If you are in the market for a small car that’s stylish and loaded with up-to-date features, consider the 2017 Kia Forte LX. This five-seater has one of the highest fuel economies in its class and stands apart from its main competitors - the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla.
Powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the Forte produces 147 hp and 132 pound-feet of torque. Equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel-drive, it gets 38 mpg combined. According to Edmunds, it has earned an impeccable five-star rating for overall protection in government-conducted crash tests.
The LX trim level adds 15-inch steel wheels and heated side mirrors that are ideal for the winter months. Air conditioning will keep you cool in the summer, and you can calculate your mileage using the electronic trip computer. The driver’s seat and tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel are both height-adjustable for your comfort.
You can receive calls hands-free using Bluetooth, and the USB port can charge your mobile devices.
