2017 Kia Forte vs. 2016 Kia Forte Koup Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Forte than the Kia Forte Koup. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Forte Koup, the Kia Forte may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Forte as you will with the Kia Forte Koup, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Kia Forte is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Forte Koup. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Kia Forte and the Kia Forte Koup have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Kia Forte is about the same width as the Kia Forte Koup. The Kia Forte is slightly shorter than the Kia Forte Koup, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Kia Forte doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia Forte Koup.

Handling
The Kia Forte has about the same turning radius as the Kia Forte Koup, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Kia Forte has less horsepower than the Kia Forte Koup, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Kia Forte and the Kia Forte Koup.

Warranty
The Kia Forte comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Kia Forte Koup.
