2017 Kia Forte

In the classic story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Goldilocks had real trouble finding the right fit for her. If she was shopping for a sedan today, she'd probably run into the same issues. When you're looking for the right match for your budget and needs, some compacts are far too small, while other midsized sedans feel like they're made for larger crews. The 2017 Kia Forte, with its perfect compact size and thoughtful features, is just the right fit for someone looking for a vehicle with everything you need, a lot of what you want, and a performance that pays.

2017 Kia Forte

What we like about the 2017 Kia Forte is that it doesn't try too hard to be something it is not. That said, for a compact vehicle, the Forte offers options that you might not see in other compacts. You can trick out your Forte with a sun roof, heated and ventilated front seats, and push-button start with a smart key, but the standard bones of the vehicle are solid. Great interior room for a compact gives ample head, shoulder, and hip room to people of all sizes and the trunk size is nothing to sneeze at. You'll have room for you, your friends, and their bags when you head off for the weekend or will love the 2017 Kia Forte as a weekday workhorse on your commute. Need room for bigger loads? We love the thoughtfulness of the 60/40 split backseat, which is becoming a standard, because it lets you slide in a long cargo load while keeping room for backseat passengers.

If you're on the go a lot, which is more likely than not in today's fast-paced society, you'll absolutely adore the fuel performance on the 2017 Forte. The impressive numbers break down to an average of 32 mpg, which is going to save you hundreds each year in fuel costs. Kia also sets itself apart by offering a manual transmission option for those who prefer it, perhaps for a sportier feel, but be aware that the gas mileage is actually better on the automatic than the manual version of the 2017 Kia Forte. Opt for the sport-tuned suspension and take advantage of the 147 horsepower and we don't think you'll be lacking in the sporty feel.

Sporty and safe is the mantra for the 2017 Kia Forte, which wins the NHTSA's overall five-star safety rating. The Forte is covered with airbags, from side curtain to pelvis to standard front seat air bags, along with combination of features that have become standard in keeping drivers and passengers safe: anti-lock brakes, traction control, stability control, along with Kia's side impact door beams and front and rear crumple zone construction. Add to that a whole host of available safety tech (think rear cross traffic, blind spot, lane departure, lane keeping, and forward collision alerts as well as automatic emergency braking) and your little compact will feel like the safest place to be.


Forte Technology

Spending as much time in your compact vehicle means you probably want some of the bells and whistles, and the 2017 Kia Forte offers you some good ones. As standard features on the base model, you'll get a 4-speaker sound system, solar glass, heated side mirrors, remote keyless entry, and Bluetooth connectivity to your smartphone. Upgrade to the next trim up and a wide world of tech options opens up to you, with a 7-inch touchscreen display that has not only Apple CarPlay and Android Auto but also the available Kia UVO tech options. Other options that might turn your head? The SmartTrunk, which senses your smart key and opens automatically when you stand in front of it. No more fumbling for keys or putting down your perfectly balanced load to get it in the car. Conclusion
