You're looking for a compact car – or at least, you weren't before you got here. But that's why we're here. Hopefully you've had the chance to see the table above, and we'll now go into further detail about the matchup of three popular compacts with the 2016 Kia Forte vs. the 2016 Honda Civic vs. the 2016 Toyota Corolla. If you're in the market for a fun, feature-filled car with fine handling and an ever finer value, then these three cars are at the top of their game.

The 2016 Kia Forte perhaps has the least name recognition among the three models, but did you know it has features like an available heated steering wheel and cooling glove box? So not only can you warm your hands quickly in inclement weather, you have a place to keep your soda or water at the optimal temperature for long, sweltering trips. In addition, all three vehicles have available heated seats, which is a nice, comfy touch. But the 2016 Forte has the lowest suggested retail value of the trio, and that's especially helpful if you're a young couple or a student that needs every dollar available for keeping up with rent or student loans.

The compact class is not known for high-octane engines, normally; they are more famous for handling and fuel economy. The 2016 Kia Forte is the fastest to respond in cramped areas, with a 34.8-foot curb-to-curb turning circle, with the 2016 Civic and the 2016 Corolla falling behind at figures closer to 36 feet. And while the 2016 Civic has a peak HP of 174 in select models, the 2016 Forte is right there with a maximum power output of 173 HP, and with superior torque, 166 lb.-ft., making it easier to ride out hairpin turns or get a nice start off a red light in a busy city street if you're driving a Kia Forte.

To sum up, the 2016 Kia Forte has the most advantages of these three cars – with the superior blend of value, handling and features. If the 2016 Kia Forte were a coffee, people would be lined up to try a cup. And we are happy to say we have the Kia Forte at Airport Kia, which is located at 3325 Westview Drive in Naples, FL.
