2019 Kia Forte vs 2019 Honda Civic

2019 Kia Forte vs 2019 Honda Civic

Currently, many American automotive makers are distancing their focus from sedan models and are instead looking towards a future centered on trucks and crossovers. On the other hand, foreign manufacturers are still set on creating many spectacular sedan models for the public. Two of those models make up our comparison today. Those would be the 2019 Kia Forte and the 2019 Honda Civic.

So, what makes either compact sedan a worthy purchase? What aspects of the build are attractive to potential customers and drivers? In the case of the 2019 Forte and the 2019 Civic, as well as compact sedans in general, that would be an affordable price, a high fuel economy, and plenty of standard convenience features. Therefore, let’s keep those in mind as we compare the 2019 Kia Forte against the 2019 Honda Civic!

The main point that detracts from the 2019 Honda Civic is its fuel economy. The standard 2019 Honda Civic has a manual transmission that pairs it with its lowest fuel economy across its trim levels. An automatic transmission option and additional engine options improve the fuel economy of the 2019 Honda Civic quite a bit, but the same can be said for the 2019 Kia Forte’s upper trims. However, that’s beside the point as the 2019 Kia Forte has a better fuel economy, a better warranty, and a much lower price with its initial trim level.

As for features, the 2019 Kia Forte has the following to offer:

  • Drive Mode Select
  • UVO eServices
  • Rear Camera Display
  • Solar Control Glass
  • LED Exterior Lighting
  • LED Interior Lighting
  • Pedestrian Detection
  • Smart Trunk™
  • SOFINO Leatherette Upholstery
  • Heated and Ventilated Seating
  • Smart Cruise Control
  • Wireless Phone Charger
