2015 Kia Forte Koup vs. 2015 Toyota Yaris Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Kia Forte Koup offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Toyota Yaris. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Kia Forte Koup and the Toyota Yaris in the front seats.

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 Toyota Yaris, 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 Kia Forte Koup is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Yaris. 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 Toyota Yaris have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Kia Forte Koup does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Yaris.

Handling
The Kia Forte Koup has a significantly larger turning radius than the Toyota Yaris, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Forte Koup has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Yaris. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

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