2021 Kia Forte vs 2021 Toyota Corolla

Serving Gainesville, FL

Today’s drivers have high standards for their next compact car’s capabilities and features. While there are many stylish compact cars on the market today, there are significant differences between some top models. The 2021 Kia Forte may have a solid position at the top of your list today, often compared to the Toyota Corolla. As you begin comparing these models, the Forte’s more affordable base MSRP may capture your attention. Are you ready to explore the other differences between the Forte and the Corolla?


The Forte’s façade is relentlessly athletic with powerful definition swooping down the hood and several bold accents running across the sides. The attractive nose shows off a small grille that sits above a sporty bumper. The unique headlights have an X-style design embedded in them. In comparison, the Toyota Corolla’s accents through the hood and sides are less defined. The headlights have a hook-like quality, and they are linked by a thin accent bar. A large, black grille consumes the majority of the pointed nose.


Inside both of these models, you can find an elevated display screen that provides the driver with easy access to a wide range of technologies. In the Forte, the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features are standard at all trim levels. The Kia Forte also has a navigation system, a sound system, a sunroof, a USB port, power-adjusting seats, and other gear. Inside the Toyota Corolla, you could find standard features like upholstered seats, power windows, power door locks, and a sound system with six speakers.


You can enjoy substantially more power behind the Forte’s wheel. The Forte has two gas-powered engines. The 147-horsepower, 2.0-liter powertrain is in the Forte’s first four trims. The top two Forte trims have a 201-horsepower, 1.6-liter turbo engine. On the other hand, the Toyota Corolla is offered with two gas-powered engines and a hybrid engine. The most powerful option in the 2021 Corolla is a 2.0-liter, 169-horsepower engine.
