2021 Kia Forte Engine and Transmission Options 

As you’re shopping for a new Kia Forte for sale near La Mesa, you’ll notice that this sedan offers two engines and three transmissions to choose from. A 2.0L Inline 4-cylinder engine is the standard option and can get up to an EPA-estimated 41 highway MPG on the automatic transmission. The second available engine is a Turbocharged 1.6L Inline 4-cylinder engine that can reach up to an EPA-estimated 35 highway MPG on the automatic transmission. For both of these engines, you can opt for a manual transmission, but that will deplete some fuel efficiency.
