Overall:

This vehicle is a great value. The safety features that come with it are better than most higher priced vehicles. It has lane assist to keep your car in between the line, alerts when you drive on a line, alerts for backing and collision. The gas mileage is great, smooth ride. Couldnt ask for more in 2019, $13,200 vehicle.

2019 Kia Forte LXS FWD Review
GuruXP4BS says:
Okay I am no average car buyer by any means. I was in service for 20 years. And car lots abound at every military base in the country. So I have had every type of automobile from Honda Civics, Toyota Corollas, and Kia Fortes. Because of living in base housing we were able to trade cars about every two years. Plus when you travel in the military they give you rental cars and most often they are Honda Toyota or Kia and Nissan. I was not too happy with Kia in the year 2006 to 2012. But all of a sudden I noticed in my consumer magazines that are non-partisan like Motor Trend and Consumer Reports that Kia was in the top 10 in about every car and SUV they are making currently. Forte itself is in the top five. I compared the Toyota Corolla SE to this Kia Forte because thats about the best comparison car out there to it. I was very surprised that the Kia Forte XLS which is up above their Baseline. Also the Toyota Corolla SE is also slightly above the Baseline. The safety reliability and the awesome warranty Kia comes with was far better than the Toyota. The Kia Forte drove like a dream was very quiet. I love the new chain drive transmission which instead of CVT its called IVT. The Kia Forte gets 45 miles to the gallon. Which is better then the SE Toyota of 39 miles per gallon. The car has a good drivability about it handles curves better than the Toyota. Has a Stringer inspired interior with dual climate control a 13in Android, Apple carplay and numerous safety features like lane-keeping assistance and frontal impact crash assistance. So it is a no brainer to go with the Kia it is also $5,000 less out-of-pocket brand new. And if you buy it used its about $2,500 less. Sometimes you can get real good deals on Kias used. So that savings could very much escalate to almost $10,000 savings. Depends on how Savvy of a shopper you are. But you will not go wrong with the all-new Kia Forte. Theyre durable well built cars now. And even the nonpartisan magazines like Motor Trend and Consumer Reports are now giving Kias praise. The reason is Kia has become a awesome automobile company. Go test drive these things they beat the pants off the competition.

Front Seats Ranked 2019 Toyota Corolla SE worse.
"Due to the accents from Kia Stinger. Love the nostalgic round vents of the Kia Forte over the Modern Toyota Corolla. Also the Dual climate control was nicer on the Kia Forte and easier to operate. The seats felt much softer and higher quality in the Kia Forte of materials fit and finish were awesome in the Kia. The Toyota felt cheap and didnt have as much niceties in the cabin. Could hear outside noise much more in the Toyota then in the Kia. Maybe thats because Kia added thicker windows to the front and much more sound dampening materials in this Kia Forte."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2019 Toyota Corolla SE worse.
"Kia has a flat or trunk due to the fact they do not put a spare tire in there trunks anymore. They give you fix a flat and an air compressor. The way the trunk opening is on the Kia and the fold down rear seat in the Kia give a lot more space. The Toyota has old school hinges that keep you from loading more cargo. The Kia wins once again on cargo."
