When it comes to standard features, the 2017 Kia Forte surpasses the 2017 Hyundai Elantra due to the fact that Hyundai makes you purchase an extra package to get today's popular equipment. The Forte is built with most of these features already equipped, such as Sirius XM radio, Bluetooth wireless technology and hands-free connectivity, steering-wheel-mounted audio with hands-free phone buttons, and a rearview backup camera.

While the two models are comparable when it comes to safety, the 2017 Kia Forte covers all safety bases with passive features like dual front airbags and side-impact door beams to active safety features like vehicle stability management and anti-lock braking system. It also comes standard with driver assist features like a Brake Assist System that detects emergency braking situations and applies additional braking force, or a Tire-Pressure Monitoring System that monitors tire inflation pressure.
