2016 Honda Civic EX vs 2016 Kia Forte

This vehicle looks and performs every bit as well as you would expect a Civic to, and it comes with all of the gizmos and gadgets that you could ask for in a new vehicle. But does this new Civic put it at the top of the compact car category? We find out with our latest 2016 Honda Civic EX vs 2016 Kia Forte comparison.
With the 2016 Honda Civic, the designers wanted the focus of this vehicle to be performance. That is why it stepped away from the typical compact car look and gave it an edgier, speedier look. This is one of the most significant differences between the 2016 Civic and 2016 Forte.
