The Kia Forte Koup is an aggressively styled small coupe. The Koup has two doors, seating for five and a traditional trunk rather than a hatchback. In size, the Kia is very close to the Honda Civic coupe. Koup is available in two trim levels: EX and SX. The EX is powered by a 2.0l four cylinder engine rated at 156-bhp. The EX model includes alloy wheels and disc brakes. The SX model equips a more powerful turbocharged 1.6l four cylinder engine rated at 201-bhp and more aggressive wheels and tires. The primary competition for the Forte Koup is the Scion TC and Honda Civic coupe. The Kia enjoys a price advantage over both models. The Forte Koup is a viable alternative in the small car segment.
