2017 Kia Forte LX and the 2017 Honda Civic LX Face Off

  • Forte's base price weighs in at an affordable $16,600, excelling against Honda's $18,740. Compared with the price of a comparably equipped Forte at $17,495, Honda requires an even higher initial investment of $19,615. That means more access to myriad features in 2017 Kia Forte, and for less.

  • Looking for a more stable ride? 2017 Forte LX takes the edge on Civic. Kia Forte showcases 61.5-inch front and 62-inch rear track widths to surmount those of Honda, at 60.9 inches and 61.5 inches respectively.
  • Both Forte and Civic in LX trim offer comparable interiors, but when it comes to accommodating extra riders comfortably for the duration, 2017 Forte revs into the lead, providing a sprawling 53.1 inches of rear hip room to Honda's 47.3 inches.
  • Kia's 60-month/60,000-mile basic and 120-month/100,000-mile powertrain warranties are the better of the two offerings when compared to Honda's 36-month/36,000-mile basic and 60-month/60,000-mile powertrain warranties. That's coverage to go more than the extra mile.
