I love this car. It is fast. Once the motor breaks in you will be suprised as to the speed when you give it the gas. Love the way it handles and hugs the road. Can't say enough about how great this car is. Well worth the money. Mine is the Corsa Blue with the Spoiler. Very Stylish.

I searched the internet like crazy for the perfect car and finally had the mind set i wanted the Kia Forte Koup. The look had me most interested, I just needed to test drive one. I went to San Antonio and test drove my very first one. I had to have it!! Didn't need to look anymore! I got a white 2012 with only 900 miles on it with: push start button, navigation system, sunroof, and sirus radio. I plan on keeping this car for a very long time, I've never been this pleased with a new vehicle.

I've only had my Koup for a few days but so far I love this car. The styling is great and the inside is well made and comfortable. Bought the 2.4 engine with plenty of power and lots of equipment. Loving the bluetooth, sunroof,stereo, interior overall plus the red w/ white lighting on the dash. Stereo sounds awesome and the driving experience is very positive. Handles well with minimal road noise and vibration. I bought the silver with black leather interior and it gets lots of looks from other owners who love their cars:)

I was recently sandwiched between a jeep and another SUV. Unfortunately, my koup was totaled. I walked away from that accident without a single scratch thanks to my koup! I'm so thankful for having purchased this car and I'm going to miss it. It was fun to drive and I had not a single issue for 30k miles. Would definitely recommend to a parent/younger person.

Love this car

by from Fort Worth, TX on March 30, 2012

I bought the Forte Koup instead of the Civic because of the features it offered vs the price. I have received comments on the car weekly.
