Made for PEACE OF MIND

Every Forte is built on a strong foundation. Its uniquely engineered body combines various high-tensile strength steel alloys. The body structure not only helps provide excellent crash protection, it also contributes to better driving dynamics and a remarkably quiet ride.

Made for THE NICK OF TIME

We’ve got your back — and your front and sides. The 2017 Forte protects you and your passengers with advanced dual front, side impact and curtain airbags with finely tuned sensors for the best possible performance. Combined, they help protect you in collisions big and small.
