At Jake Sweeney Kia we are always very proud of our inventory of 2018 Kia cars for sale. With that being said, we are continually looking forward to what the Kia brand will be bringing us in the future. Last month we got a glimpse of what we can expect from the 2019 Kia Forte at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The new Kia Forte is modeled after the award-winning 2018 Kia Stinger fastback. This new design will give the vehicle a more commanding road presence. The model is not a fastback itself, the tighter proportions give it a sportier feel. The length of the vehicle has increased by just over 3 inches and adds more space for passengers and their comfortability.

The 2019 Kia Forte will also feature improved safety and technology features. Every new Kia Forte will come standard with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will both work with the system. Kia’s full line of safety features will be available as well including Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Lane-Keeping Assist, and Forward Collision Avoidance.

The new model will also feature the new Intelligent Variable Transmission from the Kia brand. The IVT improves efficiency by providing adaptive-style shift logic. It is expected that the 2019 model will see up to 35 MPG.

Here at your new car dealership in Florence, KY we cannot wait for the release of the 2019 Kia Forte. While there is no official release date, we can expect it later this year.
