This redesigned for 2019 Kia promises a more spacious cabin, better fuel economy, and improved interior technology over the previous generation compact car. The Forte keeps the previous car's 147-hp four-cylinder, but Kia says switching to a CVT helps the car manage an EPA-rated 34 mpg overall--a two-mpg improvement. Increased legroom comes courtesy of an extra 3 inches in overall length.

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.
