Oswego and Naperville drivers looking for value in a small sedan or hatchback will inevitable look at the 2016 Ford Focus, available now at River View Ford, and the 2016 Kia Forte. Both vehicles have a lot going for them, but the 2016 Ford Focus stands out above the Forte with its load of standard and optional features and its excellent interior design. Take a look at the facts, compare, and then decide for yourself.

Features Galore

The 2016 Ford Focus looks like a small package, but it offers a lot more features than you’d expect. A rear view camera comes standard on all Focus models, which allows Osergo and Naperville drivers more confidence and added safety when backing up and navigating out of tight spots. An optional smart key FOB with intelligent access allows convenient proximity entry and push-button start for the driver on the go. SYNC 3 technology gives you voice activated control of navigation and entertainment applications. A smart charging USB hub lets you keep your smartphone or laptop juiced while traveling. Syncing with the MyFord mobile app gives you updated information and diagnostics about your car directly to your phone or mobile device.

The 2016 Kia Forte also offers a backup camera for added assistance, but the Forte has been rated lower in front end crash tests, making it a less safe ride than the Ford Focus. The Forte also lacks a charging USB hub, which makes it less attractive to business commuters on the go. Lacking push-button start as well, the Kia Forte has less in the way of convenience than the 2016 Ford Focus.

A Focus on Interior

The 2016 Ford Focus continues a long tradition of Ford engineers offering top-of-the-line design with touches of sophistication in vehicle interiors. Dual-zone temperature control offers the driver and passengers a customizable and comfortable drive. The Focus RS model offers a racing feel while the ST model offers a luxurious leather wrapped steering wheel and heated seats. Next-generation SmartGauge with EcoGuide lets Oswego and Naperville drivers view standard performance information through the use of two configurable LCD displays, giving a practical application with a futuristic look. The technology doesn’t stop there. Ambient lighting lets the driver see the cupholders and console in darker environments and also allows the driver to choose from 7 colors to match their mood.

While the 2016 Kia Forte does offer the standard vehicle amenities, it lacks in style what the 2016 Ford Focus offers. Car shoppers looking for a racing feel or added luxury just aren’t going to find it in the Forte. Compared to Ford, Kia doesn’t offer the same emphasis on smart and stylish interior design or customizability.
