4. 2013 Kia Forte, 14.9
Topping its corporate sibling by the film of bugs on its grille is the Kia Forte. It beats the Hyundai Elantra by just one tenth of a cubic foot in trunk space. Don’t blame us; someone had to be the smarter sibling.
The two cars ride on an identical 106.3-inch wheelbase but the Kia as a slightly larger interior and a couple extra inches of back-seat legroom. Perhaps styling has something to do with the Forte’s slight advantages. Like parents always say to screaming toddlers, “life isn’t fair;” in this comparison Kia gets the nod over Hyundai.
