2016 Honda Civic vs 2016 Kia Forte
We think it’s pretty safe to assume you’ve heard of a little car called the Honda Civic. It’s only been the best-selling passenger car in the country for the past seventeen years! And after a stunning total overhaul, the compact sedan looks to keep that track record running for many years to come. But what makes it so much better than the other vehicles out there? Does it really all have to do with its sporty style, or are there other reasons. We thought we’d find out by taking a closer look at it in comparison to one of its much younger competitors, so we pit the 2016 Honda Civic vs 2016 Kia Forte.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda Civic
The table above clearly depicts the two vehicles as being very similar to one another, but it also shows that even though they’re close, the Honda Accord consistently pulls ahead in every aspect, even if only by a little. For instance, let’s start at the top with fuel efficiency. Combining the average of city and highway fuel economy ratings together, the 2016 Honda Civic utilizes approximately 0.7 l/100km less fuel than its Kia Forte competitor. Over time, that represents quite a bit of money saved at the pump.
Yet the Civic doesn’t sacrifice power for efficiency, as is clear by the second row depicting its 13-horsepower advantage. 13 HP isn’t world changing, but it’s also nothing to sneeze at. Combined with the fuel efficiency advantage, as well as the extra 0.2 cubic feet of cargo capacity and 1.8 cu. ft. of passenger volume, and you’ve got a well-rounded vehicle that offers power, efficiency and plenty of space.
If you’re looking for a stylish, sporty vehicle that also offers all of those things, then we think your choice is pretty obvious. Be sure to schedule a test drive for the 2016 Honda Civic right here on our website, or feel free to give us a call with any questions or requests that you might have.
