KIA’s 2017 Forte Hatchback gives Mexico’s compact vehicle category an upgrade. Its sporty design, elegant interiors and safety features make the new KIA offering a strong contender in an extremely competitive segment.

Unlike its sedan version, the Hatchback provides a more fun and adventurous look to appeal to those tired of driving a regular sedan. The 17 inch aluminum rims, the electric sunroof and the rear spoiler with LED brake lights will impress even the most demanding customers. With HID xenon headlights and fog lights, the Forte 2017 Hatchback is a go-to-car for every occasion.

Technology that makes driving more enjoyable and safe is a signature of KIA’s vehicles. The car features a tactile screen that measures 7 inches and includes Android connectivity in addition to its supervision cluster which is managed through a 3.5 inch LCD screen. The push-button start and KIA’s smart key system add to the car’s high-tech attributes.

As KIA makes driving more fun, the inclusion of normal, ECO and sport drive modes offer even more options for the driver to test out its 4-cylinder engine, which reaches 150hp at 6200rpm.

KIA spared no effort ensuring the vehicle's safety features covered every eventuality. The vehicle has a rear vision camera as well as rear, front and parking sensors. These simplify maneuvering into even the tightest of spaces or the blindest reverse turns. It has six airbags located on the front and sides and curtain airbags. Disc brakes on all four wheels and an ABS brake system add to the safety characteristics. Moreover, the Hatchback’s Hillstart Assist System (HAC), Electric Stability Control (ESC) and Vehicle Stability Management systems ensure the Forte will pull off even on a steep incline.

The driver's comfort is always important regardless of the journey’s distance so KIA has introduced an option for customers to include an electric driver’s seat with memory function and lumbar support. The anti-reflective interior mirror diminishes distractions during night driving and the double-zone air conditioning adds to passenger and driver comfort.

The KIA Forte 2017 Hatchback is an excellent option for anyone looking for an upgrade within the hatchback segment.
