TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2020 Kia Forte

2020 Kia Forte Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearComment
2019 I found both rows of seats comfortable in the Kia. Outward visibility from the driver seat is pretty good, though the windshield is raked a bit much for my taste. Rear seat passengers enjoy a cushion comfortably high off the floor (unlike the Civic's) and a relatively open view forward. I personally have issues with the shape of the front seats in compact Hondas. Both their lumbar bulges and their headrests just too far forward. Try thoroughly before buying. see full Kia Forte review
