2010 Kia Forte Koup SX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 6M)


The sport tuned suspension really makes this car fun to drive. It's no sports car by any means, but it is a beautiful blend of fun and practicality.

There's a half inch dead spot in the throttle which makes first gear a royal pain, but it's a very simple fix for someone with a little know-how. Even with the mod, the gas pedal is REALLY light and sensitive. It takes a little getting used to.

Blue tooth isn't great, but it's there. Back seats have an impressive amount of space for a coupe. Drivers seat sits high and and only raises from the back. Steering wheel controls are great, audio sounds good, interior controls have a comfortable and logical layout.

Well done, Kia.

Best Features

Absolutely love the sport-tuned suspension. Logically placed controls help enhance a good driving experience. Tilting/Telescoping steering wheel and backseat passenger room really add to comfort. 6 speed manual tied to a 2.4L engine bring a quick and sporty driving experience without sacrificing fuel mileage.

Worst Features

Driver's seat is less than comfortable...would greatly appreciate a lower seat with the ability to tilt backward. The throttle feel is a nightmare in the manual - I would hope to eliminate the dead spot, pull the throttle closer to the floor, and create a thicker pedal feel for a sportier (and more comfortable) driving impression.
