Kia Forte vs Toyota Corolla
In the battle between the Kia Forte vs. Toyota Corolla, which sedan will win? When it comes to comparing these two cars, they’re evenly matched in a lot of areas. However, only one ride is best suited for your Jenkintown, Rydal, and Glenside lifestyle. To help you learn more about the Forte and the Corolla, Sussman Kia created this informative comparison. Read on to learn how their engines, interior amenities, and safety features stack up against each other.
Suited for the Road Ahead
You go everywhere in your car, from long road trips to early morning commutes to work. When you’re spending more time in your car, you probably want to be maximizing your fuel efficiency, whereas when you’re powering down the highway, you may want a more exhilarating ride. To help you select a drive mode to best suit your mood, these sedans feature available Drive Mode Select. Choose from Normal, Smart, or Sport mode to tailor your ride to what the road calls for.
Despite a customizable ride in both cars, you’ll probably notice a difference in the way the 2019 Kia Forte and Toyota Corolla handle. The standard 2.0-liter Multipoint Injection 4-cylinder engine on the Forte outputs 147 horsepower to help you enjoy smooth and quick accelerations. The Corolla falls short, though, offering only 132 horsepower on its standard 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine.
Interior Amenities and Comforts
When you’re jetting down the highway enjoying the thrill of your ride, you’ll be grateful for a comfortable and entertaining cabin to keep you engaged. The Kia Forte comes with a standard 8-inch touchscreen with available Premium Navigation. The Corolla doesn’t quite measure up with its standard 6.1-inch display. The available navigation system does upgrade the screen to seven inches, but it’s still surpassed by the one found in the Forte.
Control your navigation display from the comfort of your available heated front seats in the Forte and Corolla. Stay relaxed even during hotter weather with the Forte, though, since it also offers available ventilated front seating. Unfortunately, this feature is not available in the Corolla, meaning you might not cool down as quickly on hot summer days.
Designed to Keep You Safe
When it comes to safety, both sedans are equipped to detect potential collisions to help you stay alert and secure. With these vehicles, you’ll find Lane Departure Warning, Forward-Collision Avoidance-Assist with Pedestrian Detection, and Smart Cruise Control systems available. However, you may find extra protection when parking with the Forte.
The Forte offers available Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning and Parking Distance Warning-Reverse to monitor the areas around your car to alert you of any obstacles, so you can feel confident backing out in a busy parking lot or pulling into a tight parking space. The Corolla doesn’t offer these safety systems, so you won’t have an extra set of eyes when you’re parking.
And the Winner Is…
It was a close race, but with a more powerful engine, interior comfort, and advanced safety features, the 2019 Kia Forte is the clear winner. There’s even more to love about this Kia sedan, like an expansive cargo area and impressive fuel economy. Visit Sussman Kia to test drive the Forte and see why it won out over the Toyota Corolla.
