Vehicle Description


The 2017 Kia Forte lineup gets a solid update this year to the 4-door sedan and 5-door Kia Forte5 hatchback. New styling makes the two look like miniaturized versions of the larger Optima sedan; this is a good thing. Under the hood, the base 1.8-liter engine has been replaced with a larger, but more fuel-efficient 2.0-liter 4-cylinder. And both the Forte sedan and Forte5 get upgrades to technology, including enhanced driver-assist systems, and a new infotainment system that incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Put it all together and you have a comprehensive compact-car lineup that goes head-to-head with the Honda Civic, Chevy Cruze, Hyundai Elantra, Mazda3 and many others with multiple body styles, good looks and surprising levels of refinement.
Driving the Used 2017 Kia Forte
Let’s just get this out of the way first: Despite the available 201-horsepower engine available in the Forte5, this subcompact doesn’t have the sporty chops to back up its looks. Enthusiasts should check out the Mazda3, Honda Civic SI, or Volkswagen Jetta or GTI for their fix. However, for the other 99 percent of drivers who just want a comfortable, feature-filled and sporty-looking sedan, coupe or hatchback, the Forte lineup is a solid choice. Around town and on the highway, the Forte sedan and hatchback are all excellent choices. Multiple creature comforts coddle driver and passenger alike, and even the base engine feels plenty powerful; the turbo is just gravy. The sedan’s added driver-assist technologies like automatic braking and lane departure warning sweeten the deal on a solidly economical daily-driver choice.
Favorite Features
APPLE CARPLAY AND ANDROID AUTO
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay bring the functionality and interface of your smartphone to your car’s infotainment system. Just plug your phone’s USB cable into the car’s port, and you’re set, bringing your phone’s navigation, music, texting and other compatible apps to your car’s dash.
FORTE5 HATCHBACK
While the Kia Forte5 may not have the sporting chops of the Volkswagen GTI, we’re just glad Kia has remained committed to this small but fanatical market niche.
Used 2017 Kia Forte Interior
The interior doesn’t look much different this year, retaining the logical controls and comfort, plus the whimsy of the passenger-side dash ripples. The soft-touch dash is exemplary of the overall quality of materials inside. EX models get standard leather this year, and there’s also heating and cooling available, as well as a 10-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar support. Even the rear seat offers a center armrest with cup holders, as well as a good amount of room for the class. Then there’s the Forte5’s excellent 23 cubic feet of cargo space, in case the sedan’s 15-cubic-foot trunk isn’t enough.
Used 2017 Kia Forte Exterior
The new grille and headlights on the 2017 Kia Forte look like they’re straight from the bigger Kia Optima sedan. Ditto for the taillights, which retain the original shape, but have been redesigned to look more like the larger car’s. The Forte5 shares the same nose, but keeps its unique hatchback profile, obviously. Overall, it’s a fresh and good-looking group of cars. The LED accent lights are a nice touch, and even with the updates, the overall conservative aesthetic remains, as do features like power-folding exterior mirrors, puddle lamps and illuminated door-handle pockets.
Used 2017 Kia Forte Standard Features
The new 2.0-liter 4-cylinder base engine in the Forte sedan/Forte5 hatchback offers the same power as last year’s 1.8-liter but better city fuel economy with the popular automatic transmission. All Forte sedan and Forte5 hatchback models come with keyless entry, standard Bluetooth and USB smartphone connectivity, air conditioning and a split-folding rear seat. The base LX model Forte sedan is fairly dressed down, even offering steel wheels and a manual transmission. A new mid-level S model sedan offers nicer interior appointments at a lower price than the EX. A full complement of active and passive safety features is standard on every Forte.
Used 2017 Kia Forte Options
Options for the 2017 Kia Forte lineup include navigation, leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control and Kia’s UVO infotainment system. Most of that’s included in the Forte’s Premium Plus package, although leather is now standard on EX sedans. Many features are bundled by trim level, and the Forte5 models offer a level above the sedan called SX that adds a 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with 201 horsepower, as well as 18-inch wheels. A Technology Package adds navigation, heated and cooled seats, and other niceties like a power moonroof.
Used 2017 Kia Forte Engine
The new base engine for the Forte and Forte5 is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers are essentially the same as last year’s smaller engine, but this engine gets notably better city fuel economy. It’s standard in the LX and S models of the Forte sedan. The other 2.0-liter engine is a direct-injection 4-cylinder that puts out a more robust 164 horsepower, which is slightly down from last year. Transmission choices in the sedan are a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic. The Forte5 gets just the more powerful 2.0-liter, while the 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder can be paired with a 6-speed manual or 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
