The exteriors of these two vehicles are very similar in shape and dimension, however, the 2016 Kia Forte offers a larger interior and slightly more fuel efficient engine. The streaked back headlights and carved body design looks sleek and aerodynamic, all without making the vehicle unaffordable. Under the hood of the 2016 Forte, you will find a 1.8-liter inline-four-cylinder engine that achieves an impressive 37 miles per gallon on the highway. The 2016 Ford Focus's grille and headlights design is just as fluid and modern as the 2016 Kia Forte, but the slightly longer body of the Forte means more comfortable seating space for passengers in the rear, and additional cargo space with the rear seat folded.
Looking to the interior, the designers of each vehicle made sure to include comfort and convenience in the appearance, but without crowding the control center. A brightly lit dashboard and center stack comes with the option of a LCD touchscreen in both vehicles, but only the Forte comes with two standard interior power outlets. The interior of the Forte feels more spacious because there is slightly more passenger space, but also because the simplistic design feels less crowded than that of the Focus. It's clear with the more efficient engine, larger passengers space, and high-tech interior convenience features that the 2016 Kia Forte is a truly impressive value.
