2017 Kia Forte vs 2017 Toyota Corolla near Valdosta, GA

When it comes down to a competition between two compact sedans, you won’t find a better one than the 2017 Kia Forte. In our comparison of the 2017 Kia Forte vs 2017 Toyota Corolla near Valdosta, GA, the Forte comes out strong with a powerful engine, a spacious cabin, and a variety of technology strewn inside. The Corolla doesn’t even stand a chance, so get behind the wheel of the Forte when you visit Kia of Tallahassee as soon as today!

You’ll be shocked by the Forte’s ability to exude 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque. The Corolla, on the other hand, falls short with only 132 horsepower and 128 lb.-ft. of torque to offer. In case of any real emergency, where you might not be able to get out of the car, the internal emergency trunk release comes standard for your protection in the 2017 Forte. The Corolla neglects to offer this feature, which lets you open the trunk from inside if you ever needed to.

Sneak a peek at the interior to find 14.9 cubic ft. of cargo room1 in the trunk area of the Forte, which helps when you need to pack in the essentials for your first semester at Valdosta State University. With only 13 cubic ft. of space2 in the Corolla’s trunk, you’ll probably have to leave a few things behind. The Corolla only allows you 38.3 inches of headroom, since its body is only 69.9 inches wide and 57.3 inches tall. Literally enveloping the size of the Corolla, the Forte guarantees 39.1 inches of headroom inside it’s 70.1-inch wide and 56.3-inch high body. The Forte is already winning the 2017 Kia Forte vs 2017 Toyota Corolla near Valdosta, GA, competition.

The exterior mirrors on the Forte come with a standard heating function that defogs the glass for heightened visibility, while those in the Corolla do not. Enjoy remote entry via the key fob that comes standard with the 2017 Forte, and utilize the trunk-opening function for easy loading, even if your hands are full. While the Corolla fails in this category, it also lacks a solar control glass windshield, which is a standard feature in the Forte. This useful characteristic filters out ultraviolet light and reduces heat from warming up the cabin on those hot summer days at Freedom Park.

When you turn on the radio in each of these sedans, you’ll find a distinct difference in the number of channels you’ll receive. The Forte boasts standard SiriusXM Satellite Radio3, which offers over 130 channels combined with its standard AM/FM stereo system. The Corolla only lets you have this feature if you cough up a little extra for it. If you’re worried about not having enough room for the essentials within reach, breathe a sigh of relief, thanks to the Forte’s inclusion of overhead console storage. The Corolla sadly lacks this amenity.

When you get behind the wheel of the 2017 Forte, the winner of the competition between the 2017 Kia Forte vs 2017 Toyota Corolla near Valdosta, GA, you will have truly experienced greatness. Don’t hesitate to schedule a test drive in this compact sedan, so come on down to Kia of Tallahassee as soon as today!
