2016 Kia Forte vs 2016 Nissan Sentra

2016 Kia Forte Side View

Having trouble finding a vehicle that is both efficient and sporty? Fun to drive, but also offers plenty of great technology? One that offers all of the options that you are looking for? Then the compact car category would be a great place to start looking. Here at Carolina Kia, we have an outstanding vehicle in the Kia Forte. It has putting a smile on driver’s faces for years, but has run into some stiff competition along the way. We take a look at how it stacks up against a newly revamped vehicle with the 2016 Kia Forte vs 2016 Nissan Sentra comparison.

As we said, the 2016 Nissan Sentra just underwent a huge makeover, but as you can see in the table, it still trails the 2016 Kia Forte in performance, fuel efficiency and interior space. Guess a makeover can’t fix everything? The Forte also offers substantial head and legroom for its passengers and has great comfort options such as leather seating, heated seats, and a 10-way power adjustable driver’s seat.

Exciting Technology Everywhere You Look in the 2016 Forte

One area that we think really separates the 2016 Kia Forte from the 2016 Nissan Sentra is all of the great technology that drivers will find in the Forte. This vehicle comes packed with fun features that will make your drive easier and more enjoyable than it would otherwise be in the Sentra. We already saw a few of the comfort features above, but in addition to these the vehicle also has a dual-zone climate control system and a push-button start with Smart Key available.

As for entertainment technology, the 2016 Kia Forte has the UVO eServices infotainment system available to stream music, make phone calls, send messages, and much more. A voice-command navigation system is also optional to help you get from point A to point B as quickly as possible.
