2019 Kia Forte Prematurely Obtains ‘King Of Compacts’ Title

By  | 

It is official. Kia has launched the new-generation Forte and it has received huge praises from major reviewers worldwide. Some outlets have even gone as far as calling the Forte as the new king in the compact scene – citing it to be better than the tenth-generation Honda Civic.

We personally find this a bit premature to rush into putting the throne on the Forte – especially when the car is considerably newer than the Civic. The Forte needs a fresh new competition for us to measure its worth and there is no better time to do that than in December this year.

In the pace of 3 months after the Forte made its debut, Mazda will launch the next-gen Mazda3 and this is the car that promises to sit on the compact throne for years to come.

Don’t get us wrong. We don’t hate the Forte at all and we find the car to be great. We are just disturbed by the glorified praises made on the car when it hasn’t been compared to a rival contender.
