The 2016 Honda Civic vs. the 2016 Kia Forte

The 2016 Honda Civic and the 2016 Kia Forte are both small cars that offer efficiency, versatility, and a fun-to-drive nature. Both provide what most drivers who want a small affordable car are looking for here in the Frankfort and Orland Park, IL area, but when you look a little closer you’ll see that they have some major differences!

Performance and Efficiency

These two cars are not equals when it comes to power and efficiency.

The 2016 Kia Forte comes standard with a 1.8L four-cylinder that produces 145 hp and 130 lb-ft of torque, and earns an EPA estimate of 25 mpg city/37 mpg highway/30 mpg. You can upgrade to a 2.0L four-cylinder good for 173 hp and 154 lb-ft of torque and an EPA estimated 24 mpg city/35 mpg highway/28 mpg combined.

The Honda Civic comes standard with a 2.0L four-cylinder that makes 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque and earns an EPA estimated 31 mpg city/41 mpg highway/35 mpg combined* when paired with a continuously variable transmission. A 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder is also available. This engine makes 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque and earns an EPA estimated 31 mpg city/42 mpg highway/35 mpg combined with standard continuously variable transmission.

The Honda Civic is clearly the winner whether power or efficiency is your priority.
