With performance-inspired, aggressive and sleek styling, Kia Motors America globally debuted the 2010 Kia Forte Koup production vehicle during a press conference at the 2009 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS). Joining the Kia Forte family in the KMA 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 Kia Soul urban passenger vehicle in 2006.
"On the heel of the introductions of the Kia Soul and Kia Forte sedan, Kia 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."
