Compare the Kia Forte vs. Hyundai Elantra in Hagerstown, MD

When you are looking for a new vehicle to take make your life easier than it has ever been, our team at Hagerstown Kia in Hagerstown, MD wants you to have all of the information before you make a decision. We make it easy to compare top models with a head-to-head look at some of the most important features. If you are trying to decide between the Kia Forte and the Hyundai Elantra, there are a lot of things to consider.

The Kia Forte is more affordable than the Hyundai Elantra, helping it reduce some stress that could come at the time payments are due. You might think that this means the Forte has less features for you to enjoy, but the opposite is true. The Forte offers UVO infotainment controller integration, a new, smartphone-driven system that uses mobile phone data to gather mapping information and to stream audio. A superior technology advantage the Hyundai Elantra cannot compare to.

Looking at each base model, the Forte continues to provide you with the features that drivers have come to love. Things like auto-off headlights, power heated exterior mirrors, and a rear camera display are standard or optional in the Forte, but not even offered on the Elantra base model. For a more affordable model with the most options, the choice is clear which would be a better choice.

If you are interested in being comfortable - and keeping your passengers comfortable - you'll want to make sure you are providing the most passenger space available. The Kia Forte has a higher passenger volume than the Elantra, with more front head room, rear legroom, and front and rear hip room. This doesn't cut into cargo space, with the Forte leading in that category too, allowing you to bring along all of the gear that you might need.

We encourage you to visit our dealership so that our team can get you on a test drive for the Forte. When you are looking for a new vehicle, it is important that you get all of the most relevant information, and if you are looking for a more affordable, more spacious, and better equipped model, the Kia Forte is your choice.
