2016 Kia Forte5 vs. 2016 Volkswagen Golf

If you're a student, a driver with a small family or an empty nester, then hatchbacks are nice cars to consider. The 2016 Volkswagen Golf brings some heat, but the 2016 Kia Forte5 has a few tricks up its sleeve to make it a superior car. Let's take a closer look and infuse the compact hatchback class with the fun of the 2016 Forte5. The first thing you'll notice in a side-by-side is how stoic and uninviting the 2016 Golf appears, with a boxy construction and straight roofline that reflects a bygone era, while the 2016 Forte5 has a more curved and fun-loving look, with audacious front and rear accents that provide style without trying too hard. And you'll enjoy the extra space the 2016 Forte5 gives you in the trunk, thanks to its easy-access hatchback.

Speaking of audacious, the 2016 Forte5 has a see-it-to-believe it pony power of 201 HP in top-line SX models, which trumps the 2016 Golf's 170 HP. That's a lot of power in a compact package. Which makes it all the sweeter when we tell you that you can have the 2016 Forte5 for prices that start around $13,060 with Friendly Kia's VIP pricing, which is a significant savings over the competition's price of around $20,000 for a 2016 Golf.
