While the 2016 Kia Forte Koup might be appealing because of its low price, it actually costs more than key competitors such as the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe, which is now available at West Michigan Honda Dealers. Take a look at how these two models compare when it comes to price, value, and more.
Value and Efficiency
The Kia Forte Koup starts at $19,890 MSRP. The 2016 Honda Civic Coupe LX with 6MT is priced at $19,050 MSRP.* And that’s just the short-term savings. Both of these cars offer two engine options, but you’ll find that the Civic Coupe will cost you less in fuel costs long term. Take a look:
- Kia Forte Koup: The Kia Forte Koup gets an EPA-estimated 25 mpg city/34 mpg highway/28 mpg combined with standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and 6-speed automatic transmission. The Kia Forte Koup SX gets a 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder that earns an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city/29 mpg highway/25 mpg combined with 6-speed manual, or 22 mpg city/30 mpg highway/25 mpg combined with 6-speed automatic.
- Honda Civic Coupe: The Honda Civic earns far better fuel economy ratings. The Civic Coupe LX, with its 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and 6-speed manual transmission earns an EPA-estimated 26 mpg city/38 mpg highway/31 mpg combined.** LX and LX-P CVT models rate at an EPA-estimated 30 mpg city/41 mpg highway/34 mpg combined.** EX-T, EX-L, and Touring CVT models rate at an EPA-estimated 31 mpg city/41 mpg highway/35 mpg combined.**
Features and Options
When it comes down to features and options, the Civic once again pulls away from the Kia Forte Koup. The Civic comes with automatic climate control, cruise control, a theft-deterrent system, a rearview camera, floor mats, and map lights. You won’t find any of those standard in the Forte Koup.
