The production of the Kia Forte Koup began in 2009, being assembled at the Hwasung factory in South Korea. The Kia Forte Koup is a two door compact coupe model. Since the beginning of the production, the South Korean automaker decided to also offer a sportier version named the Kia Forte Koup SX.
The Kia Forte Koup range will get a sportier model, named the Kia Forte Koup SX-R. Unfortunately, this model will only be available for people living in Canada. I wonder why Kia chose to offer the very sporty version of their two door compact coupe in Canada. Is the Kia Forte Koup one of the most bought models in Canada? I could have no other explanation really.
The Kia Forte Koup SX-R will get a number of new styling features, including ``R`` branded badges and door sills, a set of 18 inch alloy wheels with Yokohama S-drive tires, a discreet boot lid spoiler, chunky side skirts and a front lip spoiler.
On the technical side, the Kia Forte Koup SX-R gets to keep its engine as it is, without any extra power. The modifications include a strut bar to improve handling, new springs that lower the ride height by 33 millimeters, an AEM air filter as well as a sport exhaust.
The ``R`` package will be available in Canada in two months time at the official dealerships of the South Korean automaker.
