Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Ford Focus than in the Kia Forte Koup, due to the Ford Focus's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Focus and the Kia Forte Koup in the front seats.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Focus as you will with the Kia Forte Koup, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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).
