2018 Kia Forte vs. 2018 Ford Focus

Flexible and Spacious

Jump inside the 2018 Kia Forte and the 2018 Ford Focus, and you’ll notice a major difference in passenger and cargo space. In fact, the Forte vs. Focus is actually a matchup between a midsize sedan and a compact, so you’ll instantly notice how much more space there is in the Forte. With 96.2 cubic feet of passenger volume, the Forte is much more comfortable, compared to the Focus’ 90.7 cubic feet. The Forte also boasts a trunk with over one and a half more cubic feet of space, plus flexible split-folding rear seats that let you accommodate bulky, odd-shaped loads easily. You can even opt for the Kia Smart Trunk, which lets you open the trunk while your hands are full, a feature not available on the Focus.

Clear Safety Advantages

While both these sedans come with a wealth of standard safety capabilities, like a full airbag system, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, and more, it’s the Forte that offers vital additional features. You can choose the optional Autonomous Emergency Braking System, which utilizes specialized sensors to alert you to impending collision situations and will even automatically apply the brakes full-force for you if you don’t respond in time. The Forte also earns high marks from the automotive industry for safety, with an IIHS 2017 “Top Pick Plus.” The Ford Focus was not able to attain a standard “Top Pick” for 2017 with its test results.

Reliability + Generous Warranty

Speaking of industry experts, the Kia Forte wins big kudos for reliability, too. J.D. Power rates the Forte much, much higher than the Focus. And not only is the Forte more reliable, it’s also covered by longer, more generous warranty protection. The Kia brand is renowned for long-lasting warranty protection, which adds up to a five-year/60,000 basic warranty that includes 24-hour roadside assistance and a ten-year/100,000 powertrain warranty. The Ford Focus has a basic warranty that covers you for three years or 36,000 miles and a powertrain warranty that lasts for five years or 60,000 miles. Between reliability and warranty confidence, it’s Kia all the way.
