2017 Kia Forte vs. 2017 Honda Fit Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Fit than the Kia Forte, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia Forte will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Fit.

Convenience
The Kia Forte will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Honda Fit, making it more convenient to drive.

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

Dimensions
Since the Kia Forte is much wider than the Honda Fit, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Kia Forte, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Honda Fit.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Kia Forte transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Honda Fit.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Kia Forte and the Honda Fit.
