Kia Forte 5 VS Popular Compact HatchbacksJan 22nd, 2020
Kia Forte5 vs Toyota Corolla Hatchback vs Mazda 3 Sport vs Honda Civic Hatchback
It’s not hard to see why so many people are loyal to hatchbacks. They’re well priced, efficient, easy to drive, and offer the flexibility of a multi-use cargo/seating area. Perfect for the commute to work, running errands on weekends, or for zipping away for a holiday, compact hatchbacks have always been best-sellers even when trends change. In a world dominated by much larger SUVs and trucks, the compact car has bucked the larger-vehicle trend, remaining a steadfast best-seller.
There are several awarded, always popular, import brands that have dominated this segment in Canada. The Toyota Corolla Hatchback, the Honda Civic Hatchback, and the Mazda 3 Sport. But there’s a fourth automotive brand that has been quietly dominating the category, garnering accolades and winning awards. It’s Kia, and their multi-award-winning Forte5.
Here’s a brief history of compact cars in Canada.
Kia also dominates when it comes to warranty, boasting a best-in-class warranty that is lightyears – and calendar years – ahead of the competition. It features a Basic 5-Year or 100,000 km, a Drivetrain 5-Year or 100,000 km, a Corrosion 5-Year/Unlimited km, and a Roadside Assistance 5-Year/Unlimited km.
