2014 Hyundai Elantra GT vs. 2014 Kia Forte Review

Comparison Review


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

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