2021 Hyundai Veloster vs. 2021 Kia Forte

The 2021 Hyundai Veloster is a compact car that will truly work for small families. This comes fitted with great engines, as well as a user-friendly interface. The N model is a good buy for those looking for upgrades at a low price.

For the 2021 Kia Forte, it promises a long list of standard features. There is also a roomy cargo and passenger area inside it. While there are some things to look forward to, there is no major change for the ride when compared to the 2020 version.

Design & Style

The 2021 Hyundai Veloster is one of the most handsome cars you will ever see. Despite its size, there is plenty of cargo space inside. In fact, when all seats are in use, that area measures about 20 cubic feet. It becomes larger at 44.5 cubic feet when the second row is folded. The vehicle seats up to four people, all seating comfortably with its headroom and legroom configuration. There are bright-colored trim pieces that seem to highlight some of its cabin accessories, thus making it modern.

The 2021 Forte boasts of a roomy cargo space, but it is disappointing to note that this area only fits up to 15.3 cubic feet of your suitcases or groceries. Seating up to five people in both rows, you will find the area comfortable with its bolstering. There are plenty of quality materials in the cabin, but the Veloster is more high-end in this department.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Hyundai Veloster presents the most remarkable infotainment system for its class. This one is easy to comprehend with, and due to the presence of physical buttons and knobs on the center stack, it is easier to enjoy all other functions. Among the list of technologies that you can access via this interface are Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth. For your safety, you can count on lane departure warning, driver attention monitoring, lane keep assist, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and rearview camera.

The 2021 Kia Forte, on the other hand, uses an eight-inch touch screen which is a standard inclusion to its infotainment system. It has four speakers, USB port, Bluetooth, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. Safety features standard to the car are rearview camera, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, driver attention monitoring, and forward collision warning.


The 2021 Hyundai Veloster gives you three engine options. The base trim carries the inline-four under its hood, enough to power 147 horses. The next one is the turbo version which yields results of up to 201 horsepower. Lastly, there is another engine version that produces up to 275 horsepower of output.

The 2021 Forte, meanwhile, basically has a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine that can reach up to 147 horsepower. There is a version that results in 201 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Hyundai Veloster defeats the 2021 Kia Forte in all aspect. Will you still doubt buying this ride for your family?
