Future owners of the 2020 Kia Forte will never be at a shortage of powertrain options. The manufacturer employs a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter, inline four-cylinder engine that can be attached to a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission. Both gear-changers would be able to produce 147 horsepower. The entry-level engine for the 2020 Toyota Corolla is a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine mated to a CVT of its own. It will make 139 horsepower. Buyers of both sedans can choose more powerful engine options. The 2020 Forte can also be equipped with a turbocharged, 1.6-liter, inline four-cylinder engine that shares the six-speed manual or can also use a seven-speed automatic. It will make 201 horsepower. Corolla owners can also pick models with a 169-horsepower, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine.

Connectivity Technology

The ability to connect a compatible smartphone into a vehicle’s infotainment system has never been more important than it is to modern car-buyers. Both the 2020 Kia Forte and 2020 Toyota Corolla can connect drivers and passengers to the Apple CarPlay® suite of applications. However, this is where the Toyota’s smartphone-integration capability ends. Owners of the 2020 Forte will also be able to use the Android Auto™ suite which expands the Kia infotainment system’s native capabilities. Kia has also made wireless smartphone charging available on upper trims of the 2020 Forte. Corolla buyers will have to choose a premium accessory package to get this same convenient feature.
