At the 2016 North American International Auto Show, Kia Motors American unveiled the 2017 Kia Forte5. Aside from the visual enhancements to the front and rear, the new and improved Forte5 added a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The Forte5 maintains its European-inspired hatchback design, but is better and bolder than ever. Wider version of the signature “tiger nose” grille and redesigned headlights and taillights give the Forte5 more road presence than ever.

Each Forte5 model brings something different to the table. There are three models to choose from when selecting your Forte5:

  • 2017 Forte5 LX

In addition to all these amazing features, the EX and SX include Kia’s UVO infotainment system which offers Android Auto and Apple CarPlay displayed on a 7-inch color touchscreen. Both the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay allow drivers to stay connected by replicating key smartphone apps, enabling them to send text messages, access music and look up driving directions.

Even though the 2017 Kia Forte5 is jam packed with features, it comes fully loaded under the hood too. The Forte5 comes standard with a 2.0-liter GDI four-cylinder engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission or an available second-generation six-speed automatic transmission. Keeping with the sport theme in the SX is a zippy 1.6-liter turbocharged GDI four-cylinder engine.
