Did you apperceive Kia still fabricated the two-door Forte accepted as the Koup? I had no abstraction this was still a thing. Apparently, I was not alone, and aback no one absolutely bought them, and Kia is axing the Forte Koup for the 2017 archetypal year.
The first-generation car was a appropriate attractive Scion tC competitor, and had some glossy diffusers in the back.
I bethink cerebration that had potential, but the active acquaintance and the appearance didn’t absolutely deliver. Occasionally, you would see these cars adapted and admiration why the buyer didn’t aloof buy a Civic Si instead.
Then, apparently, Kia active and adapted the poor Koup over the years and models of the car calm dust on banker lots. According to CarsDirect.com, a Kia adumbrative accepted that the Koup will be discontinued in 2017. You can’t absolutely accusation buyers for blank the Kia Koup, as it came with a starting amount of about $20,000 and was calmly overshadowed by the abundant bigger and cheaper Honda Civic.
Speaking of the Honda, actuality is a little factoid that will draft your mind. You apperceive the all-new Civic Si, with a 1.5-liter turbo that makes a black 205 application and isn’t alike for auction yet? Kia was basically affairs the aforementioned car aback 2014. The Forte Koup SX could be had with a 1.6-liter turbo authoritative 201 HP, a six-speed chiral and some nice appearance for beneath $22,000.
Now, with dealers atrocious to off-load inventory, you can snatch up one of these adventurous two-doors for about $15,000. That’s not a bad accord for a adolescent being on a account arcade for a cast new car.
Farewell, Forte Koup. Perhaps if your name were spelled correctly, your fate would accept been different.
