With a mind to fully retool the image their compact entry carries, Kia has introduced a coupe version of their Spectra replacement, the 2010 Kia Forte Koup. This marks the first-ever two-door coupe for the Korean manufacturer. Targeting competitors like the Focus, Cobalt, and Civic coupes - which Kia boasts are all outperformed by the Forte Koup - Kia will offer this front-wheel-drive compact with two engines and transmissions, as well as attractive mileage ratings for all.

Available in two trim levels, EX and SX, the Forte Koup's EX trim features a 156-hp, 2.0-liter inline four. Paired with either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission, the Forte Koup achieves 25/34 mpg. SX versions get a 173-hp, 2.4-liter inline four that will return 22/32 mpg with a six-speed manual and 23/31 with a five-speed automatic.

The Forte Koup comes standard with cruise, a six-speaker stereo with Sirius, USB, and auxiliary inputs as well as steering wheel controls, Bluetooth, stability control, and 16-inch alloys. SX trims additionally enjoy sport seats and suspension, a tilt and telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel, 17-inch alloys, and metal pedals to complement metal-finish trim pieces.
