With a 201-horsepower, 1.6-liter turbo engine under the hood, the Forte GT should be fun.
The recently refreshed Kia Forte sedan gets a little livelier thanks to the addition of a new GT model.
The GT uses a 1.6-liter turbo engine good for 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque.
The Forte GT also wears unique styling touches like a new black grille with red accents, gloss-black mirrors, new side skirts and a trunk-lid spoiler.
Kia promises a "growling" exhaust note for this sporty sedan.
In terms of handling changes, the Forte GT has independent suspension all round and can be equipped with Michelin summer tires on 18-inch wheels.
LED ambient interior lighting and a sunroof are optional. The touchscreen infotainment system supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Both six-speed manual and seven-speed dual-clutch transmissions will be offered.
Standard active-safety tech includes precollision braking and lane-keep assist, with blind-spot monitoring offered as an option.
These optional sports seats feature red accent piping.
A version of the 1.6-liter turbo engine is also found under the hood of the Hyundai Elantra Sport and Elantra GT.
