Kia is finishing off their compact Forte lineup with the introduction of the new 2014 Forte Koup at the New York Auto Show today. The new Koup takes the Forte sedan, drops the back doors off, and borrows the front end off the new 2014 Forte 5-Door.

Like the 5-Door Forte, the 2014 Forte Koup comes with two engines,

  • 2.0L four-cylinder: 173 horsepower, 154 pound-feet of torque (Standard on the EX)
  • 1.6L turbo-four: 201 horsepower, 195 pound-feet of torque (Standard on the SX)
The 2.0L comes equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission only, while the 1.6T has the choice of a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

The Forte Koup EX comes standard with sixteen-inch wheels, Kia's UVO voice recognition system, backup camera, Bluetooth, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, cruise control, power windows and LED running lights and fog lights. SX models come equipped with eighteen-inch wheels, dual chrome exhaust tips, revised front bumper and grille and larger rear bumper, LED taillights, larger font brakes, alloy foot pedals and various "carbon fiber-look" trim pieces inside and out.

The 2014 Forte Koup arrives sometime this winter.

I think it loos cool, and it has some punchy little engines. Most small cars give you a miserable 130-140 hp engine, 170-201 is pretty good. The 201 hp version is going to go like a stabbed rat.

I like this better than its sister car, the Elantra coupe. Pretty spiffy!
