Over the years we have seen the sedan market grow and shrink. For years, this vehicle was the number one vehicle choice for American drivers. Although that has changed, there are still many beloved sedans that remain in the market. Despite there being fewer sedan options, the competition is still strong and only the best models have survived. Two sedans that have continued to remain popular are the 2021 Kia Forte and the 2021 Hyundai Elantra.
The 2021 Kia Forte is available in six trim levels: FE, LXS, GT-Line, EX, GT, and GT Manual. The 2021 Hyundai Elantra is available in four trim levels: SE, SEL, N Line, and Limited. Although both models offer several trim options, we will be focusing on their base models. If you are curious to see how these two compact sedans stack up, keep reading for our 2021 Kia Forte vs 2021 Hyundai Elantra comparison.
