Kia Models vs Toyota Models
Kia cars are known for their curb appeal, their excellent features, their ever-growing award display case, and perhaps above all, their sense of youthfulness and fun. But they also perform, every model from the compact Kia Forte all the way to the SUV that conquers on- and off-road driving, the Kia Sorento. We at Friendly Kia have put together these research pages so you can easily refer to the qualities that make each Kia model stand out and really shine compared to the competition. You can do your research using this web page so you can find the model that works best for you, but we also encourage you to come visit us at our New Port Richey FL dealership so you can get a closer look at preferred models and take them for a test drive.
Here's a few other benefits of Kia models:
- Award-winning vehicles, such as the 2017 Kia Sportage (IIHS Top Safety Pick), 2016 Kia Soul (U.S. News & World Report 2016 Best Cars for Families) and 2016 Kia Sedona (KBB.com 16 Best Family Cars for 2016), to name a few of the awards.
- All Kia vehicles come with an industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile limited basic warranty.
Kia Forte vs. Toyota Corolla
Kia's compact comes with more horsepower and climate-control features than the Toyota Corolla, while still getting superior fuel economy at 26 mpg city, 39 mpg highway in base models. Plus, this ride's available UVO infotainment and voice-command navigation will make fun (and functional) your Forte.
Kia Optima vs. Toyota Camry
It's over before it begins in the battle between the Kia Optima and the Toyota Camry, as the Optima sports greater handling, greater room for passengers and also has prestigious awards like Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com Best Buy Award for 2016 to back up its claims.
Kia Optima Hybrid vs. Toyota Prius
The Kia Optima Hybrid and the Toyota Prius are both environmentally-friendly cars, but that's where the similarities end: The Optima Hybrid has more room, more power, and more amenities while still remaining as loyal to reducing emissions as the Toyota Prius is.
Kia Cadenza vs. Toyota Avalon
Words fail when you get a closer look at the Kia Cadenza's brash, sophisticated design which only complements its stunning 12-speaker soundsystem, 290 HP and features like available heated seats and ventilated front seats. The Toyota Avalon has decidedly less power and fewer cool features and options.
Kia Sportage vs. Toyota RAV4
Winner of recent awards from Cars.com, Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com and others, the Sportage is a road-eater of a small SUV with style, power (up to 240 HP) and towing abilities (2,000 pounds) that the Toyota RAV4 has a hard time measuring up to. Kia's longest-running nameplate is here to stay.
Kia Sorento vs. Toyota Highlander / Toyota RAV4
The Kia Sorento is a versatile mid-size SUV which caters to your every need, with eight model options that encompass everything from cargo room in excess of 70 cubic feet, to its ability to tow over two tons to its elegant interior, with available Nappa Leather seat trim.
Kia Rio vs. Toyota Yaris
Kia has a winner with the Rio, a compact with a combination of power, design and fuel economy that is anything but small, and which makes it an easy choice over the Toyota Corolla. You'll come for the easy handling and the 27 mpg city, 38 mpg highway but you'll stay for Kia's industry-leading warranty package.
Kia Sedona vs. Toyota Sienna/Highlander
The Kia Sedona is sweeping awards season, with 2015 wins in the Cars.com Ultimate Minivan contest and as Motor Trend's pick for top minivan, among other honors. Take a seat inside and see why this minivan will make every trip, no matter the size of the group, a siesta from the mundane.
Kia Soul vs. Toyota C-HR
The Kia Soul pitches a shutout when it is compared with the newcomer, the Toyota C-HR, with superior horsepower, cargo room, passenger room, available tech and apps, and awards history - to name but a few of the advantages of this fun-loving Kia crossover.
Kia Niro vs. Toyota Hybrids
The Kia Niro is a brand-new hybrid that averages 50 miles per gallon in its base trim level, which is tops in its class for compact hybrid crossovers, but it also has the cargo room of an SUV.
The Kia Stinger is the first Kia sports car, due to debut in late 2017, and its performance, transmission responsiveness and top speed demolish those of Toyota's sports car, the 86.
