The Kia Forte and Chevrolet Cruze comparison arise because of similarities in type and pricing. While it is true that both cars belong to the sedan type, and are known for their functional if not earth-shattering looks, the price similarities should be considered with a bit of caution. The Kia Forte works out to be slightly cheaper than the Chevrolet Cruze. The difference can range from a few hundred dollars to more. If you are price conscious, then the Kia Forte might have many things to offer you.

While on the question of external appearance, the Kia Forte also offers many colors for the exteriors. The Cruze comes in two basic colors of white and silver. The Kia, on the other hand, can be in a range of colors starting from black, white, silver, to blue, red and even bronze. The Kia is also slightly shorter in length than the Chevrolet Cruze, and this might make it easier for you to park and reverse your vehicle more easily.

Engine and Output

Another factor is the engine capacity. The Chevrolet Cruze comes with a 1.4-liter engine. Whether this has an impact on performance must be discussed next. The Kia Forte, on the other hand, has a 2.0 Liter engine. Both cars possess front wheel drive, so you can expect comparable performance on rough roads.

Interiors and Space

The cars can accommodate five people. How comfortable they can be accommodated depends on many factors. If you are concerned about how nice the interiors appear, the Kia Forte will offer the best options for you. While the Chevrolet Cruze interiors are an overwhelming black, which people may either like very much or not feel comfortable about, the Kia Forte offers another option in the form of gray interiors. The interiors are made even more comfortable thanks to the extra room in the Kia Forte. There is more room for front row occupants, and this makes it all the more easy to enjoy long journeys in your Kia Forte. The back row seats are not cramped either, with the Kia Forte falling just slightly short of leg space. The Kia Forte is also slightly ahead in terms of cargo space offered.

If you want to test drive the Kia Forte, you can schedule a visit to your New Jersey Kia dealership. Additionally, you might want to look at more Kia cars in the inventory, should you be targeting another model and make, or year of Kia Forte.
