“Strong sales of Forte have helped Kia achieve its best third quarter sales in company history, and the refreshed 2022 model is poised to continue that successful momentum,” Yoon was quoted as saying.

“With its contemporary design, a robust suite of standard ADAS features, and the 201 horsepower of the exciting GT trim, the 2022 Forte continues to raise the bar in the compact sedan segment,” he added.
