Today’s market features a talented lineup of compact sedans. Here at Owens Murphy Volkswagen in Little Rock, we would like to help make your buying experience a breeze by comparing the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta and the 2016 Kia Forte.


Fuel Efficiency

Saving money at the pump is a major component when buying a vehicle. The Volkswagen Jetta edges out the Kia Forte in this category offering a penny saving 28/40-MPG city/highway. All while the Kia Forte gets 26/39-MPG city/highway.


Drivetrain and Performance

When it’s time to apply your foot to the gas pedal and get moving down the highway, horsepower and torque is what you’ll be looking for if you want power and speed! Again, the Volkswagen Jetta comes out on top with its 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine producing a horsepower of 210 and torque of 207 lb-ft. That’s impressive compared to the Kia Forte’s 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, which outputs only 154 lb-ft of torque and a horsepower of 173.


Comfort and Utility

Committing to buying a new vehicle is very similar to the commitment you must make when buying a home because you spend a lot of time in each space. In the case of comfort and utility, the Volkswagen Jetta provides a lot more back seat head and legroom. It also has more room for cargo, which really comes in handy for a holiday or vacation trip with the family.

 The Volkswagen Jetta proves to be able to stand up to any compact sedan in its class. With its superior fuel efficiency, drivetrain, performance, comfort and utility the Volkswagen Jetta is the better choice over the Kia Forte.
