2017 Kia Forte vs 2017 Nissan Sentra in Kaneohe, HI

If you are looking for the ideal compact sedan, turn to the 2017 Kia Forte vs 2017 Nissan Sentra in Kaneohe, HI, comparison for your research. You’ll soon discover that the Kia Forte is the superior competitor, boasting an exhilarating performance and an array of quality amenities. See your local Kia dealer, Aloha Kia Windward, today to find out more about the outstanding Forte.

When it comes to performance, the Kia Forte sets some high standards, as it features a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that pumps out an astounding 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque. The Nissan Sentra’s 1.8L 4-cylinder powertrain can’t quite measure in comparison with its disappointing ratings of 130 horsepower and 128 lb.-ft. of torque. With the Forte’s ultra-efficient 29/38 MPG city/hwy1 fuel economy, you have an energy-saving and strong performance at your command. However, the Nissan Sentra only works out a rating of 27/35 MPG city/hwy2, so you may find yourself at the gas station more often.

Technology-wise, the Forte proves to be the more modernly-equipped compact car in this matchup between the 2017 Kia Forte vs 2017 Nissan Sentra in Kaneohe, HI. The Forte has a 7-inch touchscreen available, which brilliantly organizes all of your media and cabin controls for you. However, in the Nissan Sentra, the most it can do is give you access to an optional 5.8-inch color display. In addition, you’ll be disappointed to hear that Bluetooth®3 streaming audio doesn’t come standard in the 2017 Sentra, but the Forte does one better by including Bluetooth®4 integration in its base trim. An almost limitless variety of music, entertainment, and talk stations are available to you with the Forte’s trial subscription to SiriusXM® Satellite Radio5, which is seen in its base model. This innovation is only included in the Sentra’s higher trim levels.

As we move further in this head-to-head, you’ll see that the Kia Forte boasts much more luxurious amenities. To have dual-zone automatic climate control at your disposal in the 2017 Forte, you just have to upgrade to the second model in the lineup. On the other hand, you’re required to purchase the third trim level of the Nissan Sentra if you want access to this convenience. You may think that the Sentra’s available 6-way power-adjustable driver’s seat is impressive, but the Forte stays one step ahead by offering a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat.

With its compelling drive and feature-packed cabin, its obvious that the Kia Forte earns the winning title in this comparison of the 2017 Kia Forte vs 2017 Nissan Sentra in Kaneohe, HI. All you have to do is visit Aloha Kia Windward to test drive this sensational compact sedan. Our skilled staff can help you customize a Forte of your very own, so make sure to stop by soon!
