The New Kia Forte has a variety of new features and options for the model-year, but it still retains everything you've come to enjoy from the Kia Forte. Whether you're in the Covina area or reside in Chino, you'll want to explore what the New Kia Forte has to offer.

Get the Practicality You Need with the Kia Forte

At our dealership, we are firm believers that you shouldn't have to settle when it comes to your ride. With the Kia Forte, that's not something you'll have to worry about. Coming in multiple trims with multiple powertrains, the Kia Forte and our dealership ensures there is a model for every Ontario, CA driver. Something that you're likely to appreciate.

Kia Forte Engine


The standard engine for most trims of the 2021 Forte is a 2.0-liter, 147-horsepower model. It's paired with either a six-speed manual or a CVT automatic transmission.

If you opt for the sport-focused GT trim, you get a significant boost to a 201-horsepower, 1.6-liter turbocharged engine. A seven-speed Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission with paddle shifters is standard, or you may opt for the six-speed manual.

When it comes to capability, the New Kia Forte also makes for an attractive option. Offering up to 15.3 cubic feet in cargo space, your sedan can handle a weekend road trip with ease. Better yet, because the New Kia Forte can seat up to five, you won't come up short when it comes time to haul passengers either.

Safety & Tech

Kia builds the 2021 Forte with safety in mind. They start with the high-strength steel body that makes the car stronger, more stable, and quieter. Systems that help you control the car are added, like a Brake-Assist System that brakes harder when it senses an emergency around Diamond Bar.

If Forte gets in a slippery situation, the Traction Control System and Electronic Stability Control kick in. Together, these systems help you regain your grip when the wheels start spinning and keep the car under control while steering and cornering.

The 2021 Forte also has a suite of standard and available driver-assist features to keep Chino and Chino Hills drivers safe. These include the following.

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist helps keep you out of a frontal collision. This is standard on all trims.
  • Blind-Spot Collision Warning with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert lets you know if you're about to pull into the path of another vehicle. This feature is standard on the higher trims.
  • Smart Cruise Control helps maintain a steady distance between you and the car ahead of you. It is an available system.
  • Lane Keeping Assist is standard on all trims. It alerts you if you're drifting out of your lane and can gently steer you back if you don't respond.
  • High Beam Assist is an available system that automatically dims your headlights when it detects oncoming traffic.

When it comes to infotainment technology, the Forte has you covered. You'll find an 8-inch touch screen standard. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and navigation are all accessible through the touch screen or by voice commands. An available wireless charging pad means you don't have to worry about bringing your charger to stay powered up.

UVO link is the available smartphone app that gives you remote access to your Forte. It lets you remote start the car and set the climate control. You can call for emergency assistance and even communicate commands through Alexa.

Tech is also featured throughout the Kia Forte. Whether you're an Android or iPhone user, you can enjoy Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.

Voice Command Navigation is also an available feature, that way you don't get lost on the way to your destination.

Which Kia Forte is Right for You? Let's look at the trim levels:

  • GT-Line is a bold trim that adds features like sport seats, black accents and Smart Key with push-button start.
  • EX comes with UVO link and wireless charging standard. The cabin is upgraded with SOFINO artificial-leather-trimmed seats and a 10-way power driver's seat. Heated and ventilated front seats are available.
