FORTE VS ELANTRA: PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATIONS

forte vs elantra

When it comes to standard performance equipment, the 2020 Kia Forte and the 2020 Hyundai Elantra have quite a bit in common under the hood. Both are standardly powered by a peppy 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that pumps out 147 horsepower. Both models also offer other engine options, including an available turbocharged engine that delivers a whopping 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.

Where these two models begin to differ is how they ventilate these engines. The Kia Forte offers a High Flow Active Exhaust system that is designed to keep all the heat off the engine so it can pump out as much power as possible. Unfortunately, you won't find a feature like this in the Elantra.


FORTE VS ELANTRA: INTERIOR COMFORT & SPACE

When you're searching for a sedan for your daily commute, you want something that's spacious and comfortable. Both the 2020 Kia Forte and the 2020 Hyundai Elantra offer more than 42 inches of front legroom as well as a selection of premium comfort features. In either model, you can opt for heated front seats, leather seating surfaces, and automatic climate control.

However, the Forte is a bit more accommodating. With this model, you'll get 10-way power-adjustable front seats that help you personalize your comfort a bit more than the Elantra's 8-way power-adjustable front seats.


FORTE VS ELANTRA: ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY FEATURES

As late model sedans, the 2020 Kia Forte and the 2020 Hyundai Elantra offer some of the most advanced and highly sought-after technology features on the road today. Both offer intuitive infotainment systems with Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™.

Both models also sport a variety of state-of-the-art active safety features that are designed to act like a co-pilot while you're on the road. Just a few features that these models share including blind spot monitoring, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control.

The only hitch you'll find with the Elantra is the availability of these features. The large 8-inch touchscreen display comes standard in every Kia Forte. However, you'll only get a standard 5-inch screen in the Elantra, meaning you'll need to upgrade at least a whole trim level to access a larger screen like the one you'll find in every Forte.
