Kia Forte Koup SX
Base price: $21,295
Price as tested: $24,195 Within the funky Forte Koup is a surprisingly practical interior. The sporty handling makes roundabouts and off-ramps a pleasure.
We like: Part of the fun of driving a Forte Koup is it isn’t common.
We’d like: Better rear-seat access. Engine: 1.6-litre 4-cylinder turbo Power/torque: 201 hp/195 lb-ft
Fuel consumption (L/100 km): 10.8 city, 8.1 hwy.
What’s best: Sporty yet quirky good looks, with fun factor to match. Kia packs a lot of modern options into a small package.
What’s worst: Reasonably sizable back seat can be challenging to access for less than flexible passengers.
Value for money: Even in the base EX model, Kia offers up a host of creature comforts.
