Serving Fort Walton Beach, FL

The 2020 Kia Forte, which you’ll find at Kia Fort Walton Beach, is one of the most intriguing vehicles on the market. The Forte has all that you need for a pleasant and relaxing ride, even on the longest journey, and it’s also easy on the wallet. The 2020 Forte was redesigned in 2019, which means that it still has a fresh interior, updated amenities, and eye-catching style. The Forte is armed with class-leading safety technology on all trim levels, and there is an impressive amount of features across the lineup to enjoy as well. Although aesthetics and performance are the same as they were in 2019, the Kia adds two trim levels for an expanded lineup this year. In 2020 you have the option to get either the GT or GT Line along with the previously available trim levels. To see how the Forte stacks up against its peers, you can also arrange to try out the 2020 Hyundai Elantra at our dealership. The Hyundai Elantra falls short of the Kia in a few key areas, including performance and interior. The Elantra does not have as much power as the Kia, and its interior has less space for people and cargo. Overall, the Kia is more fun to drive, and it gives everyone more space to spread out and relax.
