LEARN ABOUT THE 2020 HYUNDAI ELANTRA

Practical, Smooth, and a Touch Sporty

There’s no denying the 2020 Hyundai Elantra brings good looks to any road it hits. Full LED headlights look ultra-sleek while saving energy. Meanwhile, the front cascading grille exudes power. Opt for the 2020 Hyundai Elantra Limited, and you’ll even get chrome accents to demand attention everywhere you drive.

Speaking of the drive, it’s a fun ride every time you step behind the wheel with responsive motors and plenty of fun and refinement inside.

With that said, how does this cool sedan stack up against the Kia Forte? After all, both cars pack a sharp design, so the real question is what they both bring to your drives. So, here’s a look at the Hyundai Elantra vs the Kia Forte.

When you’re ready to try out the 2020 Hyundai Elantra, stop by Brandon Hyundai in Tampa and test drive this suave car today.

Nimble Rides with Sporty Spirit

Take a ride in the 2020 Hyundai Elantra, and you’ll have your style of drive tailored to you with three different engines.

Your base motor is a 2.0L 4-cylinder packing 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft torque for a responsive ride. You’ll also have a Smartstream Intelligent Variable Transmission, which automatically shifts through gears with the precision needed to enjoy an exhilarating drive.

When you ride in the Eco—friendly Eco model a 1.4L Turbo Inline 4-cylinder packs 128 horsepower and 156 lb-ft torque starting at 1400 RPM for power you’ll feel on Tampa streets and highways alike. You’ll also have Idle stop & go to maximize your fuel economy, which reaches EPA-estimated 41 highway mpg.

When you’re craving more power, the available 1.6L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder delivers the sportiness you crave with 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft torque starting at 1500 RPM. Tap that gas pedal and enjoy instant acceleration and swift drives anywhere you travel. For full responsiveness, a 7-Speed EcoShift® dual clutch transmission switches through your gears at the perfect moments so that your drives always feel smooth and fun.

By comparison, when you take a ride in the 2020 Kia Forte, your base motor is the same 2.0L 4-cylinder with 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft torque. The only difference is that a 6-speed manual transmission comes standard.

For more power, you can also opt for the available 1.6L turbo inline 4-cylinder motor with 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft torque.

This one’s a tough call with such similar engines. But keep in mind the 2020 Hyundai Elantra packs an extra engine and an automatic transmission standard on the base engine. So for those reasons, we’ll give the win to the Elantra.

Fun and Comfort Meet Inside

Step inside the 2020 Hyundai Elantra, and you’ll find a refined interior for all your drives. Standard premium cloth brings comfort, while available leather-trimmed seats with available heated functions create a cozy and luxurious interior.

Stay connected while on the phone with an available 8-inch touch display with available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto. Load up your favorite playlists and enjoy the crisp audio on six standard speakers. You can also upgrade to the available Infinity® Premium Audio with HD Radio technology with eight speakers and a subwoofer.

Inside, it’s always a comfortable and spacious drive. The front seats alone offer 40.3 inches of headroom for a relaxing ride anywhere.

Hop inside the 2020 Kia Forte, and you’ll find similar amenities with standard cloth and available leather-trimmed seats. In the front, you’ll also have 38.8 inches of headroom for your drives. You’ll also get an available 8-inch touchscreen and four standard speakers to enjoy your audio.

It’s another super close round. But with two extra speakers for enjoying your music and nearly two extra inches of headroom to move around, the 2020 Hyundai Elantra takes the win.

Standard Safety for All Your Swift Drives

When you cruise in the 2020 Hyundai Elantra, every drive is filled with standard driver-assists guiding you safely down any road and highway. With the Driver’s Blind Spot Mirror, you’ll see extra coverage of your ride to know when it’s safe to merge.

To help you avoid fender benders, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) detects and monitors cars ahead of you and warns you when a collision is likely and hits the brakes for you when necessary. It’s perfect for those times you look if it’s safe to merge and can’t see traffic ahead, or when drivers get unpredictable.

For sticking to your Lane, Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) sends you alerts and gentle corrective steering when you veer out of your lane without a signal. It’s the help you need to avoid side-collisions. To help you stay focused, Driver Attention Warning (DAW) sends you audio and visual warnings when you show signs of drowsiness and distraction. It gives you a chance to know when it’s a good time to find a place to pull over and rest or refresh.

When you ride with the 2020 Kia Forte, it’s also built for safety with standard Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Lane Keeping Assist.

For this one, it’s almost a tie; but to help you with your choice, remember that the 2020 Hyundai Elantra won a Long-Term Ownership Value Award from KBB.
