2016 Toyota Corolla vs. 2016 Kia Forte
If you're looking for a smaller vehicle that will get you good gas mileage at an affordable price, then you're like in the market for a compact car, and the 2016 Toyota Corolla and the 2016 Kia Forte are two solid representatives of this class. They both are affordable and get good gas mileage, but when it’s all said and done, one car will be the clear victor.
The Kia Forte checks in at a lower base retail price, with a $15,990 suggested price as opposed to the 2016 Toyota Corolla's $17,230, but the word on the streets and online - well, pretty much anywhere - is the Toyota Corolla is a reliable, affordable, and fuel-efficient car that will save you money for the lifetime of the vehicle, and here's proof: 90% of all Toyota Corollas sold in the past decade are still on the road, and the Toyota Corolla was recently named Most Dependable Compact Car by J.D. Power, among other awards on the 2016 Corolla's mantelpiece, such as the NHTSA 5-Star Overall Safety Rating. The 2016 Kia Forte, while it has some nice qualities, just does not deliver the same value and reliability as the 2016 Toyota Corolla.

So far we've seen the 2016 Toyota Corolla brings more value to you and will save you more money over the lifetime of the vehicle compared to the 2016 Kia Forte. Another nice feature of the 2016 Corolla is how many options you have when picking out a car: Between trim options and grades, you have 12 different possible Corolla vehicles to choose from - and most of them for less than $20,000 - including the LE Eco model option that gets an amazing 30 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway, all for a $19,065 MSRP. The 2016 Kia Forte has no comparable eco-friendly model option, and its only other model option besides the base LX is its EX, which is nearly $1,000 more than the more fuel-efficient 2016 Toyota Corolla LE Eco. The 2016 Kia Forte EX checks in at $19,990 while also getting only 24 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.
