The Kia Forte Koup is an all-new model for 2010. Although the Koup is slightly shorter, lower, and narrower than the Forte sedan, it carried over many of the same styling cues and shares much mechanically with the 4-door.
Attractive design inside and out; good ride and handling; respectable fuel-efficiency; standard tech-savvy features
The Forte Koup is one of the best-looking affordable small coupes inside and out, with a design that doesn't look merely like a sedan derivative. It's more powerful than base versions of the Honda Civic coupe, Ford Focus coupe, or Chevrolet Cobalt coupe according to Kia, and it has more interior volume than the Civic coupe, Cobalt coupe or Scion tC. Fuel economy is another good reason to consider the Forte Koup, along with its very strong list of standard features--especially for those who appreciate tech extras. For its price, well under $20,000 even when you add a few options, the Forte Koup is hard to beat.
