Kia Motors America Unveils All-New Turbocharged Forte Koup At 2013 New York Auto Show

Both EX and SX trim levels offer optional HID headlights, navigation system with HD Radioâ„¢ 4, sunroof, heated steering wheel, 10-way adjustable power driver's seat, heated front seats and cooled driver's seat, leather seating surfaces, SmartKey with push-button start, electric chromatic rearview mirror and dual-zone automatic climate control. 

Continuing Kia's Design Leadership 

Created by the design studio at KMA's corporate campus in Irvine, Calif., the Forte Koup's sporty two-door profile, swooping roofline, and large 18-inch alloy wheels give it an athletic and aggressive stance that continues Kia's tradition as a design leader.

The Forte Koup's swept headlights stretch deep into the front fenders, and the raked windshield and broad shoulders give the front end a sleek, sporty appearance.  LED positioning lights add a premium look to the front fascia.  At the rear, LED tail lights complete the premium look of the exterior. A rear valance with twin chrome exhaust tips maintains the Forte Koup's sporty demeanor.

Sporty Cabin with Premium Features

The interior of the Forte Koup features premium materials and soft touch points. Large, easy-to-read white-on-black gauges nestle deeply into the instrument cluster.  Chrome accents around the HVAC controls and optional push-button start, along with carbon fiber-like textures on the dash and seats, add a sporty touch.  A grippy leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob are further evidence of the Forte Koup's performance intentions. Class-exclusive available features such as front heated seats, an air-cooled driver's seat and driver-selectable electric steering further set the Forte Koup apart from its two-door competition.

Dynamic Driving Experience

Utilizing a 1.6-liter GDI turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the SX is the most powerful Forte Koup ever.  Power is seamlessly transferred to the front wheels via a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.  The GDI powerplant produces 201 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 195 lb.-ft. of torque between 1,750-4,500 rpm.  The advanced powertrain features double overhead cams with dual continuously variable valve timing to help improve efficiency and performance.
