2013 Honda Civic vs the Kia Forte

2013 Honda Civic CoupeThe new
 2013 Honda Civic Coupe is now available at Middletown Honda. For 2013, the Civic Coupe features a refined exterior design, along with a number of powertrain options and some fantastic features. That said, there is some competition, and drivers in the market for a new compact car may also be considering the 2013 Kia Forte Koup.

We think that the Civic Coupe comes out clearly on top. Here are just a few reasons why the 2013 Civic Coupe LX (with a manual transmission) is a smart choice when compared to the 2013 Kia Forte Koup EX (with a manual transmission).

Powertrain and Fuel Economy

The 2013 Civic Coupe LX comes equipped with a 1.8L four-cylinder engine. It can save you plenty of money at the pump, too, as it’s capable of 28 mpg city and 36 mpg highway (manual transmission models).* The 2013 Kia Forte Koup is powered by a 2.0L four-cylinder engine, but can’t compete with the fuel economy of the Honda model, as it achieves an estimated 24 mpg city and 33 mpg highway. It’s clear which model will save you money at the pump.

Features and Options

Both models come standard with manual air conditioning, power accessories, cruise control, and a CD/MP3 player. The Civic Coupe comes out on top, though, as its standard features also include a rearview camera, a rear electronic parking aid, and a stereo anti-theft system.

Both models come equipped with keyless entry, tinted glass and automatic headlights. The 2013 Civic Coupe also features a vehicle theft deterrent system, which the Kia does not.
