Kia Forte Koup’s entry-level price is competitively set and stays at a very similar level as Koup’s main competitors coming from Scion (Tc), Honda (Civic) and Ford (Focus), however none of those models offers as much standard equipment as does the Koup. Plus, none of them also can’t beat Koup’s longer-than-average 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty! [Source: Kia]
