The redesigned for 2019 Kia Forte brings simple controls, impressive fuel economy and a respectable list of standard advanced safety features.

Owner Satisfaction

Consumer ­Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How?

The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.
