Differences Between the 2018 Elantra GT vs 2017 Forte5

As you can see from the chart above, these two vehicles are pretty similar when it comes to engine power. That said, the standard option on the Elantra GT does have a bit more horsepower and torque, though it is slight. Despite the similarities between the two cars (Hyundai owns much of Kia), there are some areas where the Elantra GT stands out.

When it comes to the warranty, the Elantra GT does have a better/longer corrosion warranty than the Forte5. On top of that, a major difference is that the Elantra GT has way more cargo space. After all, you're buying a hatchback, so cargo space is important... and in this case, the Forte5 doesn't even come close.

There is certainly more we could talk about when comparing the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT vs the 2017 Kia Forte5, but why not experience the car for yourself here at Coastal Hyundai? To do so, get in touch with us. We look forward to meeting you.
