If it's fuel economy and style you desire, then you've come to the best possible place, since we're just now commencing with our comparison of the 2017 Kia Forte and the 2017 Toyota Corolla. The 2017 Corolla gets a solid 28 mpg city and 36 mpg highway in its base trim level, but the 2017 Forte rises to the occasion with the superb base fuel economy of 29 mpg city, 38 mpg highway.
The 2017 Kia Forte is a redesigned compact car with the looks of a European sedan and the technology of a futuristic flying saucer, with an exterior that is modeled after the Red Dot design award-winning 2016 Kia Optima sedan, and the available tech-savvy UVO3 eServices package. The 2017 Toyota Corolla is a best-selling compact that carries the classic Toyota car look, with tech that is ample but not as loaded as the 2017 Forte's. In the 2017 Forte, in trim options with UVO eServices you have 8GB of storage space for your music and available voice-command navigation, as well as access to Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. In the 2017 Corolla, you are not able to sync up your smartphone with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
