Have we got a treat for you today. The Kia brand is known for fun cars that are as eye-catching as they are feature-filled, and we're going to do a 2016 Kia Forte5 vs. 2016 Kia Forte Koup side-by-side comparison.

The 2016 Forte Koup, arriving on dealership lots in early 2016, is a sporty compact with the looks and chops to back up the description. The 2016 Forte Koup is a two-door model with sport-tuned suspension, McPherson struts, and recent championships in both 2014 and 2015 in the Pirelli World Challenge Touring Car A class, topping other major brands. You buy a coupe vehicle for its looks and handling, and the Forte Koup exceeds all expectations, with touches like a brash front design and a tight roofline that guarantee this car is going to ride like the wind.

The 2016 Forte5's design is closer to the standard four-door Forte model than the 2016 Forte Koup, with touches like Kia's signature "tiger nose" front grille, and it has plenty of other redeeming qualities. Try the money-saving fuel economy, for starters, with 25 mpg city, 33 mpg highway, and the Forte5's massive cargo room for a compact with 23.2 cubic feet (about 657 liters) to stow away your bags, athletic equipment or whatever else you need to make your tip a memorable one.
