Just recently rented a kia rio and very impressed with the handling/ride for a small car.

I'm considering entering a lease agreement and wondering how the 2019 kia rio compares to the 2019 kia forte.

Also, with front wheel drive, do these vehicles handle well in winter/snow and ice?

Looking to hear of others experiences.

The Kia Forte is up level from the Rio. The Forte is better than the Rio in size, comfort, and performance. Kia just put a CVT (continuously variable transmission) in all models of the Forte so no info on long term reliability of the transmission. Base engine isn’t bad. Performance engine is better. I drove the Elantra with the same base engine as the Forte and it performed well for a base engine but that was with a traditional geared transmission.

Seems to me like both would make bad lease vehicles since they depreciate steeply, and with a lease that’s all you’re paying for.
