Choosing Your Kia Forte Koup
The Koup is powered by a 2-liter four-cylinder with 173 horsepower, matched to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. It's the only model in the Forte lineup that can get a manual with this engine. Things gets more interesting with the available 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder, which produces 201 horsepower and can be paired with either transmission.
All Koup models are well-equipped for their class, and the option packages add enough premium features to make the car seem downright luxurious.
The Koup is offered in two trim levels, each with its own engine:
As usual for Kia, there are no individual options beyond various dealer-installed accessories.
Both trim levels give you access to the many high-end features available on the Koup. Whether to go with the EX or SX is solely a matter of your power needs.
