The compact sedan segment is quickly becoming a popular class among car buyers, and with choices like the Kia Forte, there’s no question why. Despite its smaller size, the Forte is stocked with amenities, ranging from technology and convenience to safety. Not to mention, it even sports an engaging performance and a killer fuel economy. Familiarize yourself with the 2017 Kia Forte for sale in Rockford, IL, today at Rock River Block!

The Forte offers two engine choices, both of which are nothing less than extraordinary. With 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque at your disposal, as well as a fuel economy of 29/38 MPG city/hwy1, the standard 2.0L I-4 engine certainly proves itself as a fine contender. In the EX trim, you’ll find the 2.0L I-4 powertrain, which conjures up enough strength to reach 164 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque. It also provides you with ample time on the road and less time at the pump with its fuel rating of 25/33 MPG city/hwy1. Thanks to its steel unibody, Electric Power Steering, a MacPherson strut front suspension, and a Torsion beam rear suspension, the Forte exudes a streamlined ride at all times.

While the Kia Forte may be considered compact, it definitely doesn’t feel like it inside. It has a total interior volume of 96.3 cubic ft. and 14.9 cubic ft. of trunk room2. To complement its spacious cabin, the 2017 Forte comes equipped with a variety of accommodations. Opt for available dual-zone automatic temperature control, an optional 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a heating and ventilating function for the two front seats for optimized comfort at all times. You can even enhance the luxurious appeal of the Forte with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather upholstery, and alloy pedals. For those big shopping trips at CherryVale Mall, the 2017 Kia Forte for sale in Rockford, IL, comes standard with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat to configure the interior to your needs.

Technology is no stranger to this compact sedan. You can equip the available 7-inch touchscreen in the center stack for access to a slew of features, such as UVO eServices3. Thanks to smartphone integration with Android Auto™4 and Apple CarPlay™5, your favorite apps come to life on the display screen in a convenient manner. You can even spring for the optional Voice-Command Navigation6 infotainment system, which bundles SiriusXM® Traffic7 and HD Radio™8. In terms of safety, the Forte offers an available Rear-Camera Displaythat shows a live-feed of what lies behind you, so you can execute seamless back-up maneuvers every time you shift into reverse. A Lane Keep Assist System10 and a Forward Collision Warning System11 are a couple of additional features that are also available in the Forte.

See what else the 2017 Kia Forte for sale in Rockford, IL, can do for you here at your local Kia dealer, Rock River Block! Swing by today at 224 North Alpine Road in Rockford, IL. We look forward to working with you soon!

I purchased my first car from Rock River Ford a few weeks ago, and had a wonderful car buying experience. Everyone who I interacted with through the entire process was extremely polite and professional. I felt welcomed right away, and never felt pressured or forced to make any decisions during the process. I highly recommend this dealer if you're looking for a smooth buying experience!

Bernie made this the easiest and most personable car buying experience I've had in many years of auto purchases. He asked what I was looking for in a vehicle and what my budget was and we went from there, showing me options in makes and models then finding the one that was right. He was polite, courteous and offered none of the usual BS I've come to expect from dealerships. Mike in finance sealed the deal in no time again, making sure I was comfortable with all aspects of the deal, Truly a pleasure dealing with them both! Nice to walk out of a dealer knowing I was treated fairly and with respect.
