2017 Kia Forte ratings and reviews
The 2017 Kia Forte might be a compact car, but it has a wide range of impressive features that make it feel like anything but. Three trim levels help drivers find exactly what they need in the Forte, but the standard features of each model are plentiful. Across all trims are heated outside mirrors, Bluetooth connectivity, a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, traction and stability control systems, an impact-absorbing steering column, and hill start assist. Both the LX and S get a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, but the EX version with Gasoline Direct Injection offers a bit more torque and horsepower. The EX also boasts power-folding outside mirrors, a Smart Trunk system, anti-pinch windows, and push-button start. Owners can tweak each trim level with packages and standalone options, like extra cupholders and storage bins, interior trims, alloy pedals, and a power sunroof. Every configuration comes with Kia’s 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.
