2017 Kia Forte5 Hatchback SX


   New for 2017, the 2017 Kia Forte5 Hatchback SX’s Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) gives drivers the ability to switch between automatic and paddle-shift-activated semi-automatic gear shifting, resulting in total, seamless control no matter how long or short the drive.

The remarkable 201hp and 195 lb-ft of torque churned out of the available 1.6-liter turbocharged Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine proves big things really can come in small packages.

A cushion of protection surrounds you and your passengers in the Forte5. Front and side airbags are controlled by an advanced sensor system that’s designed to respond with the utmost immediacy.

Every journey brings the expected and the unexpected. The new Forte5 is equipped with active and passive safety systems that support you during both. Its intelligent driver-aid technologies—including an Anti-Lock Brake system (ABS), Hill Start Assist Control (HAC), Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), and Electronic Stability Control (ESC)—are engineered to provide a precise response in challenging driving situations.

The 60/40 split-folding rear seat is flexible enough to accommodate passengers as well as virtually any type of cargo, including extra-long items.

A removable cargo cover helps keep your gear and valuables hidden underneath the rear carpet.

Warm up with the touch of a button on a cold day; cool down on a warm day with seats that circulating soothing air through well-placed perforation.

With the touch of a single button on the available power sunroof, go ahead and let the sunshine (not to mention fresh air) in.
