2017 Kia Forte

With just one look at the compact sedan segment, it’s clear to see that you have your work cut out for you with finding the perfect model. Here at Aloha Kia, we decided to help you out. Our comparison of the 2017 Kia Forte vs 2017 Toyota Corolla in Kaneohe, HI, puts two of the top models side by side to see which one comes out on top. And, in more ways than one, that vehicle is the Forte.

When it comes to performance, you don’t want a less-than-thrilling ride to look forward to every morning. In this section of the head-to-head battle, we find that the Kia Forte's drive is quite the opposite of mundane. The Forte offers two engine choices, both of which prevail against the Corolla’s powertrain options. With the Kia Forte’s 2.0L I-4 Atkinson Cycle engine, you’ll have 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque, while its 2.0L I-4 powerhouse in the EX trim delivers 164 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque. If you’re in the Corolla, you’ll only enough power to reach a maximum 140 horsepower and 128 lb.-ft. of torque via its 1.8L 4-cylinder engine.

Comfort is a huge factor when considering your next new car, and the Forte knows just what its customers like. To make the humidity and heat of Hawaii a little more tolerable, the 2017 Forte offers a ventilating capability in the two front seats. The Toyota Corolla, on the other hand, only equips a heating function. Along with this, the Forte also boasts an available dual-zone automatic temperature control system, so both you and your front passenger can set and enjoy your individual climates. In the Corolla, only automatic climate control is available. We also see in this matchup of the 2017 Kia Forte vs 2017 Toyota Corolla in Kaneohe, HI, that the Forte offers an optional 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, while the Corolla only equips an available 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat.

In this day and age, technology matters. And, for some, it can be the determining factor between two vehicles. In this comparison, we see that the Forte equips just a bit more options for you to enjoy. Available in all three trims, the Forte outfits two 12-volt power outlets for you to plug your devices in. The Toyota Corolla only provides one standard 12-volt power outlet in all of its trims. While the Corolla tries to keep up by offering Siri® Eyes Free1 as part of its Entune™ infotainment system, it still falls short to the Forte. In the 2017 Kia Forte, both Apple CarPlay™2 and Android Auto™3 are available to you, providing you with optimum access to your smartphone’s applications.

That’s all for now with our comparison of the 2017 Kia Forte vs 2017 Toyota Corolla in Kaneohe, HI. And, we feel that the Kia Forte is the winner by a longshot! Come on down to see what else the Forte has to offer here at Aloha Kia Windward.

Shopped for a Sedona

Worked with Martin who was very patient and not pushy at all. He answered all of our questions to the best of his ability and sought help when he didn't. He came across very honest and genuine, as did the other financial guys we worked with. Thanks for our Sedona. My mom is loving it so far!

Shirly Cadiaza and her manager Bradford Jacinto were really helpful in helping me with purchasing a nice, pre-owned Hyundai Solanta with favorable financing. Although it has been awhile since I financed a vehicle, the process was painless. Both were professional, personable and helpful. Thank you.

Our representative was Martin. He was warming and very polite. Never had a problem during price negotiation and the buying process. Our family has always bought from Toyota and even after telling him that, not once did he criticize our opinion or put us down. Would recommend to others.

Sales associate Chris was great. Very knowledgeable and respectful. I never felt pressured to buy. Chris didn't sell so much as he answered all my questions patiently. But do your homework. Like most new car buying experience, once you are in their office they will try to get you to buy their car using many of the old tricks. They are trying to make a profit after all. So that's fair and to be expected. They don't disrespect but they wint roll over so easily on your first offer. You can get a fair deal on a new car. Do. Your. Homework.
