The third-generation 2019 Forte has been re-engineered to provide more safety and comfort, better fuel efficiency and more innovative and useful technology. While retaining its sporty and youthful image, it has graduated to a more sophisticated appearance with an overall fastback-like shape. Overall length has increased by 80 mm, allowing for more legroom and additional cargo capacity. Forte is also 20 mm wider and five mm higher and, with these improvements, Forte’s interior passenger and cargo room are among the largest in the compact segment. Housed under the hood is a second-generation, 147-hp, 2.0-litre four-cylinder that benefits from Atkinson cycle technology and a cooled EGR system. Typically applied to hybrid and electric vehicles, these technologies helps boost fuel efficiency. The engine is paired with either a six-speed manual or an all-new CVT. To reduce Forte’s NVH, the transmission case is wrapped in a sound-insulating cover to help quiet the typical “drone” associated with CVTs.
