future-proofed" in terms of technology, the 2023 Kia Forte should be at the top of your list.


Kia has always tried to bring incredible value to the table with their vehicles. The 2023 Kia Forte is no exception to this rule and begins at a very aggressive starting MSRP of $19,490. Pricing is dependent upon the trim and features you select in your new vehicle, so feel free to stop by Bob Utter Kia near Plano to see just how far your dollar can go with a brand-new Kia Forte!

Interior Design

If you're going to drive with all that performance underneath the trunk, then you should have an interior design that matches your vehicle's capabilities. The available heated and ventilated seats will keep the cool days warm and vice-versa. So, you and the first-row passenger will have the pleasure of traveling in more comfort during your commute. The ten-way adjustable driver's seat provides the perfect driving position for you, and 60/40 split seating creates the best-in-class cargo room to store more equipment for the journey.

Kia Forte Safety Features

Kia has always had safety at the top of its list. The 2023 Forte fully embodies this sentiment and is loaded with features to help keep Tom Bean and Denison, TX drivers safe in every aspect of driving. You can expect forward collision assistance with pedestrian detection, lane-keep assistance, rear occupant warnings, and more to come standard on your 2023 Forte. That isn't all, though. Available features like adaptive cruise control and blind-stop collision avoidance assistance help reduce fatigue and completely minimize the risk of being in an accident.

Trim Levels


The LX may be the base trim model of the 2023 Kia Forte, but it is nothing to scoff at. It still includes a keyless entry system with push-to-start, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, and active lane-keeping assistance.


The LXS offers a few sensible upgrades over the LX. It introduces 60/40 folding rear seats, new paint color options, and a few additional safety features.


The GT-Line includes many great features in the GT models but without the turbocharged engine. This makes it a great choice for someone who wants the best feature set but doesn't necessarily need the more powerful engine.


The GT introduces the 1.6L turbocharged engine that offers one of the best driving experiences of any compact sedan on the road today. It also includes many incredible features like options for the premium sound system, standard rear AC vents, and much more.


The GT-Manual is the perfect vehicle for someone who prefers driving with a manual transmission but still wants to take advantage of the new technological advancements. It offers everything you would find in the Kia Forte GT, but has a manual transmission instead.
