2013 Kia Forte Koup Overview
While it shares the Forte's interior and mechanicals, the Koup is lower and more aggressive, while still delivering the efficiency of something in the compact class. It's also loaded with standard features and backed by Kia's long 10-year powertrain warranty. For people who want something attractive but inexpensive to run, the Forte Koup could be just the thing.
The Forte Koup comes in EX and SX trim levels. The EX gets a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 156 horsepower and either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. Also included are features like 16-inch alloy wheels, power windows, mirrors and locks with remote keyless entry, cruise control, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth and a six-speaker audio system with satellite radio, USB input and iPod interface. The faster SX gets a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 173 horsepower and either a six-speed manual or automatic. It also gets more equipment in the form of automatic headlamps and front fog lights. The SX benefits from performance upgrades like 17-inch alloy wheels and a lowered sports suspension. Features like leather upholstery, keyless entry and start and satellite navigation are optional.
The Honda Civic coupe is more efficient and comes with a promise of good reliability, but the interior is cheap and some features are hard to get unless you buy a top trim level. The Hyundai Elantra Coupe has better fuel economy, stylish looks and is well priced, but the engine can be weak. The Volkswagen Golf offers hatchback versatility and a well-finished interior, but features like a sunroof or Bluetooth quickly add to the price and it's not as attractive as the Kia. The Mini Cooper is efficient and fun to drive with great fuel economy, but offers less space than the Kia and gets very expensive.
So while it may not be the most premium competitor out there, the Forte Koup comes with lots of standard features and an aggressive style that makes its low price more surprising. It's also something that is backed by a long warranty and comes with decent fuel economy that should make it affordable for the young audience it's targeting. For something inexpensive with good looks, the Forte Koup merits consideration.
