In the battle between compact sedans, the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta provides more of what Downers Grove shoppers look for in a commuter car than vehicles like the 2018 Kia Forte Sedan, including:

Explore these and other differences here and see why the Jetta consistently outperforms competitors like Kia, Hyundai, and Honda. It should be at the top of your list when you’re ready for an upgrade.


The Forte Sedan’s efficiency numbers don’t match the Jetta mpg. That’s important if you’re making the daily drive into Chicago. In fact, the 1.4T 4-cylinder powerplant in the Jetta S delivers as much as 28 mpg/city and 40 mpg/highway fuel economy in EPA testing. That’s far more than the Kia’s LX trim which offered just 25 mpg/city and 34 mpg/highway with a 6-speed manual transmission in recent EPA testing.

Jetta drivers also enjoy more interior capacity, offering access to 15.7 cubic feet of cargo space, compared to the Forte Sedan’s 14.9 cubic feet. Rear passengers have more room to stretch out in a Jetta as well, with 38.1 inches of legroom. The Kia offers just 35.9 inches of rear legroom, making the backseat a cramped space for normal-sized adults. On long road trips from La Grange, that allows for more room for passengers and luggage.
