Sounds like performance

To add to the high-performance experience, a sound is produced by the available Electric Sound Generator, providing some extra audio muscle as you cruise into open roads.


A sporty character, all the latest in driver assistance technologies and an inspiring performance on the road – life just got more interesting with the Forte.

Designed to perform

Get up and go. The GT and GT Limited models come with a 1.6L Turbo engine with 201 horsepower, and a sporty design to match its performance.
