Kia’s new Forte Koup isn’t just a step in the right direction for the Korean automaker; it’s a stroke of genius. Created to get young men in the door of a Kia dealership, it’s also designed to have them boasting about their new Kia – something which most certainly has never happened in the automaker’s brief history in North America. It’s also going to help re-brand the automaker, a move that will be assisted by the company’s decision to take the car racing in next year’s Koni Challenge series. But on top of all this, it’s a stroke of genius by the folks running Kia because in SX trim, with 173-hp and a base price of $17,695 it just doesn’t have much, if any, competition.

Don’t believe us? Let’s take a look.

I thought the review was ok overall but two of the points on the minus side were pretty lame, in my opinion.

Harsh suspension? How about control, stability, road feel? Someone has driven too many north American cars with cushy suspensions. I like to feel the road when I'm driving, bumps and all.

Needs a louder exhaust? There's a difference between loud and powerful. Anyone can slap a huge exhaust on a honda civic but all you get is noise, not the rumble that comes from a powerful engine.

I second that. The sound of the stock exhaust is just... perfect. It's a pure, low-tone sound that sounds far better than any huge fart can.
