Test Drive the 2017 Kia Forte in Yuma AZ
The 2017 Kia Forte has a few tricks up its sleeve that puts it ahead of the competition. For example, the base Forte S comes available with an optional navigation system, power sunroof with tilt, power driver's seat with memory settings, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The base Ford Focus has these features available on some of its higher trims, however its base model does not come available with any of these options. You also get more space in the Forte compared to the Focus, especially in the passenger volume and cargo areas. Finally, as you can see from the chart, the 2017 Forte comes available with a UVO eServices multimedia system that features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. These smartphone connectivity platforms allow you to sync up your device to your Forte's touchscreen display for easy access to navigation, messages, apps, and more. The new Ford Focus does not have these capabilities.
