2018 Hyundai Elantra GT vs. 2018 Kia Forte Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Hyundai Elantra GT than in the Kia Forte, due to the Hyundai Elantra GT's smaller rear 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.

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.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Elantra GT will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Hyundai Elantra GT and the Kia Forte have similar Destination Charges.

The Hyundai Elantra GT is about the same width as the Kia Forte. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Elantra GT takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Forte.

With similar torque, the Hyundai Elantra GT and the Kia Forte do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

The Hyundai Elantra GT has about the same turning radius as the Kia Forte, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

The Hyundai Elantra GT has less horsepower than the Kia Forte, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Elantra GT and the Kia Forte.

The Hyundai Elantra GT comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Kia Forte.
