2016 Kia Forte vs. 2016 Toyota Corolla

2016 Kia Forte compact vs. Toyota Corolla Friendly Kia Tampa FL

Looking for a fun ride, one which will treat you just as well on the road as it does your pocketbook? You're getting warmer already, with two compacts - the 2016 Kia Forte and the 2016 Toyota Corolla - that bring smooth handling and nice value to the table, among other benefits. Stay with us for a bit and we'll see which of these is the most fantastic, feature-packed and fun.

First off, at Friendly Kia in New Port Richey FL we offer the 2016 Kia Forte for prices starting around $13,470 for base LX models, which is a tremendous savings over a 2016 Toyota Corolla, which at our competitor's dealership goes for about $2,000 more with a starting price of around $15,754 for base models. That's huge. If it were just price you were concerned with, you could stop here - but the Forte tops the Corolla in so many categories, you'll want to stick around.

One of the many advantages of compacts is their small size and the ability to fit into tight spaces as well as handle curves with ease, and both of these cars have these traits. Good gas mileage is another quality you expect, and the 2016 Kia Forte tops the 2016 Toyota Corolla for combined fuel economy in base models, with the Forte getting 26 mpg city, 39 mpg highway for models with an automatic transmission, while the 2016 Corolla gets 27 city, 36 highway for its base models. Another cause for celebrating the 2016 Forte is Kia's rock-solid 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, which includes a five-year/60,000-mile limited basic warranty. The Corolla, on the other hand, has just a five-year/60,000-mile limited powertrain coverage and a three-year/36,000-mile limited basic warranty.

Compacts are not normally known for their extras - that's usually the domain of larger cars. But you'd be surprised just how much is packed into the 2016 Kia Forte. For example, it comes with an available heated steering wheel, plus available heated front and rear seats in top-of-the-line EX models, while the 2016 Corolla only offers heated front seats in select models. Not to mention the 2016 Forte comes with a standard cooling glove box in EX models, perfect for those warm spring and summer days where your beverages - or even something that melts like chocolate - are a constant threat to heat up. The 2016 Corolla comes with no such feature.

We've said a lot about the superior blend of the 2016 Kia Forte, so take a break from us and see what renowned experts say about the Forte's 2016 model, which received a 5/5 from J.D. Power in its 2016 Initial Quality Study, an exceptional accomplishment. And at the mountaintop the 2016 Forte will remain, thanks to its fun, fuel-efficiency and features.

Finally, the 2016 Kia Forte has more room in the back for you to put your bags and equipment, 14.9 cubic feet, while the 2016 Toyota Corolla has 13.0 cubic feet. That space can mean the difference between bringing enough camping equipment to have the perfect weekend or leaving some crucial items at home. So it looks to be a clean sweep for the 2016 Forte, with superior prices, features and fuel economy. We carry the Kia Forte on the Friendly Kia lot, and it would be our pleasure to set you up with this fun, powerful compact. In addition, every car you buy at Friendly Kia will get lifetime free car washes on-site at the dealership.
