2017 Kia Forte | CarGurus Test Drive Review

Search new Kia Forte listings: https://goo.gl/mdLrp6 Kia’s 2017 Forte got a refresh that improves its looks, particularly up front, and adds a new sport trim (the S) as well as more safety tech and a few more options. A new engine improves efficiency, too, making the new Forte a well-rounded competitor in the hyper-competitive compact sedan segment. Kia keeps starting prices low by making a number of expected features extra-cost options, but even with those additions, the Forte provides a cost-effective alternative to the Civic, Focus, Jetta, and Mazda3. The Forte’s new engine is an updated version of the 2.0-liter inline four that’s been used in other Kia and Hyundai cars for about 5 years. It has a bit more power than the previous one, with 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque, but it gets mileage ratings of 29 mpg city and 38 highway, 3 mpg better in the city and 1 better on the highway than last year’s version. Surprisingly, the manual transmission available in the LX hurts mileage, and the old engine still powers the flagship EX trim.

2019 Kia K9 - INTERIOR

Next-Generation Flagship Sedan Redefines New Korean Luxury Classically drawn exterior inspired by ‘Gravity of Prestige’ design concept Wrap-around cabin touts sophisticated materials and wide array of high-tech features and upscale amenities K900 offers superb ride quality and ‘confident comfort’ Standard UVO luxe1 embedded telematics allow remote start and HVAC control features Luxury Retreat Within Elegant by design but with a minimalist layout, the interior of the new K900 provides drivers and passengers with a peaceful retreat that is simple, modern and comfortable. The cabin wraps around the driver, enhancing the sense of being cocooned from the outside world. A tight and virtually uninterrupted line between the doors and the instrument panel creates a deliberate sense of continuity. Flowing from the center of the dash and outward to the doors, surfaces are trimmed in a sophisticated combination of materials, with metal veneers and a choice of four open pore matte wood selections – Walnut, Brown Olive Ash, Beige Olive Ash and Engineered Wood. Soft leather balances the cabin’s harder natural surfaces in Black, Beige, Espresso Brown or two-tone Sienna Brown. Kia’s definition of luxury is not limited to the privileged, but there is a distinct feeling of exclusivity achieved by tasteful accents throughout this space. The handsome dash is uncluttered and ergonomic, featuring a tech-savvy instrument panel and integrated air vents. The driver helms the car with a heated leather steering wheel and a matching center console-mounted gear shift knob. The leather-trimmed premium seat design achieves the ultimate in luxury, exuding a substantive look and feel as well as a high degree of durability thanks to extreme validation testing in the areas of UV, temperature and humidity. Premium Nappa leather also is available. The seats are well-contoured and shaped to deliver maximum support and comfort while minimizing fatigue for occupants, whether the K900 is straight-line cruising over a long distance or moving ambitiously over curvy country roads. The quilting on the seat “shoulders” is to invoke the spirit of clothing worn by Korean kings throughout the country’s rich history. To compensate for both cold and warm climates, seats up front are heated and ventilated. The available 20-way adjustable driver seat is equipped with width-adjusting bolsters and lumbar support with power air cells and shoulder adjustments for exacting comfort. The front passenger can enjoy 12-way adjusters to find the ideal position. Additionally, substantial improvements in rear seat comfort have been made over the outgoing K900. The driver side rear seat and the passenger side rear seat will offer available 12-way and 14-way adjusters, respectively, as well as reclining capability, height-adjustable headrests and forward/aft, tilt up/down cushions. Seat heat and ventilation are optional for the outboard rear seats. Enhancing back seat comfort are optional HVAC controls, which allow rear passengers to have separate fan controls from the front seat passengers. For further comfort and relaxation, drivers can adapt the cabin of the new K900 to personal preferences with a new mood lighting system developed in conjunction with the world-renowned Pantone3 Color Institute. Of the 64 total colors available, Pantone3 created seven specific color settings, each with its own message and meaning inspired by oceans, forests, skies, the Aurora Borealis, and other aspects of nature. The lighting elements are located in key areas throughout the K900 including the overhead console, door panels and front/rear footwells. This system helps occupants immerse themselves in the cabin, making the K900 a rejuvenating space of inspiration rather than just an upscale mode of transportation. A similar approach to cabin lighting was first shown on the Telluride concept SUV. To further elevate the mood, the K900 features interaction lighting thanks to an Intelligent Lighting Control system that uses proximity sensors to brighten 20 percent when the driver’s hand is sensed reaching for a switch on the dash. Although the K900 prides itself as not being overtly luxurious, the one nod to the haute lifestyle is an analog clock specially designed and co-branded by Maurice Lacroix,4 a symbol of globally renowned sophistication and the pursuit of perfection in craftsmanship. This eye-catching timepiece is set in the center of the dash and tangibly elevates the prestige level of the cabin.

Kia expands the Forte sedan’s features-list by adding cruise control as standard on the base LX model and including UVO3 with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay on the Popular package. The S model receives a new 16-inch alloy wheel design, the Technology package now includes a moonroof and the Premium package has been discontinued. Kia also expands the Forte’s safety features by adding rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring with Lane Change Assist as standard on the top EX model. The Forte5 hatchback will likely receive similar updates.

Kia’s compact Forte sedan is positioned above the subcompact Rio but below the large and more expensive Optima, Cadenza, Stinger, and K900 sedans. The Forte has a similar starting price as the Soul, Kia’s crossover-like hatchback.

Powering the 2018 Kia Forte LX and S sedans is a 147-hp, 132 lb-ft of torque 2.0-liter I-4 engine that delivers 25/34 mpg city/highway when backed by a standard six-speed manual transmission and 29/37 mpg with a six-speed automatic. Found in the range-topping EX sedan is a direct-injection 2.0-liter I-4 that produces 164 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque and is rated at 25/33 mpg with the six-speed automatic (not available with the manual transmission).

The Forte5 hatchback uses the 164-hp 2.0-liter I-4 paired to the six-speed automatic in the base LX and EX trims and comes rated at 25/34 mpg. The top SX model packs a 1.6-liter turbocharged I-4 that pumps out 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque and is rated at 25/30 mpg with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and 23/29 mpg with the six-speed manual. The Forte and Forte5 are only available in front wheel drive.

The 2018 Kia Forte is available with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, HID headlights that turn in the direction the car is traveling, LED taillights, power-folding and heated side view mirrors, a power moonroof, a 4.2-inch instrument cluster display, 10-way power adjustable heated and ventilated leather front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a 7.0-inch center display with the UVO3 infotainment system and navigation and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Forte5 is also available with all the above features as well as 18-inch alloy wheels, perimeter approach lighting, puddle lamps, gloss black side view mirrors, dual chrome exhaust finishers, Sport front and rear fascia with red accents, metal pedals, two-way power driver’s lumbar support, and soft-touch front upper door panels.

The 2018 Forte received a five-star overall rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars). The Forte5 hatchback received five stars for the side crash test and four stars for the rollover evaluation (an overall rating has not been issued). The 2017 Forte sedan is considered a 2017 Top Safety Pick+ – the IIHS’ highest award – because the sedan received the highest score of Good in all five crash test evaluations and the highest rating of Superior for the front crash prevention test by avoiding a frontal collision in 12- and 25 mph tests thanks to the available Autonomous Emergency Braking system found in the Technology or Premium packages (depending on the model). Those packages also include the remaining driver assist safety features: Forward Collision Warning system, a lane departure warning system, lane keep assist system, HID headlights, blind-spot monitoring, Lane Change Assist and rear cross traffic alert.
