Spy Shots: Up close and personal with Kia's promising Forte Coupe
Head over to Kia World for a new gallery of Kia Forte Coupe spy pics
Kia World has scored a new set of spy photos depicting a camoed-up Kia Forte Coupe in South Korea. The car, previewed by the impressive KOUP concept unveiled last spring in the Big Apple, is reportedly set to go on sale in several markets over the summer. It looks to be extremely faithful to last year's show car, right down to the wheel design.
While U.S. plans for the Forte Coupe have not been announced, Kia World spoke to some dealers who say that we should expect to see the car Stateside come December. If that's accurate information, we imagine that the production Coupe will be on hand at the Javits Center when the New York Auto Show gets underway next month. Look for a lineup of four-cylinder engines underhood, with the possibility that the direct-injected 1.6L turbo from the Hyundai ix-onic concept will be among them. Color us interested either way.
