2018 Kia Forte vs. Hyundai Elantra


Billings and Bozeman drivers won’t need to spend much energy comparing the 2018 Kia Forte vs. Hyundai Elantra. With stronger efficiency ratings and a whole host of exclusive features, the Elantra easily outpaces the competition. Read on see how the 2018 Elantra compares to the 2018 Forte side-by-side.


When it comes to performance, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra and Kia Forte are almost identical—almost. Both come standard with a 147-hp 2.0L inline-4 engine and offer a choice between a 6-speed automatic or manual. The differences between the two lie in fuel-efficiency:

  • Hyundai Elantra MPG Ratings : 29 mpg city/38 mpg highway
  • Kia Forte MPG Ratings : 29 mpg city/37 mpg highway

The Hyundai Elantra is more efficient on highways, meaning you can cruise through Bozeman for longer on less fuel.


The Elantra’s advanced powertrain engineering is matched by a string of top-of-the-line features to improve your drive. The Forte tries to rival it but fails to provide Sheridan drivers with the following outstanding available amenities:

  • Hands-Free Smart Trunk: No other car in the segment offers this handy hands-free trunk. You can open it simply by passing your foot beneath the bumper.
  • Clari-Fi Music Restoration Technology: This software enhances the quality of digitally compressed music. Even hardcore audiophiles will be impressed.


The interior of the Elantra isn’t just more feature-packed than that of the 2018 Kia Forte, it also offers comparable cargo space and finer fittings, such as:

  • Heated Rear Seats: Only the Elantra lets you heat the rear seats as well of those in the front.
  • Integrated Memory System: Automatically adjusts the positions of the driver seat and exterior mirrors to your specific settings.

The Elantra Outdoes the Under-Equipped Forte!

The 2018 Hyundai Elantra has been treated to some of the most advanced features around, unlike the outdated Kia Forte. Now that we’ve compared Kia vs. Hyundai, see how the Hyundai Elantra holds up against the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla!
