The unique hatchback style of the Forte5 invites a plethora of additional cargo space in your vehicle. The versatile space is highlighted through the rear “fifth” door hatch, which seamlessly opens up so you can load and secure your gear easier than ever.
A unique style is present all around the Forte5,, but perhaps there is no way better than its mix of performance utility with its 16-inch alloy wheels. Not only do these wheels round out the sporty look on the Forte5, but also make sure your ride is always smooth.
For your everyday driver, the base EX Forte5 trim is a natural entry point, but for those who want a little more out of their hatchback experience, explore the racing-inspired GT trims that the Forte5 has. These incredibly sport-styled options blend hatchback utility with sport car looks on the GT and GT Limited trims.

Available Smart Key with push-button start lets you get in and go without fumbling for your keys in your pocket. Entry into the Forte5 and ignition are as seamless as can be thanks to this advanced start system.
The 10.25-inch infotainment system display is so beautiful you won’t want to disturb it, but that’s what it’s there for, with all of your access to apps, navigation and more. Its crystal clear display provides the perfect complement to the refined interior of the hatchback.
Cut the cord and leave your long, tangled phone charging cables behind and utilize the handy wireless charger inside the Forte5. This available charging pad will keep your compatible phone charged and easily accessible, without distraction.
Allow your Forte5 to look out for you, with the Blind Spot Detection system monitoring the blind spots that you can’t see, letting you know if a vehicle approaches and enters one. You’ll get alerts to keep you abreast of these road situations, so you can lane change only when safe.
Front-end collisions are obviously dangerous, and that’s what the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist system is here to help prevent. It will alert you to the threat of a possible collision so you can react, but if you don’t the system will apply the brakes for you.
It’s always an annoyance when you’re backing out of a crowded parking lot and aren’t able to tell if you’re free to pull out, or if there are oncoming vehicles coming your way. Say goodbye to this frustration thanks to Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, which notifies you of approaching traffic on either side.
The Kia Forte5 enters its 2022 model year with updated styling from the 2021 model, while the interior adds on some new tech abilities. On the trim feature availability side, the GT no longer is able to be had with a manual transmission, with the dual-clutch automatic being the only one present.
