Test drive the new Kia Forte


Kia Forte vs Honda Civic

  • Between both models, it's ours that's better-equipped to keep entertainment, connectivity, and vehicle functions at your fingertips for the ride. Your choice of two sizable UVO infotainment system options appears, each with a 7-inch touchscreen and one with voice-command navigation, a directional convenience even kept affordable in the top of the line, in Kia Forte EX. The new Civic only offers a 5-inch LCD in its LX base.
  • Forte gets a five-star Overall Rating from the NHTSA* for the ability to withstand a crash, as well as an IIHS 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+**, the highest possible rating from the expert. Honda Civic also earns five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but its "Poor" headlight rating keeps it out of the running for TSP, let alone the higher TSP+, giving Kia the advantage when it comes to your peace of mind.
  • A new Kia Forte is even the more cost-effective option when comparably equipped. A base model weighs in at approximately $17,695, while Civic LX costs around $19,835 to start.
  • Best of all, it's Kia that's the better value, with a basic warranty of 60 months or 60,000 miles and a 120-month/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Honda's warranty covers but 36 months or 36,000 miles and 60 months or 60,000 miles respectively.

Kia Forte vs Volkswagen Jetta

  • The new Forte outclasses VW Jetta in the entertainment options, interoperability, and functional control it puts within your reach for your travels. Its two 7-inch touchscreen-equipped UVO infotainment system options surpass the new Jetta base S model's 6.5-inch Composition Color touchscreen in size, and our voice-command navigation system, standard in the fully loaded Forte EX, is more accessible cost-wise to boot.
  • Ours is also the roomier option, with more overall passenger space, 96.2 cubic feet to 94.7. That's ampler front head and leg room as well as front and rear shoulder room. Ditto for cargo volume -- Forte sprawls out a touch further than VW Jetta, 14.9 cubic feet to 14.1.
  • A five-star Overall Rating from the NHTSA* for crash testing and the highest safety rating from the IIHS, 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+**, put Kia Forte squarely in the lead on drive-time security. The 2018 Volkswagen Jetta received five stars from the former, but the latest 2019 model isn't rated by either authority yet. Plus, if it's any indication for the People's Car's newer model, 2018 Jetta fell just short of Insurance Institute for Highway Safety criterion for TSP, with only Marginal headlights.
  • Between the two, a new Kia Forte is the less expensive option. It's priced around $17,695 when comparably equipped, whereas a new Jetta requires an approximate $19,890 investment.
  • Kia is also the superior testament to quality, offering 120 months or 100,000 miles of powertrain warranty coverage. Jetta's maxes out at 72 months or 72,000 miles.
