Last month, Kia launched the 2018 Kia Forte5 Hatchback at the Detroit Auto Show. Now, a month later, the carmaker will still have to present the new vehicles at the upcoming Chicago Auto Show, which will take place February 13-21. The sedan has been improved with a tangible appeal that will make it more competitive compared to other competitors in the segment. The 2018 Kia Forte5 sedan will be the first model to be built on Kia’s new state-of-the-art plant in Monterrey, Mexico. The new model will be offered in three trim levels. A sports coupe S has been added to the range. It will be placed between the input level LX and the top EX.
2018 Kia Forte5 Redesign
The visible changes of 2018 Kia Forte5 are relatively small and consist of an improved fender, a reformed facade and a “tiger knot” barbecue grill to bring it in agreement with other Kias like the Optima automobile of medium size. The taillights are a little different, and now offer LED lamps as a choice. Inside, common fabric furniture is enhanced and the upper cuts feature additional features such as the Android Automatic Operating Program and the Apple’s CarPlay capability, as well as active security systems such as support track, independent emergency stop and conscious cross traffic.
Many gossips about the appearance of this car. Among other things, this car will have 16-inch metal tires, a rear spoiler, LED working lights during the day and a firefox fatigue tube. The high-quality Kia Forte EX will get a sensitive key, 17-inch metal tires, LED taillights and recommended front lights. Speaking of 2018 Kia Forte in style with some changes, there are details that need to be discussed.
2018 Kia Forte5 Cabin
The cabin should also continue unchanged, which is surprisingly spacious. It has plenty of space for adults over 6 feet tall and up to 14.9 cubic feet of cargo room in the sedan. Those looking for more space for cargo, there is the 2018 Kia Forte5 hatchback with 23.2 cubic meters of space with the seats seated.

With its remaining aspect the same, we also hope that Kia will leave the standard features as is. If this is true, we expect to see 15-inch steel wheels, heated mirrors, air conditioning, electrical accessories, Bluetooth connectivity and a four-speaker audio system in the LX base pad .
2018 Kia Forte5 Powertrain
The 2018 Kia Forte5 may look like a sports sedan from certain angles, but it’s not one by the imagination. He is a respectable candidate in a difficult segment of the car market, and this year he got mechanical improvements to go with the restyled front. The result is a solid economy, performance of the car, including reasonably good steering and handling, overall powertrain performance and reasonably good gas mileage. But you will not find it in class in all performance categories. A new 2.0-liter standard 4-cylinder engine, rated at 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque, replaces the previous 1.8-liter line-4. A 6-speed manual is standard, although the vast majority of buyers probably opt for the 6-speed automatic transmission upgrade.
