In today’s world the concept of a two door coupe is really rare. Kia has stuck to the traditional coupe. While the other companies are no longer producing the two door coupe, Kia intends to continue with the model. The model was launched at the New York motor show. It was followed by the sedan and the hatchback.

The two door model helps the company to maintain the body proportions of the car. Though the body remains the same the headlights, graphic and interiors have been done newly.

The company claims that the model is based on European styling. That may or may not be true. Though the car has sold more in Europe, the car was designed in North Carolina in USA. The 2014 model of the coupe is similar to the hatchback model of the Kia forte.

Just like any other new five door coupe model the Kia forte is also available in two engine options. It can be a two cylinder engine or a four cylinder engine. The car has a standard 2.0 liter engine. There are other engine versions of the car as well. That makes the car more popular.

The car has an automatic transmission gearbox. That is not a very attractive option as any person who loves speed will definitely want the 6 speed manual transmission gearbox. The car includes daytime LED lights and satellite radio. The tires are thick enough to give the car good balance and great handling.

The car looks muscular and trendy due to its front facial that is made dominantly with carbon fiber.
The car has the options of a sunroof and HID headlights as well. The car has a cooled driver’s seat for ultimate comfort options. The seats are made of pure leather and the interiors are a class apart.

The previous model was also impressive because of the spacious back seat and great styling of the car. The car had a great throttle that could be risky at times. What people want to see is whether Kia has overcome the previous faults of the earlier versions and brought forward the good features or not.

The steering of the car is not as impressive as the other coupe models. The company provides an adjustable steering that can be adjusted according to three different modes of driving for the drives. The car has been built to impress the huge masses of people. Just like the hatchback version even the coupe will hit the floor for sales only in the last quarter of the year.

The price and other details of the car have not been released as yet. There are other cars as well in the market but the major competitor for the Kia Forte coupe will be the Honda Civic Coupe and the Scion TC. The battle between and established Honda and the Korean company will be worth a watch. Which of the cars is better only time will say that?
