Designed to captivate.
Do you drive it, or stand there admiring it? From its spectacular bodylines and available 18-inch machined-finish alloy wheels, to its power folding sideview mirrors and signature grille, one thing is clear: the Forte Koup is a wonder to behold.

Lighting your way.
See and be seen in your Forte Koup. Available LED lightbar taillights and Xenon High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights offer the best in night visibility while consuming less energy. For all drivers, that's a win-win.

Watch your step.
Finding your way to your car in the dark can be trying. But not with the Forte Koup. Its available Welcome Lighting System provides lighting accents automatically when you approach with the Smart Key in your pocket. It also illuminates nearby hazards like high curbs and puddles.


Driver-focused comfort.
Performance is nothing without comfort. That's why the cockpit of the Forte Koup is designed with seats that give you all-round support and comfort while you're putting the car through its paces. An intuitive array of instruments is ready for you, while a 6-speed manual or available Sportmatic® automatic transmission gets you to set the wheels in motion.

Let the outside in.

There's no substitute for driving in the open air. Thanks to an available power sunroof, your enjoyment of the Forte Koup is even more refreshing. When you're ready for it, you can be driving in the open air with the push of a button.

Comfort for Canadian climates.
Our weather might vary, but never your comfort. With available dual-zone climate control, the Forte Koup allows you and your passengers to choose separate temperature settings for personalized comfort, no matter what the weather throws your way.

It's the little things.
The Forte Koup is full of surprises, and intuitive features to enhance your driving experience - like standard fold-down rear seats for increased luggage capacity, and an available cooling glove box to help keep your beverages and food chilled for longer trips.

Stay connected to everything.
Of all the things you leave behind in the Forte Koup, the outside world shouldn't be one of them. That's why the Forte Koup features an available multimedia interface to keep you connected to what matters. An available voice-activated navigation system1 gets you to your destinations safely. Plus, with hands-free connectivity using your Bluetooth®2-enabled smartphone or MP3 player means you're never without your tunes.

Tech to the max.
Entertainment? Information? Both, actually. The available Microsoft-powered UVO™ Infotainment3 system gives you voice-activated, hands-free control of the Forte Koup's audio and multimedia features. It also lets you make calls on your smartphone with your hands are on the wheel.

Driver-focused, for focused drivers.
A place for everything, and everything in its place. That's the driver-centric steering wheel of the Forte Koup. With an array of standard controls at hand, you can adjust both the audio and cruise control without taking your hands off the wheel. Plus, the available Smart Key with push-button start eliminates searching for your keys.

Simplicity rules.
One of the most visible features of the driver-centric cockpit in the Forte Koup is also the simplest. The available enhanced LCD Supervision instrument cluster gives you speed, and fuel gauges at a glance. So your eyes never have to move far from the road.


Performance without compromise.
Power is meaningless if your safety is compromised. That's why the Forte Koup's body is fitted with ultra-high-strength steel reinforcements that provide added support in the event of an accident. Collision protection comes courtesy of standard front airbags, front side airbags and dual-row side air curtains. Plus, sensors automatically unlock the doors on impact, so you and your passengers can exit the vehicle safely4.

Look ahead. See behind.
There's nothing like an extra set of eyes. That's why the Forte Koup is equipped with a standard rearview camera5. Shift into reverse, and a wide-angle view of the area behind the vehicle appears on the dash screen. But use caution - be sure to look over your shoulder and check all mirrors when backing up.

Engineered to keep you safe.
The Forte Koup's safety systems help you stop accidents before they happen. Like Standard Hill Assist Control, which prevents your vehicle from rolling backwards when starting on steep hills. Standard Anti-lock brakes with a Brake Assist System applies maximum braking force if rapid brake movements are detected. And in slippery conditions, the Electronic Stability Control and Vehicle Stability Management work together to keep you steady on the road6.

Power where it matters
Effortless acceleration brings effortless exhilaration. Because under the hood of the Forte Koup is a 173 hp 4-cylinder engine - or an optional 201 hp turbo version - begging to be driven. Plus, the soundtrack comes courtesy of an available sport dual exhaust, which is music to any driver's ears. Book your test drive now.

Looks aren't always deceiving.
The Forte Koup's athletic stance looks ready for anything. With its available sport-tuned suspension, the Forte Koup puts its money where its mouth is, handling curves and corners tightly and assertively.
