New Kia Forte in Pensacola, FL

Check Out the 2021 Kia Forte at KIA AutoSport of Pensacola

The Kia Forte is a fun car that has a bold look. Our team at KIA AutoSport of Pensacola is impressed by what this sedan can do, and we think you'll like what you hear when you learn more about it. We carry several trims of the Forte for Pensacola, FL customers, giving you a range of options to consider. Those trims are:

  • FE
  • LXS
  • GT-Line
  • EX
  • GT
  • GT Manual


This car is athletic and fast, and it certainly looks the part. Higher-end exterior features are available, such as a sport grille, chrome accents, and perimeter lighting that turns on when you approach your Kia. Some of our trims have a particularly unique style. For example, the GT has black gloss outside mirrors, a rear spoiler, and bumper accents. LED lights can add to the modern feel of the vehicle. Depending on the trim, there could be 15-, 16-, 17-, or 18-inch wheels. Those 18-inch wheels have a two-tone look that stands out.


The first four trims of the Kia Forte use 2.0-liter engines. These engines come with almost 150 horsepower and over 130 pound-feet of torque. If any of our Milton, FL customers prefer having something more powerful, you may want to choose either the GT and GT Manual. These use turbocharged engines that have displacements of 1.6 liters. This enhanced design of the engine takes horsepower up to 201 and increases torque to 195 pound-feet. It makes for a more exciting ride around Gulf Breeze. Those two trims have a sport-tuned dual exhaust system as well.

Given the trim's name, it's no surprise that the GT Manual uses a six-speed manual transmission. The FE also has that type of transmission, though it can get an Intelligent Variable Transmission. That's what the LXS, GT-Line, and EX all use. The GT uses a sportier seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which comes with paddle shifters. Exact mileage depends on the model selected; the best that the Kia Forte can do in terms of fuel efficiency is 41 miles per gallon on the highway and 31 miles per gallon in the city. Those are pretty respectable numbers that signal that long-term fuel costs hopefully won't be too high.


Remote keyless entry is quite convenient to use, and even better is the available Smart Key with push-button start. Available ambient lighting and LED interior lighting can provide illumination while enhancing the interior atmosphere of the car. Sport seats with artificial leather are available, and many of the models have accent stitching for visual interest. An available flat-bottom steering wheel can match the sport seats, giving you a feeling like you're sitting in a race car. Helping you stay comfortable, no matter what the weather is in Bellview, FL, are available heated and ventilated front seats.


Even when you leave your office or home in Seminole, AL and hit the road, you can stay in touch with friends, colleagues, or family. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard so connecting your phone to your infotainment system is simple. You can make hands-free phone calls, send and receive text messages, look up contact information, and more. The touchscreen is fairly large, measuring eight inches. Navigation, a premium sound system, wireless charging, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio are all optional. Many of our customers choose to upgrade their Fortes to have these components since they really are nice to have.


In a Kia Forte, there will always be another pair of eyes looking out for you. The car comes standard with forward collision-avoidance assist as well as many other monitoring and mitigation systems. These systems actively work to keep you safe, and it can be very reassuring to know that your car could warn you about potential problems and help you avoid accidents. The Forte can even alert you when it seems like your attention on the road is fading. Blind-spot monitoring, lane change assist, and rear cross-traffic monitoring can all be found on the higher trims of the Kia Forte.
