2014 Kia Forte Koup
- Estimated MSRP: From $16,700 (Car and Driver)
Kia has a redesigned version of its performance-minded Forte Koup coming out late this year. The European-inspired car features a sporty, two-door profile with swooping roofline and available 18-inch wheels.
The 2014 Forte Koup offers two engine options: a 2-liter, 173-horsepower four-cylinder engine in its EX model or a 1.6-liter, 201-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine on its SX model. The vehicle continues its sporty performance design with soft-touch surfaces, chrome accents, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and carbon fiber-like textures on the dashboard.
Standard features include a rearview camera, Bluetooth wireless capability, satellite radio, steering wheel-mounted audio and cruise control buttons, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, power windows and light-emitting-diode positioning headlights with fog lights. Class-exclusive available features include heated front seats, an air-cooled driver's seat and driver-selectable electric steering.
