Kia offers a 5-year, 60,000-mile basic warranty, and a 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

Active safety features greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. An active safety system that is standard on the 2023 Kia Forte is Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA). Optional safety features on the 2023 Kia Forte which we recommend include Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) and Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA).
A safety feature that may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances, should still be considered. Optional side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.
