2020 Kia Forte GT-Line Is For Those Who Just Want To Look Sporty

If you love the looks of the Kia Forte GT but don’t want to pony up the extra dough for the car’s turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, you’re in luck as the company has introduced the 2020 Forte GT-Line in Chicago.

Looking a tad sportier than the standard model, the Forte GT-Line has gloss black accents on the grille, mirror caps and side skirts. The model also has a gloss black rear spoiler and exclusive 17-inch alloy wheels with a graphite finish. Other highlights include red accents and projector headlights with LED daytime running lights.

The sporty styling continues in the cabin as designers installed a flat-bottom steering wheel with white contrast stitching. Drivers will also find alloy pedals and exclusive sport seats with black cloth upholstery and white contrast stitching.

While the car might look like a Forte GT, it features a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 147 hp (109 kW / 149 PS) and 132 lb-ft (178 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a continuously variable transmission which sends power to the front wheels.

Drivers looking for something more powerful can always opt for the full-bore Forte GT. It packs an estimated 201 hp (150 kW / 203 PS) and 195 lb-ft (264 Nm) which can be channeled to the front wheels via a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.

The 2020 Forte GT-Line will go on sale this summer and pricing will be announced closer to launch. Regardless of how much it costs, the car will come standard with an assortment of driver assistance systems including forward collision warning, forward collision-avoidance assist, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist and driver attention warning.
