Comparing the 2020 MAZDA3 to the 2020 Kia Forte 

Is it time to put a bit of excitement into your daily drive? If so, we want you to know that our full lineup of Mazda cars includes a great variety of vehicles built for adventure and daily driving. The 2020 Mazda3 is an excellent choice for anyone who loves to have style, technology, and performance rolled into one stunning package.

When you come to see us at Lester Glenn Mazda to test drive a few models, we'll be happy to go over all the details of the 2020 Mazda3 and how it compares to the competition. In the meantime, our staff has put together some details for you to ponder. 

2020 MAZDA3 

From all-wheel-drive capability to a range of available packages, you can easily tailor your driving experience with the 2020 Mazda3. Under the hood, you have a four-cylinder 2.5-liter Skyactiv®-G engine that puts out 186 horsepower along with 186 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes with a Skyactiv®-Drive six-speed sport electronically-controlled automatic transmission. Safety technology in this new Mazda car includes lane-keep assist, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, and radar cruise control. As far as special features go, you will have USB ports, HD Radio, Bluetooth® connectivity, and keyless entry and start. When you're visiting our Mazda dealers near Lacey, we can discuss all of your available options. 


2020 Kia Forte 

The 2020 Kia Forte may have premium looks, but the base level is very underwhelming and the entry level inline-four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine is severely lacking. You have 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque to work with, along with a six-speed manual transmission. Unfortunately, it is unrefined and sluggish when it comes to acceleration. Safety technology includes automatic emergency braking and lane-departure warning, but you will need to go up in trim levels for parking sensors and blind-spot monitors. Special features include smartphone integration and USB ports, but you will need to look at expensive options if you need things like keyless ignition or heated and cooled front seats.
