2020 Kia G-Line
2020 Kia G-Line
Kia has quite the lineup, from the minivan Sedona to the subcompact Rio. Today we’re looking at the G-line, a trio of cars that should appeal to a broad swath of people. Each one is a compact that seats five people. But, beyond that, each one has a niche all its own. Like a personality test, you’ll know something about yourself by the end of this article. And you’ll know which of these Kia vehicles should be yours.
The Stronger, Fitter Forte
The Kia Forte is a beauty of a compact sedan that fits right into anyone’s budget. A big trunk, plenty of tech, and great gas mileage make this the ultimate commuter car. But Kia has even bigger things in store. Kia is taking the Forte seriously and that effort shows in an all-new trim level debuting in 2020: the Forte GT. Performance and styling upgrades sets a new standard in sporty sedans. Under the hood, you’ll discover a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder, delivering 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque to the wheels. Pair that with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic or a six-speed manual transmission, and you have a Forte with sporty chops to match that beautiful mug.
For the Soulful Soul
Inspired by music made sheet metal, the 2020 Kia Soul counts the beats for you with cabin lighting that, if you want, pulses in time with your music. This quirky contender launches an all-new, redesigned generation in 2020 that features edgier exterior styling and extra tech. Because of a longer frame, the legroom is extended a bit and the storage area grows by 5 extra cubic feet. The Soul just got sportier, with all-wheel drive available on all models and a more powerful base engine. If you want to power through the urban jungle with plenty of personality in tow, the Soul might speak to you.
Float Like a Butterfly…
The Kia Stinger debuted an overhauled design in 2018, so we’re expecting a 2020 model year that rides the wave of that success. This is for you performance-oriented people. With a look that means business and performance to match, the Stinger turns heads and then leaves them all in the dust. This luxury sedan goes from zero to 60 in 5 seconds flat. Get the GT trim level to maximize the sporty feel. But don’t confuse the Stinger with zippy subcompacts. This is a powerful, stately sedan. You can thrill ride with a Stinger, but there is strength and stability as much as there is power and acceleration. Take the curvy country lane, scatter the dry leaves, but pull into the nice restaurant, if you know what we mean.
One of the vehicles in this lineup should entice you. Is it the Forte, Soul, or Stinger? Do you want a reliable commuter car that’s big on fun? A spunky splash that dances to its own rhythm? Or do you want something that takes itself seriously and commands attention? The choice is yours.
