2018 FIAT 500L vs. 2018 Kia Forte Review

Comparison Review

The FIAT 500L offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Kia Forte. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500L, drivers may find the Kia Forte a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

The Kia Forte requires fewer visits to the gas station than the FIAT 500L, making it more convenient to drive.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The FIAT 500L is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Forte. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the FIAT 500L is much higher than that for the Kia Forte.

The FIAT 500L is a little wider than the Kia Forte, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the FIAT 500L takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Forte.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the FIAT 500L does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Kia Forte.

The FIAT 500L has a smaller turning radius than the Kia Forte, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the FIAT 500L is somewhat more powerful than the Kia Forte.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the FIAT 500L and the Kia Forte.

The basic warranty of the FIAT 500L is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Forte.
