Heavily-disguised Kia Forte Koup spotted in South Korea!!
Kia Forte Koup has had a successful US premiere at the New York Auto Show last week. Even before the auto show closed it’s doors, the Koup has been selected as a best vehicle at the auto show by a reputable US automotive website, MSN Auto who has praised the Koup for impressive exterior styling, value and overall potential to help move the automotive industry forward.
The 2010 Forte Koup is sportier variant of Kia Forte sedan and is Kia’s first two-door coupe model ever. Aimed at younger buyers, it was originally unveiled as a KOUP concept car at New York Auto Show last year and now, only 12 months later, a production model has made it’s official unveiling.
The two-door Koup is scheduled to go on sale already this year, sometime by the end of summer Kia says. Initially, it will only be available in the Korean, US and Canadian markets, but later it’s sales is expected to spread and reach global markets such as Australia, South East Asia and Middle East. According to Kia it will not be on sale in Europe, where Kia has a sporty pro_cee’d that is built on the same platform.
This exciting Kia model is expected to be a tuner-friendly car and a popular choice among tuner crowds. As you can see below, modifications such as lower coil springs or a set of aftermarket alloy-wheels makes the vehicle look even more stunning, while it’s four-cylinder engines, when in the hands of the right tuner, can turn this car into a real Honda (Civic) killer.
