Quick Look

The 2016 Kia Forte Koup did not make many changes to it this time. This may be because of how positive the reaction has been on the looks, power, and fuel efficiency of the compact coupe.

Full Review

The 2016 Kia Forte Koup is definitely made to push more drivers to acknowledge the importance and convenience of a compact coupe. Even though Kia hasn’t really made any massive alterations to the new Forte Koup, they have made enough for them to be noticeable and more convenient for drivers. The Korean manufacturer, Kia has made its changes with small redesigns here and there, and some added features in the interior.

The exterior hasn’t changed much from the previous model in this line up. The grille looks to be the same shape which also seems to be Kia’s signature design for it. They use that same design as a grille for most of their vehicles. Which may be because it suits the overall build of the Kia’s since they also share the same sort of shape in their line ups. The headlights are also a great shape to complement the grille. They fit right at the sides of the grille making it blend in perfectly and ultimately help the look of the front view. The headlights are powered by a strip of LED lighting on the top of the frame. Underneath that, there are standard fog lights which have nothing special done to them.  Moving to the rear view of the compact coupe, we can see Kia hasn’t made any changes to it, which isn’t a bad thing. They probably feel that it wouldn’t be necessary to modify the rear since it’s already the perfect design for them.

Taking a look at the interior look, there isn’t anything that’s eye-catching. The centre console seems to have a larger screen size with very simple to use functions around it. There is nothing too flashy about the seat designs and overall layout in the front. Everything seems to be very standard. In terms of space, Kia has done a great job of creating more space inside than the typical coupe. Surprisingly, they have created some legroom and headroom for passengers in the back, in which most of them shouldn’t feel too uncomfortable.

Under the hood we can see Kia uses a 1.8-litre 4-cylinder engine which is able to push about 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. They also offer a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine which is able to push 173 horsepower and 196 pound-feet of torque. Both these engines run on a 6-speed manual and automatic transmission. In terms of fuel efficiency, the second engine described requires about 9.0 litres to drive 100 kilometres in both the city and highway.

The 2016 Kia Forte Koup is a great car if it is the type of car you are looking for, which would have to be a compact coupe. It excels in many key factors like looks, power, and fuel efficiency compared to some of its competitors. With these few minor changes, they are sure to get more drivers on board to the Kia Forte Koup family.

Power and Performance:

The Forte LX is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine making 145 horsepower and 130 pound-feet of torque. Power runs to the front wheels through a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. The EPA's fuel economy estimates for the Forte LX sedan are 31 mpg combined (26 city/39 highway) with the automatic. The LX manual returns 30 mpg combined (25/37).

The EX gets a 2.0-liter four-cylinder generating 173 hp and 154 lb-ft of torque (148 lb-ft with SULEV emissions). On the sedan and hatchback, this engine comes only with the six-speed automatic, but on the coupe, you can also get it with the manual transmission. Forte EX sedans rate 28 mpg combined (24 city/35 highway), but we were impressed with the 32 mpg that a Forte EX achieved on our Edmunds evaluation route.

Interiors and Special Features:

The 2016 Kia Forte is much more than just an economy car stuffed with gadgets. Boasting a handsome cabin furnished with quality materials in the higher trim levels (EX and SX), the Forte gives premium-brand compacts a run for their money. In addition, the Forte's high-tech features are well-designed and easy to use. Its touchscreen interface, with large, logically positioned virtual buttons, is one of the better examples of this technology.
