2017 Kia Forte Garden Grove CA
We’ve all seen inflation impact us in a real way, and the 2008 recession didn’t help. Compact cars, which serve as the entry to any lineup, are less affordable than they used to be. That is, unless you are shopping for a Kia. The 2017 Kia Forte in Garden Grove CA is available at a low starting MSRP of just $16,490, which easily makes it one of the most appealing options on the market for those on a budget. Despite this low cost, it doesn’t skimp on key features as it earns high praise for offering the latest technology.
The 2017 Kia Forte is a versatile sedan that is well-suited for new drivers, commuters and anyone looking for a comfortable compact car. If a sedan isn’t right for you, there are also coupe and hatchback versions of the model to provide sportier styling or more cargo space. Still, there’s no denying the sleek lines of this traditional sedan, which not only looks more expensive than it is, but has a wide-range of available premium features to suit every need and desire. All this, while still prioritizing the driving experience.
Standard features found in the base LX trim include heated side mirrors, solar control glass, projector-beam headlights, a 4-speaker sound system, Bluetooth connectivity, power windows and locks, remote keyless entry, air conditioning, woven cloth upholstery and a 6-way adjustable driver’s seat.
Under the hood of the Kia Forte is a standard 2.0-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine that delivers 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, but the Forte has an available six-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic driving mode selection.
The 2017 Kia Forte has a total of 96.2 cubic feet of interior volume, which is spacious for its class. This means a full 42.2 inches of leg room for those seated in front, and 35.9 inches of leg room for those in the rear. All while still leaving 14.9 cubic feet of cargo volume for groceries and other purchases.
Why drive the 2017 Kia Forte?
One of the greatest compliments the 2017 Kia Forte receives is that it is roomy and comfortable.

For the manual transmission, the Forte delivers an EPA-estimated 25 city and 34 highway mpg rating, which is boosted to 29 city and 38 highway if you opt for the automatic transmission upgrade.
You can expect to find the 2017 Kia Forte in three trims: LX, S and EX. The Lx comes with standard features like heated side mirrors, projector-beam headlights, 15-inch steel wheels, a 4-speaker AM/FM radio, Bluetooth Hands-Free Connectivity, a USB port and full power features.
