Kia Forte Bossier City, LA

Go the Extra Mile in a New 2023 Kia Forte from Orr Kia of Bossier City

The new 2023 Kia Forte is capable of being anything you need it to be. Across five available trims, the Forte is affordable, practical, sophisticated, and athletic. Rarely do we see a sedan that encompasses so much personality, but the new Forte does so beautifully. This sedan is well-known for its perfect balance of passenger and cargo space, modern technology integration, and widespread advanced safety features.

Combining everything you could want in a modern sedan into a single model, the 2023 Kia Forte is everything you need for an invigorating ride. Upgrades and add-ons can also push it to the max if you'd like. Match your driving style with one of five available 2023 Kia Forte models at our dealership.

Dynamic Performance

If you're looking for a reliable, sturdy sedan to get you from Point A to Point B, the 2023 Kia Forte plays the role well. In its base model, the car is equipped with a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with an intelligent variable transmission, or IVT, too. Great for daily driving and highway cruising, the 2023 Kia Forte is a compact sedan that knows what everyday drivers need.

If you'd like a little more excitement in your drive, though, you can always upgrade to a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that can produce up to 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque.

This powertrain is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch or six-speed manual transmission. The seven-speed transmission setup features paddle shifters on the steering wheel for ultimate control and a sporty aesthetic, while the six-speed transmission setup features three-pedal driving.

Forte Design

The 2023 Kia Forte embodies many personas depending on the selected trim level. If you want conventional and practical, the LX and LXS trims boast a standard 8.0-inch touchscreen. Yet, if you want more from your Forte, go with the GT-Line that upgrades to a 10.25-inch touchscreen with available navigation and Kia Connect. The Kia Connect app allows you to control your Kia Forte via the Kia Access App remotely.

A rear-view monitor accompanies all trims with Dynamic Parking Guidance, a Smart Key with Push Button Start, and Dual Zone Automatic Climate Control. Another highlight of the 2023 Kia Forte's design is the combined 111 cubic feet of passenger and cargo volume.

Other fun design features of the 2023 Kia Forte largely depend on the selected trim. On the GT-Line, you'll find alloy sport pedals and sports seats with Syntex trim. In the GT, you'll see and feel a sport-tuned dual exhaust. Yet still, in the GT Manual, drivers can enjoy a sunroof, heated and ventilated front seats, and red seat trim and stitching.

Safety Features

The 2023 Kia Forte is just as safe as powerful and charismatic, equipped with a signature suite of driver-assistive safety features. Also known as Kia Drive Wise, this suite consists of Auto Emergency Braking, Blind-Spot Monitoring, Lane-Keeping and Lane-Following Assist, and Driver Attention Warning. The Kia Forte also includes a Rear Occupant Alert to notify drivers and passengers of anybody left behind in the back seat after the car is turned off and a Safe Exit Warning that alerts you to any potential nearby hazards before exiting the vehicle.

Kia Forte Trim Levels for 2023

In the 2023 Kia Forte, buyers can choose from five trims: LX, the LXS, the GT-Line, the GT, and the GT Manual.

Starting with the LX, you'll get automatic headlight control with high beam assist and remote keyless entry in addition to basic features.

The LXS adds in 60/40 split-folding rear seats and 16-inch alloy wheels. With the GT-Line trim, you'll find GT-line body styling, a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel, and 17-inch alloy wheels.

With the top-tier trim levels, the GT incorporates Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go, an electronic parking brake with auto-hold, and a wireless phone charger. The next-level GT Manual boasts a sunroof and Michelin Pilot Sport 4 Summer Tires.
