This may be a bit early but has anyone heard of KIA changing or upgrading the KOUP for 2011 other than the SX-R version?

Yeah I believe the Hover mode feature is added to it. I had a guy comment that it looks like my car wants to fly by the style of it.

(Roads? roads? where we're going we don't need roads.)

The radio should (emphasis on SHOULD) be the new Kia/Microsoft UVO system. Touchscreen and what not. You can Google it and get more info, but it looks pretty sweet. Kia is saying they'll be available come Summer 2010. Unfortunately for us current Forte/Koup owners, the system is not going to be swappable into our cars; it'll only be available in new cars.

Youtube video on it:

I like this alot, I want to get a new koup because of this. Every time I tell my car to call my friend A.J. my car calls Adrian!! I get SO SO SO frustrated :( and in this UVO system video he said a really complicated name and it came out perfectly. I am always so frustrated whenever I need to call someone swiftly and easily and it keeps messing up and not calling the right person, that happens ALOT, so I just sort of quit calling people all together. Do I have an accent or something?!?! (I was born and raised in america)

But my rant aside, this system really looks like a genuinely nice piece of work!

2011 Koup

Does anyone know when the 2011 Koup will be in dealerships? And is the UVO system going to be in the Koup?

new here, still deciding on whether to buy a Koup, but saw this and thought it might be of interest, it's the 2012 version though...

2012 Kia Forte Koup to get turbocharged 4-cylinder - egmCarTech

The 2010 Kia Forte Koup is currently offered in two different trim-levels including the EX and SX. The Forte Koup EX is powered by a 156-hp 2.0L 4-cylinder, while the SX is powered by a 173-hp 2.4L 4-cylinder. Now what if you added a turbocharger to either- you’d have a really fun Korean Koup or coupe, or whatever you want to call it.

According to Tom Loveless, vice president of sales for Kia Motors America, a turbocharged engine may find its way under the hood of the 2012 Kia Forte Koup.

I'm looking into buying a Koup SX in the next week or so... should I wait for the new model? Is anything really new/improved rumored to be included?

That is what this thread is all about. Any info we can find will be posted here. It appears there is nothing out there on the 2011 model at this time.
