2016 Kia Forte Koup
Introduced in 2009, the Kia Forte Koup is a sharp, stylish, two-door alternative to the many sedans in the compact car segment. With playful lines, efficient engines, and value-minded features, the Forte Koup is a great choice for the driver looking for something a little different. The 2016 Kia Forte Koup is available in two trims: EX and SX.
Character, Through and Through
Low-slung and sporty, the 2016 Kia Forte Koup Review exemplifies Kia’s fun and funky attitude. The “tiger nose” grille has been thinned, while the lower grille has grown, to increase sport attributes in performance plus make for a more aggressive appearance. In the rear, a carbon-fibre patterned bumper bar and rear diffuser panel add to the sporty look. They are highlighted by dual stainless-steel exhaust tips. 17-inch and 18-inch machine-finished alloy wheels also add some shine and individuality. Available Xenon high-intensity discharge headlights make it easier to see, and be seen, while standard power heated side mirrors are an asset in the wintertime. Standard solar glass cuts down on the harmful UV rays making it into the cabin, although if you want more light, you can opt for the power sunroof.
Thanks to the coupe body style, the passenger cabin has great measurements and space for five in the cloth-upholstered cabin, with leather upholstery available. There is ample head and legroom in the rear seats, and plenty of hip room throughout. Cargo space in the 2016 Kia Forte Koup continues the theme, with the amount of room being comparable to some mid-sized sedans. Dual-zone automatic climate control is available to keep everyone comfortable both in the summer and winter, while standard heated front seats and available air-cooled driver’s seat increase the comfort level. The standard 6-speaker stereo is tied into the powerful UVO infotainment system, and has auxiliary and USB inputs so you can bring a variety of media along. Voice-activated Bluetooth wireless technology lets you control some features of the system without having to take your attention off of the road. Wheel-mounted controls for the audio and cruise controls also help you to keep your hands on the wheel for full control.
A pair of efficient engines are available in the 2016 Kia Forte Koup Review, with a six-speed manual being the standard transmission. The 6-speed Sportmatic automatic with Active-ECO is available with either engine. More options give you more control while providing the power and handling you want.
