In all, there are four trim levels for the 2019 model. Things start off with the intriguing FE base model and continue upwards in terms of luxury and features with the LXS, S, and the top EX trim. To give you an idea of the sheer number of features that are available with this thing, you only have to look at the standard features included in the base FE trim.
The base Forte FE comes with an 8-inch touchscreen right out the gate, and that touchscreen even has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. Along with that touchscreen, you also get a rear-view monitor with dynamic parking guidance. For added comfort, the base trim even includes a dual-zone automatic climate control system.
The FE also comes loaded with a ton of safety features right from the start including forward collision warning, forward collision avoidance assist, and lane keep assist. The Forte provides even more safety tech at higher trim levels such as a blind spot collision warning system and a rear cross traffic collision warning system.
We’ve talked a lot about the FE, but we haven’t even mentioned its engine or transmission. Standard, the FE gets an impressive 2.0-liter engine that produces 147 horsepower. This engine comes standard on the whole lineup. The FE comes standard with a manual transmission, but its available Intelligent Variable Transmission or IVT is where things get interesting. This transmission design allows the FE to get 31-city and 41-highway mpg. Did we mention that the FE starts at just $17,690 MSRP and has the IVT at just $18,590 MSRP? This is a definite smart buy!
