2016 Kia Forte vs 2017 Kia Forte

2016 Kia Forte trim levels Boucher Kia

When you're in the market for a new car, it's important to look not only at the different brands and models available but also at the model years of a specific vehicle. Sometimes the difference may be small such as a new available body color. But other times the differences are vast as is the case with the 2016 Kia Forte vs 2017 Kia Forte.

Though both models offer drivers an extensive list of amenities, visually there are obvious differences in body styling and the number of features on the 2017 Forte has been expanded beyond those of the outgoing model. Just one of the popular features of the 2017 Kia Forte is a the standard UVO eServices infotainment system, a system that is available but not standard only on the 2016 Forte EX.

More Trims Equals More Options

For the 2017 Model year, Kia has added a sporty S trim to the Forte lineup. This trim bridges the gap between the LX and EX trims in terms of available features, but stands out from the other trims with a style completely its own. The S trim has exclusive sport black cloth seats with white contrast stitching, leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and 16-inch alloy wheels for an aggressive and stand out appearance.
