What are you looking for when you go car shopping? Do you like fine fuel economy that borders on 40 mpg highway, nice handling and a fairly spacious interior? If so, then the compact class, with specimens like the 2017 Kia Forte, 2017 Hyundai Elantra and 2017 Nissan Sentra, is where you need to be.
The 2017 Kia Forte borrows from its award-winning fellow model, the 2016 Kia Optima, for its exterior design, with a fun look that still says you can get some serious HP pouring out from underneath the hood for such a small car. This is thanks to its "Tiger Nose" front grille and smooth, wave-like lines tracing the entire exterior. The 2017 Forte tops out at 164 HP in its top trim level, which exceeds the 2017 Elantra and the 2017 Sentra by a wide margin, as they peak at 147 HP for the Elantra and 130 for the Sentra.

On the inside of these compacts, you will find around 96 cubic feet of passenger room, but only the 2017 Kia Forte exceeds the figure with 96.2 available cubic feet. The 2017 Forte also has the all-new UVO3 eServices suite available, which includes voice-command navigation and streaming music apps, as well as 8GB of music storage space. And while all three have available trim options with heated front seats, the 2017 Forte is the only one with available ventilated front seats, in case you've come into the car from a blazing summer day and need to cool down, or if you just want a refreshing cool blast.
If you want an affordable vehicle that gets you nearly 40 highway mpg and also has the power of a larger vehicle, to go along with next-level technology, then the 2017 Kia Forte is the ride for you! We proudly stock this compact at Frank Boucher Kia of Racine, 9601 Washington Avenue in Racine WI, though we also serve the area which includes Milwaukee, West Allis and Kenosha.
