Protégé : 2018 Kia Forte vs 2018 Toyota Corolla on Montreal’s South Shore

The popularity of compact sedans in Quebec is undeniable. All we have to do is look around while stuck in rush hour traffic on Montreal’s South Shore. Here is a brief comparison of the 2018 Kia Forte and the 2018 Toyota Corolla that you can see at Candiac Toyota, near Brossard and Saint-Constant.

Assembled in Pesqueria, Mexico, the 2018 Forte LX BA is equipped with a multipoint injection 2.0 L 16-valve I-4 with Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) engine and a 6-speed automatic Sportmatic transmission. The 2018 Kia Forte is in its second generation while the Toyota Corolla is in its 11th.

While in general, the 2018 Kia Forte offers impressive performance, there is still some doubt about its reliability compared to the Toyota Corolla. It also presents fewer standard safety features than the 2018 Toyota Corolla. In fact the Car Guide gives the new Corolla a 10/10 for reliability compared to 8/10 for the new Kia Forte.

The 2018 Toyota Corolla that you can discover at Candiac Toyota, the Toyota dealership on Montreal’s South Shore, near Brossard and Saint-Constant, is assembled in Cambridge, Ontario. There have been nearly 4 000 000 Corolla built at this plant since it opened. The Toyota Total Quality Management program ensures that each 2018 Corolla undergoes a total of 500 inspections during assembly Attention to detail is pushed as far as installing pedals that were designed for men’s size 10 1/2 North American shoes and winter boots. We owe this thoroughness to a Canadian engineer from Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada (TMMC) who participated in the year-long design process in Japan.

The 2018 Corolla CE presented by Candiac Toyota, near Brossard and Saint-Constant is equipped with a 1.8 litre engine, with 4 cylinder, dual overhead cams, 16 valves, dual Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence and a continuously variable transmission with intelligent speed control (CVTi-S).

Toyota puts safety first. The 2018 Corolla, like all Toyota vehicles, is equipped with the standard Toyota Safety Sense package that includes the pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, dynamic radar cruise control and lane departure warning with steering assist.

At Toyota, a focus on safety doesn’t mean cutting corners. In fact, the XLE model of the 2018 Corolla includes heated steering wheel, heated front seats, 8-way adjustable driver’s seat, auto-dimming rear-view mirror with HomeLink and a compass as well as a 4.2-inch multifunction screen and the audio system with 6-inch screen with navigation and Sirius XM satellite radio.

On Montreal’s South Shore, not only does Candiac Toyota, the Toyota dealer located near Candiac and Saint-Constant provide you with the entire line of 2018 Toyota Corolla, but they also offer their customers Toyota promotions and Toyota financing.
