What is Smart Drive mode Kia?

Hey there, Does “smart” mode just change to sport mode when necessary? I can’t really notice a change in my Forte between the two drive modes. I usually drive gently most of the time. Sometimes, I speed up a bit for fun.

Hey! The “smart” mode in your Kia Forte is designed to automatically adjust between “eco,” “normal,” and “sport” modes based on your driving habits and the road conditions.
Since you usually drive gently, the car might stay in “eco” or “normal” mode most of the time, which could explain why you’re not noticing a change between “smart” and “sport” modes.
If you want a more noticeable change, you could try manually switching to “sport” mode when you feel like speeding up for fun.
