Centennial Colorado - 2019 KIA Forte OVERVIEW

2019 KIA Forte's Exterior

In an online review, you will notice that some exterior changes have been made to the Forte as well. Because the vehicle is longer in 2019 than in the previous year, the hood is elongated. This gives the car a more athletic appearance. Your local auto dealership has a great inventory of in-stock vehicles, so you can admire the many exterior color options in person. If you select a more basic model when buying the 2019 KIA Forte, your car will be equipped with all-season tires and 15 x 6-inch steel wheels. More advanced trims come with 16 x 6.5-inch alloy wheels as standard equipment. At Arapahoe KIA in Centennial Colorado, your salesperson can tell you about a few of the exterior upgrades available upon request. These include a cargo hook, mud guards, a paint protection package, a rear spoiler and a rear bumper applique.
