Kia Forte vs. Hyundai Elantra: Pricing and Performance

Will the Kia Forte or Hyundai Elantra offer better handling and fuel economy? If you spend a lot of time on the highway to Big Timber, you’ll appreciate the higher torque of the Elantra engine. The Elantra also features a smaller turning radius compared to the Forte, which gives the Elantra better maneuverability in tight spaces while driving in downtown Livingston. When it comes to saving fuel, the Elantra Eco engine has a big advantage: the Engine Start/Stop. This feature turns off the engine and automatically restarts when you hit the gas.
