The chart begins to make a comparison that shows the 2018 Kia Forte on the winning team.

There are more features where that came from, so stick with us as we tackle entertainment systems and interior space.

Of course, all modern vehicles come with a speaker system of sorts, and indeed both the 2018 Kia Forte and the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze have 4 speaker sound systems, but the Forte has SiriusXM ® radio as a standard feature on the base model, while the Cruze does not. SiriusXM ® radio has over 130 channels and 69 channels that are commercial free.

As far as interior space goes, the 2018 Kia Forte beats the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze with more front head room, front leg room, and more rear hip room. While they are similar in size, the extra space will be appreciated by driver and passengers alike.
