If you want a compact car with a spacious cabin, strong value, and a smooth comfortable ride than you can enjoy day after day, head to Thousand Oaks Toyota in Thousand Oaks and check out the 2016 Toyota Corolla. This stylish sedan has been one of the constant entries on the Toyota Best Seller list for decades, and when you see how reliable and capable this little car is, you will wonder why you didn't buy one sooner. Come to Thousand Oaks Toyota, serving Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, San Fernando Valley, Oxnard, and Ventura, CA, and find a Corolla for your garage.
The 2016 Toyota Corolla is a great car, and rivals like the Kia Forte just haven't been around long enough to be able to compete with it.
If you want your next car to have a little pep in its step, the 2016 Toyota Corolla should be your choice over the Kia Forte. Both of these sedans come with a standard 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder engine and they make very similar horsepower, 128 in the Corolla and 130 in the Forte. And while it looks like the Kia might have the upper hand in the horsepower battle, the Corolla actually reaches its peak of power sooner, at 4400 RPM versus the Forte's peak at 4700 RPM. The Corolla also reaches its peak torque sooner than the Forte does, 6000 RPM for the Corolla and 6500 for the Forte. That means that the Corolla will respond faster to driver input than the Forte, which will help when it comes to off-the-line starts, passing, or merging. Get more out of driving in the 2016 Corolla and leave the Kia Forte on the showroom floor.
Even if you are driving a small car, that doesn't mean you are OK with a small interior. The 2016 Toyota Corolla is spacious and comfortable despite its small stature, and it offers much more interior space for passengers than the Kia Forte. In the rear seats, the Corolla provides 41.4 inches of leg room (versus just 35.9 inches in the Forte) and that will make all the difference when it is time for the long haul road trip. The Toyota Corolla has a whole cubic foot more passenger volume than the Kia Forte, and it uses that space wisely in order to keep drivers and passengers happy on the road. The Corolla is also smaller on the outside than the Forte; it's more narrow, which will make navigating tight parking lots and cramped city streets even easier and less stressful. The 2016 Toyota Corolla is our pick, here!
We have already seen that the Toyota Corolla has better driving dynamics than the Kia Forte, but what about fuel economy? These two sedans have very similar engines, but the Toyota Corolla is better where it counts. Most people use their cars primarily for commuting to work, school, and on errands around town. And if that sounds like your daily driving needs, then you will be better off in the 2016 Corolla, which earns 28 miles per gallon on city streets while the Kia Forte can only muster 25 miles per gallon in the city. Combined city/highway fuel economy is also better in the Toyota Corolla; you can earn up to 31 miles per gallon instead of the 30 miles per gallon offered up by the Kia Forte. Save your hard earned money for something other than the gas station and pick the 2016 Toyota Corolla.
If you want a safe car, you will be much better off with the 2016 Toyota Corolla. The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) scored both the Corolla and the Kia Forte and found that the Corolla is much more crashworthy than its Kia competitor. In the overall rating, both cars earned five stars, but in the break-down of various crash tests, the Corolla beat out the Forte time and again. In the Overall frontal barrier crash test, the Toyota Corolla earned five stars while the Kia Forte only earned four. The case is the same with the Frontal barrier driver-side crash test, and the frontal barrier passenger-side test. The Corolla comes with a bunch of great safety features that will keep you feeling safe and confident on the road while you enjoy this capable sedan during your daily drives.
