The Honda Civic is a vehicle that is closely associated with cost, dependability, and usefulness.

But the market continues to move forward, and the 2022 Honda Civic faces competition.

 The Honda can be replaced by the Kia Forte in 2022. Which automobile should you buy, though?

Both the top and bottom trim versions of the Kia Forte are less expensive than the Honda Civic.

For instance, the manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) for the Forte in its base FE trim is $20,185.

However, the MSRP for a standard Honda Civic LX is around $23,645.

Still, the Honda Civic will cost more if you desire a sportier grade on either vehicle.

The Kia Forte GT's closest rival is the 2022 Honda Civic Si, which is around $4,000 more expensive.

Regarding the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) fuel efficiency ratings, the vehicles are extremely equally matched. 

 The Honda Civic's most economical version offers a decent 33 city mpg and 42 highway mpg for a combined economy

 As a consequence, the Civic EX narrowly defeats the base FE Forte trim, which is the most affordable. 

The FE achieves 31 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the interstate for a total of 35 mpg.
