The 2022 Kia Forte is futuristic designed and looks upmarket. It’s a very well equipped sedan with value for money aspect. But its base engine is very underpowered and its chassis isn’t that composed and delivers comfortable ride than that of sporty. Even its top-end 201 HP GT variant also isn’t that much versatile and matches its performance with the rivals such as Volkswagen Jetta GLI, Mazda 3 and Honda Civic Si.

Engine, Top Speed, 0-60 mph & Performance
The 2022 Kia Forte offers two engine configurations such as 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine produces 147 HP and a turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine making out 201 HP and mated to continuous variable transmission (CVT). The standard engine is quite underpowered and does 0 to 60 MPH in 8.1 seconds but if you want sufficient amount of power then you should opt a 1.6-litre turbo option which hit 0 to 60 in 6.7 seconds which is notably quicker than the Mazda 3. Forte delivers firm and composed ride quality but its handling is not justifying especially a GT badging.
