Kia Motors America today announced the third and final member of the completely redesigned Forte (also known as Cerato in many countries) lineup when it unveiled the all-new Forte Koup at the 2013 New York Auto Show.
Following the launch of the Forte sedan and Forte 5-door, the all-new two-door Forte Koup SX boasts European-inspired design and performance to match with a 1.6-liter gasoline direct-injected (GDI) turbocharged four-cylinder engine putting out 201 horsepower (150kW) and 195 lb.-ft. (264Nm) of torque.  As equipped, the SX is the most powerful Forte Koup ever.
Similar to its Forte 5-door sibling, the Forte Koup is offered in two trim levels, EX and SX, with two engine and transmission choices.  The EX comes equipped with a 2.0-litre GDI four-cylinder engine, and the SX comes standard with the 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder.
The EX comes standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission while the SX may be mated with either a standard 6-speed manual or optional 6-speed automatic featuring steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
Sales are expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2013, and pricing will be announced closer to the Koup’s launch.
