Top automakers make it a priority to engineer their vehicles to shine in their exterior qualities as well as their interior aspects. While both the 2019 KIA Forte and the 2019 Hyundai Elantra have well-designed interiors and exteriors, the Forte offers more to delight in as standard equipment, evident in the table above. From Power Heated Exterior Mirrors that conveniently help you clear away ice, snow and fog to Satellite Radio and Cruise Control, the 2019 KIA Forte has you covered with features that, unlike with the 2019 Hyundai Elantra, you don’t have to pay extra in order to enjoy.
The 2019 KIA Forte pulls slightly ahead of the 2019 Hyundai Elantra when it comes to second row head room and cargo volume, which makes for a more comfortable ride for your passengers. Taking it a bit further, the Forte also offers alloy wheels and auto off headlights, which take away the worry of leaving your lights on and draining your battery's juice. The Elantra doesn't come standard with either of these. Plus, with the 2019 Forte, you will get fog lamps standard for those hazy mornings and anytime there is bad weather, helping to keep you safe on the road. The Elantra doesn't offer standard fog lamps, nor does it offer an available power sunroof on its base model for when the sun is shining.
