Kia Connect

We’re connected to our phones more than ever, so it should stand to reason that a natural progression of that would be to link to your vehicle as well, thanks to a handy smartphone app. This is Kia Connect, the next level of support for your vehicle, allowing you to do such tasks like lock/unlock, start and set the temperature, all from your phone.

Wireless Charging Pad

Charging cords are becoming less and less a part of our daily lives thanks to wireless charging capabilities, and your 2023 Forte is a part of the club thanks to its available wireless charging pad. Keep your phone charged and free of cables in its convenient charging bay.

Harman Kardon Sound System

Enjoy your drive with the best crisp and clear sound with the available Harman Kardon audio system. Experience the ultimate in top-level sound quality, whether it is the latest episode of your favourite podcast or your perfectly curated playlist .



Blind Spot Detection System

As sleek and sporty as your Forte is, your blind spots still exist. Luckily for you, the available Blind Spot Detection System looks out for you at all times. As soon as a vehicle slides into your blind spot, you’ll get visual and audible alerts, so you only move when safe.

Advanced Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist

Driving a Forte means always driving with confidence, especially with the Advanced Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist system at your fingertips. Available on the Forte, it will automatically activate the braking system if it thinks a frontal collision may be imminent.

Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

Crowded parking lots are a nuisance for a number of reasons, especially when it comes to safely backing out of your spot. If you’re crowded on either side by large vehicles, the available Rear Cross Traffic Alert system will alert you if an oncoming vehicle is coming from either side as you reverse.

Lane Follow Assist

Even the most obvious tasks out on the road could do with a little support. The available Lane Follow Assist found on the 2023 Fote utilizes sensors to detect if you’re navigating out of the road lines, alerting you if so to correct your positioning.
