Different by design.

With bold lines and striking features, the Forte5 proves that utility doesn't come at the cost of great design. Details like the signature grille and available 18-inch machine-finish alloy wheels offer a refined appearance, while features like the available power folding sideview mirrors prove that practicality can be a thing of beauty.

Design

Bright ideas.

Some of the best examples of form meeting function in the Forte5 are also the brightest. The available High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights help cut through the night with bright and crisp lighting. And the available LED positioning and LED lightbar taillights each add to its distinctive style.

Design
