• 2010 Kia Forte Koup R-Package

The Kia Forte Koup is, top to bottom, one of the best models in Kia’s line-up - and that’s saying a lot. Fortunately for our neighbors in the Great White North, Kia will be releasing an upgraded package of the Forte Koup exclusively for them - a new R package that will be available for either the SX or EX model.

Among the new features included in the R package includes a performance exhaust, AIM drop-in performance air filter, stiffer springs, a strut tower brace, front skirts, side sills and a rear spoiler. The package is finished by 18-inch Europa wheels that are wrapped in Yokohama S-Drive rubber.

Sadly, the package comes with no performance upgrades, although we’re sure that those lucky Canadians wouldn’t mind it one bit because the car looks extremely awesome.

I really like the front end of it looks more mean and bad than the honda Civic.

Kia is considering a Turbo Koup - so we just may see some of that soul you’re looking for. In the meantime, many aftermarket vendors are working on performance parts for both the Koup and Sedan. So things are looking up.

I agree, It is one of the best in Kia’s line up. But it is better if they upgraded it just to add up some new good changes to the vehicle.

Sweet. How come it will only be available for the Canadians? Anyhow, I wonder on how much it will improve the performance of the car. How much more horsepower and torque are added to the engine?

Lovely, looks more aggressive than the Civic type R, plus it was badged with R which means an exceptional performance came out from Kia Motors.
