New Engine, New Power

One of the most important updates we'll see on the new 2017 Kia Forte is the base engine. A new 2.0-liter Atkinson I-4 engine replaces last year's engine and delivers an impressive 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque. It's paired with a six-speed manual transmission but there's a six-speed automatic transmission also available. Why the new engine? It'll mean improved fuel economy, performance, and smoother shifting, to name just a few reasons. This is one big upgrade we believe drivers will love about the latest Forte.


New Look, New Style

We've always loved the design of the sporty Kia Forte but, for 2017, Kia went above and beyond to spice up its look. It has a new front bumper and a bold "tiger nose" grille that compliments new headlights. The headlights are available with Xenon HID lights so drivers can opt for the more sleek, modern feel. The refreshments to the front and rear of the Forte make the new 2017 model extremely stylish and attractive.
