2020 Volkswagen Jetta vs 2020 Kia Forte


The long and successful history of Volkswagen reflects itself in the 2020 Jetta line. A form that’s true to the Volkswagen name, performance that leaves the competition far behind, and a fun driving experience complete the story for this model year.

When compared to the Kia Forte, the Jetta is longer. This translates to several interior benefits, including more rear legroom that will make your passengers feel more comfortable. The shape of the Jetta reflects the character and design elements that make Volkswagens unmistakable, so everyone will instantly recognize your discerning taste in vehicles. The Jetta also includes alloy wheels as standard equipment across all models, something the Forte can’t match.

The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta exudes performance in a compact package

The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta has one high-torque engine that delivers performance to most models. The turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder engine produces 147 horsepower and an impressive 184 lb-ft of torque at just 1,500 rpm. The Kia Forte only delivers 132 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm with most of their models, and that’s a difference of over 50 lb-ft!

The Volkswagen Jetta ensures you have great acceleration to navigate traffic and find your place on the highway. The Jetta GLI trim includes an engine that upgrades to 228 horsepower, considerably more than the Forte’s top engine rated at 201 horsepower.

The Jetta beats the Forte on fuel efficiency when equipped with a manual 6-speed transmission, saving you money at the pump. These models achieve a rating of 7.9/5.9 L per 100 KM (city/highway). When equipped with an 8-speed automatic, the Jetta still edges out Forte models equipped with a variable transmission.
