What Makes the 2024 Kia Forte the Ideal Daily Driver?


While many automakers are limiting or cutting sedans out of their lineups, Kia is making a stand with the 2024 Forte. Its comfortable interior and wallet-friendly gas mileage make this sleek and elegant car an attractive daily driver. Adding to its appeal is a powerful engine that provides plenty of speed. The Forte’s precise handling makes driving the car in and around Corinth, Texas, fun. Read as our Huffines Kia Corinth team shares more details about what makes the 2024 Kia Forte a great option.

Excellent Fuel Economy

Driving a vehicle every day makes good gas mileage vital. Saving on fuel is essential; luckily, the Kia Forte fits the bill perfectly. You can choose from one of several transmissions with the 2024 Kia Forte, which affects the car’s gas mileage. The base LX trim has an intelligent variable transmission (IVT) and gets 30 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway, with a combined mpg of 34. The LXS trim offers the same transmission and gets 28 mpg in the city, 39 mpg on the highway, and 32 mpg combined.

The GT-Line trim also has the IVT and offers miles-per-gallon ratings matching those of the LXS trim. The GT trim comes with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that allows for 27 mpg when driving in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. The GT Manual trim has a manual transmission and gets the lowest fuel economy with a still-efficient 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

Comfortable Interior

As you commute to work or run errands in Corinth, you’ll appreciate the comfort-enhancing features Kia includes in every 2024 Forte. At the base trim level, you’ll get six-way manual driver’s and front passenger’s seats, stylish woven cloth seat trim, and power-adjustable side view mirrors. Higher trim levels add features that increase convenience and make your ride more relaxing. The GT-Line trim and above have dual-zone automatic climate control, sport seats with SynTex and cloth trim, a leather-wrapped gear shift knob, and alloy sport pedals.

If you want standard features such as LED interior lighting, a sunroof, and heated front seats, go with the top-tier GT Manual trim. You can get some of these features as upgrades in select trims, but if you’d like the option of ventilated seats, you can only add this upgrade if you choose the GT-Line or GT trims.

Modern Technology

Staying connected on your drive to work is important, which is why you’ll find plenty of modern technological features in the new Kia Forte. The standard 8-inch or upgraded 10.25-inch touch screen lets you access your favorite apps through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Every trim has a USB charging port up front, and higher trims offer a USB port for back-seat passengers. Bluetooth hands-free wireless technology lets you make calls or get directions without taking your focus off the road.

The standard four-speaker sound system lets you surround yourself with your favorite songs as you make your way around Corinth. For a truly immersive listening experience, choose a trim with the Harmon Kardon premium sound system with eight speakers.

Superb Safety

You and your passengers will feel safe and secure as you travel in the 2024 Kia Forte. This sedan features the Kia Drive Wise suite of safety technologies to help you stay aware as you commute. Even at the base trim level, you’ll get forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, lane-following assist, and a driver attention warning. Higher trims provide additional safety features, such as blind-spot collision avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist, and highway driving assist.

Strategically located air bags throughout the Kia Forte’s cabin protect you and your passengers in a collision. The rearview monitor with dynamic parking guidance can help you back up and easily get in and out of tight parking spaces.

Stylish Exterior

An eye-catching design makes the 2024 Forte irresistible, so don’t let it surprise you when you find passersby staring. The LX trim has stylish 15-inch steel wheels, body-color side view mirrors, and projector beam headlights. Jumping to the LXS trim gets you 16-inch alloy wheels, and with the GT-Line trim, you can enjoy 17-inch alloy wheels, LED fog lights, and a shark fin antenna. You’ll find 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, and sport-tuned dual exhaust tips at the GT and GT Manual trim levels.

All the GT trims have unique body styling, a rear spoiler, and black gloss side view mirrors. These trims also come with a Smart Trunk feature that allows you to open the trunk with your Smart Key just by standing behind the vehicle.

Fun To Drive

Under the hood, the 2024 Kia Forte offers two engine options. Lower trims feature a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine creating 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. In the GT and GT Manual trims, you get a 1.6-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine that generates an exhilarating 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. Both options make for a fun-to-drive sedan with excellent handling. The independent Macpherson front struts and stabilizer bar and the rear twin tube shock absorbers ensure your ride is smooth no matter how many potholes you discover.
