The 2019 Kia Forte is an all-new version of the compact sedan that’s really set a new bar for the segment. With the compact sedan market beginning to level off as crossovers encroach on their status as entry-level mainstays, the small sedans are beginning to feel the pinch. Kia revamped the Forte to meet the new expectations of today’s buyers and to make the Forte far more competitive. In the process, they created one of the most well-done options in the segment. At a price that’s right.
