2015 Kia Forte Koup vs. 2015 Scion tC Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Kia Forte Koup offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Scion tC. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Scion tC, the Kia Forte Koup may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Forte Koup as you will with the Scion tC, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Kia Forte Koup will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Scion tC. 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 Koup and the Scion tC have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Kia Forte Koup is about the same width as the Scion tC. When looking at overall length, the Kia Forte Koup takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Scion tC.

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

Handling
The Kia Forte Koup has a smaller turning radius than the Scion tC, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Kia Forte Koup has less horsepower than the Scion tC, 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 Kia Forte Koup and the Scion tC. The Kia Forte Koup has less cargo capacity than the Scion tC, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Forte Koup than that of the Scion tC.
