The 2017 Kia Forte is an appealing and practical choice because of its ample passenger and cargo space, low base price, and long list of standard and available connectivity and safety features. However, the Forte’s performance lags compared to most rivals, according to our analysis of automotive reviews. The Kia Forte feels fairly composed on the road, though steering can be somewhat dull. For most commutes, it will get the job done. However, rivals like the Mazda3 and Ford Focus have athletic handling that can make running even the most mundane errands feel exciting. These competitors also offer a more comfortable ride compared to the Forte, which can feel a bit rough going over bumps and other imperfections. The Forte's base four-cylinder engine – like its handling – is just OK. For the average daily commute, the Kia Forte's new four-cylinder base engine has a good amount of power. It won't feel very strong on the highway, however, which is typical for a compact car's base engine. The available larger four-cylinder engine provides a bit more horsepower, but acceleration isn't markedly improved. The Forte's fuel economy numbers are about average for the segment. The Forte has one of the most upscale cabins in the class with top-notch materials and handsome styling throughout. Inside, the Forte is far from compact. Its front seats are comfortable and roomy and offer great forward sightlines. The back seats can easily accommodate three passengers with long legs, though some may wish for more headroom, thanks to the sloped roofline. The Forte's trunk is one of the largest in the class, offering plenty of easily accessible space for everything from your luggage to sporting equipment and grocery bags. The Forte's available 7-inch UVO infotainment system earns reviewer praise as one of the best, thanks to its large virtual buttons and intuitive menus. New for 2017, the infotainment system comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so you can access your phone's most used features through the infotainment screen. The Forte is also available with an extensive list of active safety features like a rearview camera, autonomous emergency braking, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and forward collision alert. However, you'll have to purchase an upper trim, as well as an expensive package to get most of these features, which lessens the Forte's price appeal.

2017 Kia Forte Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

The 2017 Kia Forte includes a family of compact cars, with a pair of different body styles and some revised powertrains. An extroverted design, a nimble driving personality, and a value-centric feature set are common points among them, and what helps this nameplate stand out in a tightly competitive segment of the market.

This year, the entry-level LX and top-of-the-line EX trim levels are joined by an intermediate S model as well. The slow-selling Forte Koup two-door has been dropped. 

Kia appears to be looking for a little more synergy between the Forte and its successful Optima mid-size sedan and Sorento and Sportage crossovers—bringing a new direct-injection engine to some of the lineup, a sportier Forte S version, and a new package of active safety features to the lineup. While it offers good value for money, it lacks strong standout features (beyond interior storage and display interface), and that lack keeps the stylish Forte from greatness.

Review continues below

We give the 2017 Forte a rating of 6.5 out of 10; it rates well for its roomy interior and high fuel economy, but loses some ground on comfort and performance against rivals that are newer from the ground up. (Read more about how we rate cars this year.)

Striking shape

As Kia’s compact-car family, the Forte is offered in sedan and Forte5 (five-door hatchback) forms. It's the sedan design that gives the Forte an advantage, as it's hard to get right in this size of vehicle. With its last redesign, the Forte gained a little bit of width and length, but not height; and that works especially well in the handsome, elongated roofline and profile of the sedan. For 2017, the Forte gets a new front bumper, as well as a “tiger nose” grille that sits visually a bit lower and blends right into the headlamps, as in the larger Optima sedan. Taillights have also been redesigned and have optional LEDs

The Forte’s interior feels simpler and more straightforward than those of Kia’s larger vehicles; it’s a sporty look, with a clean layout, effective infotainment systems, displays that have a hooded array of analog gauges and just a hint of sport-sedan style.

For 2017, the 1.8-liter inline-4 is now gone from the lineup. The Forte still offers two different engines; they’re both 2.0-liter inline-4s, but that’s where the similarities end. Forte LX and S models get a 2.0-liter iron-block 4-cylinder, while EX models come with a 2.0-liter four that has an aluminum block and direct injection. The Forte gets a 6-speed automatic transmission for most of the lineup, although a 6-speed manual transmission is standard on the base LX (with the automatic optional). Fuel economy ratings are slightly better this year, but only average for the segment.

Average drivetrain

In recent drives, the front-wheel-drive Forte's drivetrain manages to remind us of some of the better 1990s-era compact cars, with its 4-cylinder engine quite rev-happy and mostly vibration-free, yet quite noisy at times. It also handles reasonably well, though it's hardly a match for sporty rivals like the Mazda 3 or Ford Focus. The suspension tunes out some pavement coarseness, but irregularities still ring into the cabin, and there’s more of a din at highway speeds than is now typical for this class.

The Forte remains a compact sedan with rather long, low roofline, and that brings some compromises to back-seat space especially. Entry and exit are definitely a little more difficult in back than it is for models with more formal rooflines, like the Jetta, but legroom is decent. One sore point in past drives—especially to our taller testers—has been the front seats that are rather skimpy on bolstering.

Although the Forte might not be quite there in ride refinement, it’s come a long way compared to the Forte models of just a few years ago in cabin trims, materials, and details. You’ll find higher-grade plastics; climate control knobs are large and feel sturdy; and in upper trims the center-console storage is covered. For 2017, the Forte gets upgraded upholsteries, special black cloth seats with contrast stitching in the Forte S.

Value for money

The 2017 Kia Forte packs in some new active-safety features, including autonomous emergency braking, rear cross traffic alert, front collision warning, lane change assist, and dynamic bending lights. The Forte has been below par in safety compared to other models in its class. Last year Kia improved the Forte's frontal impact score to four stars, and its IIHS small overlap rating up to “Marginal,” yet it remains one we wouldn’t recommend to the safety-focused.

Otherwise, the Forte remains a small sedan with an extremely robust feature set and a high feature content for the money. Even base Forte LX models have included keyless entry, air conditioning, power windows and locks, a rearview camera, steering-wheel audio controls and Bluetooth audio. The 2017 Forte EX gets newly standard heated (in front) leather seats, dual-zone climate control, rear vents, and keyless ignition.

The 2017 Kia Forte S and EX models come with a 7.0-inch touchscreen, as part of a new UVO3 system that has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality, to access your smartphone functions through the vehicle’s interface and allow easier text-messaging and streaming-music functions.

2017 Kia Forte Information

The Kia Forte offers a full family of compact cars, with three distinct body styles and two engines. The Forte was last redesigned for the 2014 model year.

The 2017 Kia Forte sedan models feature freshened styling, and a new Forte S trim level has joined the lineup. The 2017 Kia Forte S is a modestly sportier sedan that this year fits between the entry-level Forte LX and top-end Forte EX trim levels. The 2017 Forte sedan has a redesigned front bumper cover and a new tiger nose grille lower and blending into the headlights. Taillights have been reworked, with LEDs optional. Upholstery is upgraded for 2017, also.

Two-door Forte Koup and five-door Forte hatchbacks retain the previous platform and look, though a redone hatchback should be coming soon.

Beneath LX and S sedan hoods, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, developing 147 horsepower and 132 pound-foot of torque, has edged aside the prior 1.8-liter four. EX versions get an aluminum-block 2.0-liter with direct injection, producing 164 horsepower and 151 pound-feet. A 6-speed manual gearbox is standard with LX trim. Most Fortes come with the 6-speed automatic transmission, which is optional for LX and standard otherwise.

The current design has been around for several years, but it's still a handsome vehicle, sharply detailed and topped by a dramatic roofline. Standard equipment has increased, making the Forte an even greater value. Cabin trim and materials have moved well ahead of early models.

Forte S and EX models come with a 7-inch touchscreen, as part of a new UVO3 system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality, to access smartphone functions.

Kia now offers some active-safety features as options, but a rearview camera is standard only on S and EX trim levels. Safety ratings score no better than average in crash-testing. Finally, Forte has earned an overall five-star score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Structural revisions for 2015 raised the previous crash-test score from a miserable three stars to an acceptable four-star rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety now ranks the Forte sedan Good, due to raising its small-overlap test score from Poor to Marginal.

Newly available safety features include autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, frontal collision warning, lane change assist, and dynamic bending lights. For the LX model, a rearview camera is part of an option group. All-disc brakes are standard. Full Review
