Forte Koup VS. Hyundai Veloster


We all know that a coup offers a sporty look and a fun to drive attitude for any car, but which one will you spend your money on? We are putting the Kia Forte Koup head to head against the Hyundai Veloster to see which coup offers you the best performance for your money. 

Under the Hood  

  • The standard 2.0L Inline 4 engine in the Forte Koup churns out 173 horsepower compared to the 1.6L engine of the Veloster offering a standard 132 horsepower.
  • With the optional turbo charged engine, both models produce the the same horsepower and torque options. 

Standard Equipment 

Another factor to consider before your purchase is how the standard equipment compares on each vehicle. The Forte Koup comes with the following options standard while the Veloster is left in the stone age. 

  • Auto Sensing On/Off Headlights that sense sunrise and sunset in order to turn your lights to the proper setting. 
  • Dual Zone Air Conditioning, allowing your passenger to control the temperature on their own side of the vehicle. 
  • Air Conditioned Seats for those hot Florida afternoons. Keep the seat of your car cool even when it's hot. 
  • Active Headrests on the Forte Koup allow for added protection against neck and spin injuries in accidents and to help reduce the risk of whiplash. 

For us, higher performance numbers and better performance makes the Forte Koup the clear winner. If you agree stop by McGuire Kia to take a look at the deals we have running on our Forte Koup selection. You can also reach out to our Internet Team for more information.
