Pretty. Amazing. Looks like these are bound to quicken the pulse. While its style offers the right amount of edginess, the Forte5 doesn't skimp on utility. It's the best of both worlds in one well-appointed, eye-catching package.
Available High-Intensity Discharge (HID) Headlights use xenon gas to provide crisp and focused road illumination; LED Positioning Lights are a stylish, distinctive touch, useful for both day and nighttime operation.
The expansive cargo hold of the Forte5 is the perfect fit for your lifestyle. Its cargo cover protects belongings from the sun and prying eyes, while the 60/40 split-folding rear seat can be configured to take in whatever you take on during your journeys.
Convenient at night or in a dark lot: the Forte5's available illuminated door handle pockets.
The rear wiper/washer is a useful feature during inclement weather.

Find inner peace. There's no shortage of premium touches in the Forte5.

With a spectacular combination of racing-inspired design and quality finishes, the Forte5 interior perfectly matches looks to performance.
Available heated and ventilated front seats warm up with the touch of a button on a cold day; cool down on a warm day by circulating soothing air through well-placed perforation.

The Forte5 SX's Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) gives drivers the ability to switch between automatic and paddle-shift-activated semi-automatic gear shifting, resulting in total, seamless control no matter how long or short the drive.

The advance airbag system features dual front, front-seat-mounted side, and full-length side curtain airbags. High-tech sensors can detect the level of an impact and presence of a front passenger, helping to control airbag inflation.
Every journey brings the expected and the unexpected. And every Forte5 is designed to deliver a precise response during both. Featuring active safety systems that work automatically when you need them, the Forte5 helps give you enhanced control on any road.
You've got backup. You've got an ally every time you back up. When shifting into reverse, the Rear-Camera display helps you see everything you might not see by just looking over your shoulder.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) alerts you with an audible warning, and a light on your outside rearview mirror, when it notices other vehicles crossing your intended path.
