Drive Time review of the all-new 2010 Kia Forte Koup SX by auto critic Steve Hammes.
my brother bought one and he loved it but ho only god it because he had a
baby before that he was ready to go buy a full package version of this car
so if you dont have alot people to be driven around i would get this both
verynice cars to though
@stevehammes dud i m in same thing i like kia looks and i hate mazda 3
smile face. but mazda has 4 door and so much fun to drive. which one do
think i should buy?
@eclipsetuner99 yea, that’s why they changed them.
love the 5 door.
Yah and what do you drive?
@LeastOfTheMajority Very good, as I understand. I think the car weighs just
under 3000lbs. it’s like 2900 and some change. that coupled with almost
180hp makes for a pretty quick car. I’ve seen 0-60 vids of this car with
the auto in the 6 to 7 second range.
@jamali99 my kia is 100,000km or 5 years
Good review. Seems like a nice car. I don’t like the red gages though, I
think white or a silver-blue still gives off a “cool” look with being more
mature and sharper.
@Vachowski Excellent question and one I’ve pondered myself. I probably
would buy the Mazda3 over the Forte Koup BUT that’s because I have a family
and would prefer the 4 or 5-door style of the Mazda. All in all, it’s a
close call but the Mazda3 is awfully hard to beat for the money.
The wheels look like shit
@poirierluc19 yeh dude n they also give 100 000 km warranty not bad n if i
got it ill probably use it for 4 yrs so i dont think tht reliability will
matter cuz any new car will run good for 4 yrs 🙂
can you get an SX model A/T without paddle shifters? thanks…. and by the
way “nice review!” 🙂
front wheel drive ? Give me a break 173hp – joke
@Bearnub LOL!!!!! Suuuuurrrreeee it is…truth based in nothing.
@subyrockz4 Get It! I have the SX Hatch and I love it
Steve really showed himself in the review.been a longtime
@jamali99 depending on the model.. Si are expensive.. go in the ex or lx
and there not…
people should stop complaining about the power….if this car had like
300-400 hp….then you would need 300-400 hp money to buy it….by lowering
the power and thus the cost…one does not have to dream about owning
one….I have this car….and 154 HP is more than enough for me…plus with
the fuel price being so high…its not so hard on the pocket….Whenever I
drive my koup…people always turn and look….its a real eye
catcher….This car attracts more ladies than those luxury german cars
@stevehammes Today, would you buy it over the 2012 Focus? Im considering an
SE sedan manual. The Koup sounds like a decently fun car but I’m worried
about resale value. I know Kia has come a long way recently but it’s still
a Kia. Any thoughts?
im actual rather impressed with kia’s new cars , comfortable , fun to drive
and they are also good looking .. unlike a lot of other new cars its got a
simple look to it instead of a jagged and swoopy “futuristic ” look .
i would get the tc
I made that comment 2 years ago, but if you must know. I’ve gone through a
2005 Porsche Cayenne S (hand me down), a 2002 Cavalier, and recently bought
a 1993 Accord coupe with plans to do an H22 swap. So with that being said
My Cayenne would happily beat any economy car INCLUDING this Forte Koup in
a race, and once my swap is done in my CB it’ll walk any Kia Forte Koupe.
How bout them apples?
Looks so much like a Civic, but I love it.
It just looks too much like a Civic for me
