2017 Honda Civic vs 2017 Kia Forte near Bowie, MD

2017 Honda Civic vs 2017 Kia Forte near Bowie, MD

The vehicle above is the 2017 Honda Civic in Rallye Red. 

Choosing your perfect compact sedan isn’t an easy task, especially with such a large number of options to choose from. Fortunately, we at Pohanka Honda can make the process a little easier with our 2017 Honda Civic vs 2017 Kia Forte comparison. We’ll show you all that these vehicles have to offer, then, you can go ahead and decide for yourself. Our staff here at Pohanka Honda knows who the real winner will be!

Let’s begin with the heart of the matter—the powertrain. The Civic boats a 2.0L Inline-4 engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, ready and waiting to exert up to 158-hp and 138 lb.-ft. of torque. Although the Forte also comes equipped with a standard 2.0L engine and 6-speed manual transmission, its power falls just slightly short at 147-hp and 132 lb.-ft. of torque.

When it comes to saving you time at the pump, the Civic does the job with a fuel economy of 28/40/32 MPG city/hwy/combined1, while the Forte might have you stopping to refuel more often with a 25/34/28 city/hwy/combined2 fuel rating. Both have the option to upgrade to an automatic transmission, so that you can enjoy effortless shifting along Highway 197 and beyond. 

When you endure long commutes or simply love taking weekend getaways with the family, you’ll want to ensure that your vehicle has plenty of space to accommodate you, your passengers, and your cargo. You and your copilot will be able to stretch out in the Civic with 42.3 inches of legroom, while your rear seat riders will have more than enough space to relax with 37.4 inches of legroom. The Forte, on the other hand, may have you feeling slightly cramped with 42.2 inches in the front—just short of the Civic. In the rear, however, it only offers 35.9 inches of legroom, which may not go over well with your passengers. Additionally, the Civic proudly offers 15.1 cubic ft. of cargo volume3, while the Forte musters up a little less space with only 14.9 cubic ft. of stow-away-room4.

After reading our 2017 Honda Civic vs 2017 Kia Forte near Bowie, MD, comparison, the choice is clear. If you’re looking for a vehicle that offers power, fuel efficiency, and plenty of space, the 2017 Civic is a sure winner. Visit Pohanka Honda at 1772 Ritchie Station Court in Capitol Heights, MD, to see it up close and in person. We look forward to meeting you soon!

My wife and I walked in today not to buy,but just test drive the later minivan. Lamin asked us a few questions regarding why we were there today. Due to exceptional service and attention to detail, long story short we traded in both of our BMWs for 2 Hondas! Steve is the manager and he was phenomenal. Needless to say we were well taken care of. Our rates were rock bottom, and we traded out of our older BMWs before maintenance issues arise and drove off with 2 brand new vehicles! Overall 10/10 experience!

After looking online and becoming discouraged briefly by a shady experience with a big dealership in VA, I was incredibly fortunate to have stopped by this dealership which is tucked away off of the Ritchie-Marlboro Exit 13 off of 495. I had the most excellent salesperson that I've ever encountered--Rose. She was knowledgeable, respectful, patient, and beyond encouraging. No pressure, no hassle, no tricks (no...seriously). Even in a pandemic, the selection was decent and the process was smooth from my tour of the lot all the way to checkout. I found an even better car than I was originally looking for and for the perfect price. If you're tired of sifting through so-called "hot deals" online like I was and you're past ready to bring home a new chariot for your royal family, you owe it to yourself to stop by this dealership. #realtalk

Best buying experience I have had. Purchased a used late model RAM. everything was negotiated up front (including trade) and there were zero surprises. Everything as promised. Best part came when I realized that the truck had no running boards. I had missed that in the pictures. When I mentioned that my wife has a bad back and that the running boards would be an issue, they called a local dodge dealer and agreed to pay for installation. Even called the dodge dealer to let them know I was coming. JT, Perlita, Jerod, and Judaea were all great. Could not be happier.

I had a good experience since the virus. I was treated well by Don, my service advisor, I was out pretty close to the estimated time. I was treated like a valuable customer. I have not driven my vehicle since I left the dealer but I try to keep up with my maintenance. I've been with Pohanka since 1990 and would definitely recommend Pohanka Honda. The car wash was broken and this was a little disappointing when I saw my vehicle but service and advisor were great. Thank you.

I am so overwhelmed with gratitude because of the excellent service that I received from Ms Jasmine Collins in selling me the HRV EX on May 7, 2020. The process went extremely smoothly from the buying of the car to delivery of it. She was very patient in explaining the car features to my wife and setting up various functions on the display screen. My wife thoroughly enjoys driving the car and often mentions how much Jasmine has helped her. Please express a big thank you to her for us. Thank you also, Honda for your valuable service.
