2018 Kia Forte vs 2018 Toyota Corolla in Lihue, HI

2018 Kia Forte vs 2018 Toyota Corolla in Lihue, HI

2018 Kia Forte shown above with optional equipment. 

Take the reins of a pristine compact sedan that holds efficiency and interior comforts to the highest standard today when you swing by Aloha Kia. Here, you will come face-to-face with a ride that dominates the market in more ways than one, giving you a full circle drive that will have you longing to hop back into the cabin. If you haven’t already noticed, the 2018 Kia Forte is a top-notch driving option that will have you falling in love the moment you slip into the driver’s seat. Don’t believe us? We have crafted a head to head matchup between the aforementioned ride and the 2018 Toyota Corolla to lend a better idea at how this bad boy fares against similar vehicles in its class. Once you notice the true winner, come on down to the dealership to take it for a test drive. We are located at 4359 Pahe’e Street in Lihue, HI and look forward to your visit.

Before we take a glance at the brute force rumbling beneath the hood of the Forte, let’s start this battle by taking a quick peek at the interiors of each ride to see how well they handle your evening carpools. Raring and ready for any roadtrip, the Forte provides you and your favorite copilot with heated and ventilated front seats to keep you two comfortable no matter the season. Unfortunately, the season definitely matters when you choose the Corolla, as it only provides heated seats, which doesn’t do us too much good with our fantastic weather here in Hawaii. If you want to take things to the pinnacle of luxury, the 2018 Forte has your back with the option to spring for the available leather-trimmed 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with memory settings. This way, you and your spouse can trade off your time spent inside the Forte without having to constantly adjust your mirrors and seat to get back to where you want to be. The Corolla, unfortunately, does not have these settings.

With all of this comfort at your disposal, you definitely need a ride that is ready to motivate your morning commutes down Kaluahonu Road. Luckily for you, the 2018 Forte comes stacked up with a powertrain lineup that is ready to impress, beginning with the standard 2.0L Multi-point Injection (MPI) 4-cylinder engine. This bad boy certainly gets things going, cranking out 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque. When it comes to the Corolla, this sedan comes standard with a 1.8L 4-cylinder powertrain that gives off a measly 132 horsepower and 128 lb.-ft. of torque. If you need a little more verve to sate your need for speed, you can opt for the 2.0L Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) 4-cylinder powerhouse in the Forte that dishes out 164 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque. When you choose the 1.8L 4-cylinder engine in the Corolla, you will only have a displeasing 140 horsepower and 126 lb.-ft. of torque.

When it comes to the matchup between the 2018 Kia Forte vs 2018 Toyota Corolla in Lihue, HI, the true winner is clear. Come check out the Forte today when you swing by Aloha Kia for a test drive! We have flexible business hours for your utmost convenience.
