The Kia Forte Koup was unveiled today at the NY auto show. I must say it looks pretty tempting. In the words of Borat I must say "Very nice, how much?"

It looks great but I personally don't like the dash layout and steering wheel. Can't wait to see the pricing.

That screams "Cobalt" to me. It's not a bad thing. I actually kinda like Cobalts.

Still not a bad car.

Oh, gotcha. The overall layout is the same as the sedan (tried to upload pic but it photobucket didn't like it).
