If you've already seen the Kia Forte compact, which hit lots a few months before the 2017 Kia Forte5 compact hatchback did, then you already know this fun hatch will make you want to high five the sales staff – and your friends – in joy.
Why is there so much jubilation? Perhaps it’s because this hatchback comes with 25 mpg city and 34 mpg highway while also giving you 23.2 cubic feet in back for cargo, which is about a 50 percent upgrade compared to the average sedan.
And with this added cargo room comes added responsibility, to paraphrase from "Spider-Man": The responsibility to handle road trips with ease and fuel savings, or to make moves to new places easier than you could imagine with all that extra room. And if you're on the fence between the 2017 Kia Forte and the 2017 Kia Forte5, this hatchback comes with about 25 percent more available maximum power at 201 HP in the top-line SX trim.
