2017 Kia Forte Details

The 2017 Kia Forte is a four-door, five-passenger compact sedan that comes in a few different trims, including LX, EX, and S. For the 2017 model, the Kia Forte gets a new front bumper and a "tiger nose" grille that sits visually a bit lower and blends right into the headlamps, like the one in the Kia Optima sedan. The taillights have also been redesigned and have optional LEDs. On the interior, the 2017 Kia Forte boasts a sporty look, a clean layout, and easy-to-use displays that have a hooded array of analog gauges and sport-sedan style.

Under the hood, the 2017 Kia Forte comes with one of two different engines. The Kia Forte LX and S models get a 2.0-liter iron-block in-line four-cylinder engine good for 173 horsepower. The EX model gets a 2.0-liter aluminum block and direct injection four-cylinder engine. A six-speed manual transmission is standard on the base LX, while a six-speed automatic is standard on the other higher.
