2016 Kia Forte Koup SX


   The Forte Koup is already fun to drive and with FlexSteer, you’ve got even more control over how it handles. Simply choose between normal, comfort and sport steering modes.

In normal mode the Forte handles as you’d expect a zippy compact to handle.

The best way to get to your destination? Use your voice. With the available Voice-Command Navigation you can get directions and learn about road conditions all without letting go of the wheel.

With UVO eServices, an available Infotainment System, it’s simple to manage music, make hands-free calls and much more. You can even use Google Maps™ and send locations to your car via the eServices phone app.

We’ve thought of everything—just in case the unthinkable happens. From an advanced airbag system, to a reinforced new body to front seat belt pretensioners, you and your passenger’s safety is the top priority in any Kia we build.
