Drivers who are in the market for a new sedan have a lot of options to consider for the model year 2020. While it’s always good practice to spend your time researching what makes each vehicle unique and how they compare to one another, we’ve done some of the work for you: we’ve done a side-by-side comparison of the two best sedans available. In this instance, we’re looking at the 2020 Kia Forte and the 2020 Toyota Corolla.
Every sedan should have these three strengths: a luxurious interior, a strong engine, and good fuel economy. On that first point, the Forte and the Corolla are very similar—each vehicle has multiple interior options and add-ons to better customize each car to a driver’s unique needs. But in the other two points, the Kia Forte comes out tops. It boasts 147 horsepower versus the Toyota Corolla’s 139 horsepower. EPA estimates of highway gas mileage place the Forte’s 41 mpg above the Corolla’s 39 mpg.
The Kia Forte has a few tech advantages over the Corolla as well. As more drivers opt for cars with smart technology features, manufacturers strive to make the controls for these systems easier and safer to use. The standard-issue 7-inch dash-mounted touchscreen display has gotten a slight size boost in the Forte, bring it to 8-inches, making it easier to choose the option you want without spending as much time looking at the screen. Plus, to cut down on distracted driving that can sometimes result from using a touchscreen, some of the system’s controls are integrated into buttons on the steering wheel. Both options are standard in the Kia Forte, so regardless of which means of control you use, you’ll have them at your fingertips without the need for an add-on.
