2018 Kia Forte's Exterior Changes

The previous model year of the KIA Forte is almost the same as the new model year. While the 2018 and the 2017 model years have the same exact exterior specifications, the 2018 model year has the benefit of a year's worth of service on the road. This gave the engineers some extra information to ensure that the new model year runs better, looks better and has more to offer than the previous model year.
