The video shows how slow the Forte SX is... a 127hp/107lb-ft/5sp car can almost keep up with a 173hp/168lb-ft/6sp car. Korean horses suck!
LOL. Yes, but keep in mind that the Forte is at least 600 lbs heavier than that Civic, and the Civic is geared better. You are right though. The Forte does look slow even though he is easily pulling away. Plus, I had to laugh when the Civic guy swore in French at missing third gear. That was funny.

The GT has something wrong or the driver is really shitty, because I have driven both cars and the GT will rape a Forte/Koup SX any day.
Agreed. I could see the Mustang lift on the throttle and get back into it more than a couple of times. He was clearly just playing with the Koup.

Of course the weight is a big factor, but I still think the 2.4L engine doesn't pull like it should.
I thought that same thing when I test drove the EX and the SX Koup. I thought they both felt weak on torque, but I wasn't buying the car to race it so I didn't care. Once I got it home and could actually test it with a couple of meters, I found that the car is quicker than it feels.
