Interior Changes – 2018 Kia Forte in North Carolina

There are more options available on the base level 2018 model than there were on the previous 2017 model. If you were looking at the earlier model last year and were disappointed that the base-level trim didn’t come with the option of getting Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, the new model year has you covered. It’s now available as optional equipment on the latest KIA Forte. One nice feature that we love is the ability to use steering wheel mounted audio and hands-free voice controls. However, in the older model, this was only standard equipment on the S and EX trim. Now, it also comes included on the LX trim level. There are many small changes like this, which make it easier for you to select the trim level that works for you without having to sacrifice if you want to save your pocketbook. With so many changes, the best way to find out what model year is best for you is to come down to our dealership and check both models out.

Safety Changes – 2018 Kia Forte

The 2018 Kia Forte offers more standard safety features on the EX trim level. For example, Blind Spot Detection was listed as an option for the previous model year, but the new model year offers Blind Spot Detection as standard equipment when you get the EX trim. The 2017 Kia Forte may have had the option of getting these advanced safety features, but you had to pay more for them. Now, with the new KIA Forte, you’ll get more value, and both options will cost you about the same.
