The 2017 Forte benefits from a design that stays true to the original Forte aesthetic while adding subtle upgrades to set it apart from the competition. The tiger-nose grille blends beautifully with angular headlights to become reminiscent of the larger Kia Optima, but this compact has a distinct LED taillight configuration that sets it apart.

The lighting on the 2017 Kia Forte got a major upgrade all around. The EX trim has available Door Handle Pocket Lights and Perimeter Approach Lighting. These lights activate as you walk towards the car and are very helpful on dark nights. In addition, the Forte is available with Dynamic Bending Light technology, which angles light around bends and corners using steering wheel inputs.

If you're constantly forgetting where you parked the car, you no longer have to worry with the Parking Minder feature. Through the UVO App, UVO eServices can record your vehicle's location and help you find it using your smartphone.

When it comes to interior materials, you'll be driving in serious comfort. The 2017 Kia Forte has upgraded cloth seat materials while the S trim has black cloth seats with white contrast stitching and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Leather seats that are heated for the driver and front passenger are standard on the EX trim.
