2014 Kia Forte SX Koup: Turbo and a New Look Makes a Good Car Great


New Member

The compact coupe segment in the US market has shrunken a great deal in recent years, but the 2014 Kia Forte SX Koup is proof that those drivers who want a great 2-door compact that is stylish, fun to drive, comfortable and well-appointed can do so without spending a fortune, reports Patrick Rall for TorqueNews.com.

There was a point in time where every popular compact car sold in America was available as a sporty 2-door coupe, but over the past few years, many of them have disappeared – leaving the Kia Forte Koup with very few competitors. Ford has killed off the 2-door version of the Focus, GM stopped offering a 2-door compact when the Cobalt was replaced by the Cruze, Dodge hasn’t offered a compact coupe since the first generation of the Dodge Neon and even the sibling to the Forte Koup – the Hyundai Elantra Coupe – has been discontinued. That leaves the Honda Civic and the Scion tC as the only real 2-door compact coupes sold in America now and compared to those two cars, the new Forte SX Koup shines.
