With performance-inspired, aggressive and sleek styling, Kia gave a global debut to the 2010 Forte Koup (to be known as ‘Cerato Koup’ in some countries ) production vehicle during a press conference at the 2009 New York International Auto Show. Joining the Forte family in the Kia lineup, the company’s first-ever two-door coupe embodies the brand’s current bold design direction first seen on the concept version of the Soul urban passenger vehicle in 2006.
“On the heels of the introductions of the Soul and Forte sedan, Forte Koup represents the next exciting step in the transformation of Kia design and offers a blend of sporty and emotional appeal,” said Michael Sprague, vice president, marketing, KMA. “We believe our new design evolution coupled with standard Kia value and safety features will continue to attract customers to the Kia brand.”
Unfortunately, Kia tells me that the stunning Forte Koup is not for our market at this time - but keep your fingers crossed.
