2015 Honda Civic vs. 2015 Kia Forte Koup Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Forte Koup than the Honda Civic, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Civic and the Kia Forte Koup in the front seats.

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

Cost
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 Honda Civic is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Forte Koup. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Civic and the Kia Forte Koup have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic is a little narrower than the Kia Forte Koup, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Honda Civic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Forte Koup.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Honda Civic doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia Forte Koup.

Handling
The Honda Civic has about the same turning radius as the Kia Forte Koup, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda Civic has less horsepower than the Kia Forte Koup, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Civic and the Kia Forte Koup. The Honda Civic has less cargo capacity than the Kia Forte Koup, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Civic is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Forte Koup.
