Nice find SOUL4U. A lot of new goodies. Only thing I wish I had on it is the new transmission though.

Any idea what the MPG numbers are with the new tranny?

25K ?!

I understand it's fully loaded, but that's a little rediculous for a Forte. The main reason I was attraced to the Forte was the pirce. Is this Canadian or US dollar?

@DOMtheDON: this price would be Canadian, since it is in the Canada Section and the thread is titled "2011 canadian koup specs"

;);)

I'm interested in what they've changed to... I happen to like my ex rims, so I'd like to see what They have in store.

So how much of these new parts can be bought and installed on the 2010?

The Nav and the LED Tails would be interesting.

The Auto light control would also be good to have.

Sucks about the 6 speed auto replacing the 5 speed.

Those prices look to be before all taxes and fees.

well at those prices and features, it looks like it'll be more worth your while to buy an SI. the CAN dollar is pretty much equal to USD so i dont see to much of a difference in price. main reason i went with this car was because it was affordable compared to the competition

I'm Anti-Honda :p Plus the SI doesn't come with an auto and I'm not exactly the best at driving stick so I'd rather stick with the forte. Maybe even buy a slightly used one for cheaper :p

LOL, I roared when I read that line, you might be the only one my friend, the SX wheels are tremendous looking.

Side note, I really wish they would give an exact release date for the 2011. 2 weeks ago I had a single car accident with my 2010 Forte Koup (lucky to be alive if you had seen the pictures) so with the exact replacement clause in my insurance I will just be getting a brand new fully loaded SX. Was kinda praying they would release the 2011's soon so I could scoop one up when I got my new ride. Ugh!! I have no patience and for sure couldn't wait until January to get one, unless for some strange reason the dealership where I will purchase my new Koup gives me one to drive in the mean time, which of course is quite the dream.
