There are plenty of sedan type cars on the market today, but the Kia Forte and the Toyota Corolla are the best out there. These two cars come with fabulous features and are known for their stylish looks and superb performance.


If you are looking for a low-priced car, the Kia Forte is the better choice. This car comes with superior features and some cool technology, all under $20000. The car also comes with innovative design, offering a cool looking exterior that will grab attention anywhere.

The curved grille and front part of the car also add to the exterior appeal. The Toyota Corolla, while not badly designed, looks more conventional. If contemporary styles please you, then the Kia Forte is likely to be the car that you would want to be seen driving around.


The Toyota Corolla offers slightly more fuel efficiency than the Forte. Both cars have similarly sized fuel tanks so you can expect around the same range from the cars. The Kia Forte has a smaller turn radius, so it is expected to make driving easier for you particularly on crowded or small roads. The Kia Forte supplies more torque to the wheels, and this could lead to greater speed. The Kia Forte also shows more engine output. It has a 2.0-liter engine which comes with an output of 147 HP as against the 132 HP that the Toyota Corolla, with the 1.8 liters it can muster.

The Kia Forte comes with manual transmission, and this is something that the Corolla may not feature. Both cars are rated high for overall safety during crash tests, but the Kia Forte does better in matters of driver safety rating.
