Now that the new generation Kia Forte/Cerato has been unveiled and we found out how it looks, it’s time to start speculating about the coupe version, which is the most interesting variant of the car. Kia actually calls it ‘Koup.’ The previous generation was the best-looking car Kia made to date.
This rendering shows a two-door version of the sedan, and although it’s a nice effort, the actual car probably won’t look anything like it.
If the current Koup is any indication, the next car will be substantially different than the sedan. That is the best thing about it. If the Koup were to be a two-door version of the car your dad drove, you as a young fella would not be interested it. That’s why Kia gave the Koup a sharp and edgy styling. It doesn’t share many exterior panels with the sedan. The new one will follow suit.
Pretty though it is, the current Koup is not even remotely sporty underneath. Let’s hope Kia changes that in the new one. They can start by making it rear-wheel-drive.
