Forte boasts 96.8 cubic feet of passenger volume and 14.7 cubic feet of trunk space, some of the best in its class. The Forte competes with the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Mazda3.

Intended as the replacement for the Kia Spectra, the brand new Kia Forte presents a new set of styling cues for Kia, suggesting clean European lines that are both sporty and upscale. Kia has endowed the Forte with a long list of uplevel standard features, intending it to compete with the established Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla.
Built on a unibody frame, the 2010 Forte offers an independent front suspension, with MacPherson struts and a stabilizer bar, and a torsion beam rear suspension with struts and coil springs. This combination provides an optimal balance of handling and comfort not normally found in a compact sedan.
