The 2019 KIA Forte and the Hyundai Elantra are some of the best sedans that you will find in the market.

After reviewing the two cars, it is clear that the new 2019 KIA Forte has undergone a more detailed revamp compared to its predecessor. Evidently, KIA used this car to usher in the new generation of the model. The new Hyundai Elantra, on the other hand, has undergone minor improvements from its 2018 model. See how these two models compare below:


The utility and comfort that a car is capable of providing drivers are important features for aspiring car owners. This is where the 2019 KIA Forte takes a first swing at the Elantra. This is because the new 2019 KIA Forte has more headroom and legroom for both the front driver and passenger compared to the new Elantra. The spacious interior of the new Forte makes the sedan comfortable when driving over long distances compared to when using the 2019 Hyundai Elantra. It also offers a more spacious rear hip and leg room for the back passengers compared to what the Hyundai Elantra offers. The new Forte also features heated exterior mirrors that are standard for all trims with the rear-view camera being an optional feature. The new Elantra, on the other hand, does not offer heated exterior mirrors. Other standard features for the new 2019 Forte are auto-off headlights with steering wheel controls as standard features. The extra convenience features in the 2019 Forte gives you more comfort and utility compared to what the Elantra has in store for you.


Many people today want vehicles that come with enhanced safety features, and manufacturers are eager to supply just that. As such, you can expect the 2019 Forte to come with premium safety features that are standard to all trim levels. Some of the safety features that are standard for the new Forte are only available on the higher trims of the Elantra. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) voted the 2019 KIA Forte as a Top Safety Pick +, which shows that the car’s drivers will enjoy numerous safety features. The new Hyundai Elantra also comes with enhanced safety features although the new Forte outshines it in this category. The 2019 KIA Forte comes with a cruise control as a standard feature even for the lower trams while the Elantra features this feature as an option for lower level trims and standard for higher trims only.


You can expect the 2019 KIA Forte to feature extra infotainment features on lower trims compared to the ones available in the Hyundai Elantra base trims. KIA has installed Bluetooth connectivity and satellite radio as standard for lower trims, which are not standard for the lower Hyundai Elantra trims. To get the infotainment features like Bluetooth connectivity and satellite radio in the new Elantra, you need to go for medium to higher trim levels.
