2018 Kia Forte Vs. 2018 Chevrolet Cruze

2018 Kia Forte Vs. 2018 Chevrolet Cruze on split screen image

Compact cars have picked up a bit of an unfair reputation for being light on budget and features. These vehicles, after all, were born out of a desire to spend as little as possible for whatever could be considered a “car” and many manufacturers never gave a second thought to offering more. These vehicles are fuel efficient and agile, allowing urban drivers and first-car drivers to enjoy transportation without too many extra frills.

Luckily, the Kia Forte has redefined what should be expected from a compact car. By offering drivers a ton of style, plenty of standard features and the safety and reliability that is usually reserved for midsize and full-size cars, you’re able to take advantage of some of the most compelling specs and features available in the model’s class and at its low price. Going up against the Forte is the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze. Let’s see how they do:
