2017 Kia Forte Safety Ratings & Features_o

Not only was the Kia Forte named the highest-rated compact car in the 2017 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study, but it also got a pretty high recognition from another major institution as well. Each time a new vehicle is created, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety—also known as the IIHS—puts vehicles through crashworthiness tests, awarding them ratings for each test and then averaging them into an overall score. This year, the 2017 Kia Forte earned a safety rating of Top Safety Pick +, so we thought we’d explain what that means and detail a few of the features that helped it earn that.

What are the 10 Most Awarded Vehicles of 2017_o

There is a seemingly endless number of awards handed out within the automotive industry every year, with many of them being credible and important and many more coming from tertiary journalists and so on. But sources like Motor Trend, Kelley Blue Book, Cars.com et cetera often give out awards that many people pay attention to. We always like to see when one of our vehicles receives an award from one of these publications, and even more so if KBB.com recognizes one of our vehicles among the 10 Most Awarded Vehicles of a certain year. For 2017, two different Kia models made it onto that list, and we couldn’t be more pleased. Read the rest of this entry »
