Apple CarPlay/Android Auto

Connecting to your vehicle and the world around you should come standard in a modern vehicle, and so does it in the Forte5. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto provide hands-free access to everything on-board, from music to navigation.

Infotainment Screen

The generous 10.25-inch display screen is the perfect place for you to map your latest route, enjoy your favourite apps, choose a playlist and more, all in clear view.

Kia Connect

Stay connected to your Forte5 at all times, even when you may not actually be in it. The available Kia Connect app lets you control a variety of features just from the comfort of your smartphone. Utilize features like start, lock, unlock and more, all from your device.

The blind spots on your drive can be tougher to keep track of than you may think, so let the Blind Spot Detection system on your Forte5 keep you up-to-date. Sensors will alert you to a vehicle in your blind spot, so you can make your next move safely.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist

Frontal collisions are a fear of all drivers, but with Forward Collision Avoidance Assist you’ll feel much safer out on the road. The system will alert of the potential event of such a collision, so you can take action, and will even brake if need be.

Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

Stay protected all around your Forte5, especially when reversing, all thanks to the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. The system will let you know of any traffic that may be incoming, so you can stop and gauge the situation.
