LEHIGHTON, Pa., Aug. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Sedan and hatchback cars manufactured by the Kia brand have been lauded by consumers and critics for their style, fuel economy, and overall usability. The compact 2017 Kia Forte and subcompact 2017 Kia Rio are popular choices for drivers because both models are available in sedan and hatchback formats. To help ensure that shoppers drive away happy, Lehighton Kia has built two new research pages that compare these vehicles in their sedan form and hatchback form. 

In the 2017 Kia Forte vs. 2017 Kia Rio sedan comparison, drivers will learn about the vehicles' engine options and their fuel economy. The compact 2017 Kia Forte can be outfitted with either an Atkinson cycle 2.0-liter four-cylinder or a conventional 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The Atkinson cycle engine is able to attain up to 29 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway. Models outfitted with the conventional four-cylinder engine can reach approximately 25 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. The subcompact 2017 Kia Rio is equipped with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers an estimated 27 mpg-city / 36 mpg-highway fuel economy. 

Drivers looking for a little more versatility will benefit from reading the 2017 Kia Forte5 vs. 2017 Kia Rio 5-Door hatchback comparison, which emphasizes how the size difference affects the vehicles' cargo space.
