Look at the new 2012 Civic Si kind of looks like a Forte Sx....Down to the red stitching on the seats, front honey comb grille with fog lights, and at the bottom of the door look at the lines. Who's copying who? lol Honda you still ugly! The interior/dash looks horrible and that triangle window in the corner above the mirrors. Funny how everyone thinks korean cars are bad...How many people own a Samsung tv?? Yes you got it best tv and quality! hmmmm also made in korea

Well, you would think when you copy two great looking cars, the Forte Koup and the new Accord coupe, you would get a great looking vehicle. However, Honda managed to somehow muck it up and make it look kinda awkward and sorta bland at the same time. And it looks like they have yet to fix that horrid interior!!! The ugly double dash with digital readouts is atrocious!! Didn't know that horrid part of the 80s-early 90s auto scene was so hot at Honda!!

sorry but i don't think civic looks nice...at least the 2009+ models

plus who said koup copied?? thats saying Peter Schreyer copied and didn't have his own original ideas

if anything, i just think the koup looks more like an audi than a civic

I don't belive anyone copied anyone. the Civic and Forte have similar "features" but are very different at the same time. Just my 0.02

I don't remember who told me that the KIA was designed by an Audi designer. I think it was the car salesman when I bought it. LOL



it is Peter Schreyer, hes the audi designer

so i don't know how people say who copied who

Companies just take the best styling from other companies and incorporate it in their cars. Which is why half the people on this forum have LED strip to try and look like an AUDI. No one really copies anyone, people just take the best of cars and put it in theirs. Which is why the cars now look way better then those in the 80s-90s (well most.)

Yes Peter Schreyer is the head designer at Kia and one of the best in the industry.

With that said; to compare the Civic Coupe to the Koup in terms of design is an insult of the highest order. To my eyes one is definitely in a leauge of it's own and it doesn't wear an "H" badge.

The only thing we stole from the Tc waste idea to look fast but be barely faster than a Corolla.
