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.
