[cc] 2010 Mazda 3i × 2010 Kia Forte SX Review - Lake Houston, United States
Adam Barrera at highmileage.org evaluates the Mazda 3i and Kia Forte SX compact sedans, pits them head-to-head, and places them in the context of their competition. Let me know what you think -- start a conversation with me on Twitter. http://twitter.com/highmileage
The first Mazda3 was a Great Little Car! It would've been the best among its peers...
if it hadn't trailed the Ford Focus by 8 miles per gallon.
Time has passed, and the 3 has evolved... but it faces new competition.
The Kia Forte is the first Korean compact car engineered to be at the top of shoppers' lists...
instead of a second-tier alternative.
Tedious automotive clichés mean that some compact car buyers will bypass
these cars altogether on their way to Honda and Toyota showrooms.
What a bummer.
The Forte feels as solidly built as any Civic or Corolla,
and it's backed by a longer warranty.
Inside the Forte, there are no positive or negative surprises
just a well-crafted and inoffensively designed interior
with slightly more passenger room and cargo volume than its main competition.
The new Mazda3's interior lies on the same plane.
The last-generation 3's deep, dramatic gauge lighting is gone.
Also gone is the eye-catching contrast-check upholstery that used to set this car apart in the segment.
In the New 3, drivers sit in a vast expanse of unaccented cloth.
Thankfully, the head unit's reactive LEDs have been retained.
They're the only design element that saves the 3's interior from monotony.
On the road, both vehicles bring memories of a better time
when '90s compacts were light and fun to toss.
Kia has never built a vehicle as dialed in as the Forte.
Its above-average reflexes seem held back only by its tires.
But where the Kia surprises, the Mazda thrills.
At Mazda, Zoom-Zoom isn't a marketing slogan
it's an engineering guideline.
Not a single bushing drowns out the base 3's connection to the road.
The 3 is still *so* fun to drive,
but its interior has become marginalized and severe.
Without an interior edge, the only parameter that makes the Mazda3
more desirable than the Kia Forte is the way that it drives.
If Kia sharpened the Forte's steering and suspension, Mazda could have a problem.
But for now, the Mazda delivers a complete package:
competitive fuel economy, declarative sheetmetal, and soulful road feel.
Both cars are more engaging than the Toyota Corolla
and more rationally priced than the Honda Civic.

2010 KIA Forte SX review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Give us 3-minutes and we'll give you the scoop,
In the past some Korean car manufactures have blatantly copied much more
expensive competitors like the Mercedes Benz or Jaguar, but the Forte only
takes the better design cues from the Civic and builds on them with a
unique, original, and dare I say a sexy spin on the standard Civic.

basically the top-of-the-range in the model family, which includes some
pretty luxurious features and the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.
The 2014 Kia Forte EX appears longer, lower and wider, while at the same
time having features available like heated and cooled driver seat, heated
steering wheel and a cooled glove box! Moreover, the 2.0-liter engine is
peppy and fun to drive even when mated to the 6-speed automatic
transmission. Could this redesigned Forte give the Toyota Corolla and Honda
Civic a run for their money? Join us and see what you think.

2014 KIA Forte Sedan vs Chevy Cruze Diesel 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 KIA Forte and the Chevy Cruze are direct
competitors in the new car market place...or are they. In another fun and
informative TFLcar Mashup Review we compare these two sedans to see which
one is the better ride. But while these two cars compete for the same buyer
not all Chevy Cruzes are created equal. In fact this Cruze has a surprise
under the hood....a very fuel efficient and very torquey turbo-charged diesel engine. With this in
mind....do you think that the KIA Forte or the Chevy Cruze is the fastest
in a straight line to 60 MPH at a mile above sea level? You'll have to
watch this unique TFLcar Mashup to find out.
