2024 Hyundai Elantra vs 2024 Kia Forte

Serving Cartersville, GA

The 2024 Hyundai Elantra and the 2024 Kia Forte are strong picks for compact car shoppers. They have individualized style and solid reputations among drivers. Nonetheless, their significant differences could directly impact your final selection and require your full attention. How are these popular models unique?


The 2024 Elantra is available with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter, 147-horsepower engine. The powertrain comes with front-wheel drive and a continuously variable auto transmission. The N Line trim level is the only Elantra option offered with a 1.6-liter, turbo four-cylinder, 201-horsepower engine. This system includes front-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch auto transmission. Hybrid and high-performance Elantra versions are also available. The Forte offers two engine options with the same displacement and horsepower. The turbo four-cylinder engine is available with your choice of a manual or continuous variable transmission. However, the Kia Forte is not available with a hybrid powertrain or a high-performance engine.


The impressive Elantra has a sporty facade with an arched hood that descends sharply into the hood and roof. The pinwheel-style wheels are paired with slanted definition over the doors. At the front, the short, wide grille connects to the LED-accented headlights. Below these features, a wide bumper is accompanied by triangle-shaped air intakes. The 2024 Forte’s style includes a more upright stance with smoother sides and busy, spoke-style wheels. The grille is shorter than that of the Elantra, and it connects to angled headlights. In addition, the lower fascia is tall with heavily slanted sides.


The 2024 Kia Forte is available with lane departure mitigation, wireless smartphone connectivity, a touch display screen, forward collision warning, cloth seats, a blind-spot system, and a few additional features. The Elantra comes with these features, and it is also offered with synthetic leather upholstery, rear auto braking, a Bose audio system, a surround-view camera, a sunroof, a voice recognition system, wireless phone charging, and heated front seats.
