2010 Kia Forte Koup GRAND-AM KONI

Kia has announced today that it will enter the Kia Forte Koup Kinetic race car in the 2010 GRAND-AM KONI Sports Car Challenge Series in the Street Tuner (ST) class. The Kia Forte Koup Kinetic was developed in collaboration with Kinetic Group and represents the manufacturers first entry in racing on the North American continent.

It’s really hard to compete with cars like the Civic and Corolla, but Kia is doing exactly that with the 2010 Kia Forte. Pictures don’t do it justice, but it’s actually a very attractive car, penned by a former Audi designer. A bit of everything thrown in – some Civic, some Sentra, some Corolla, and even some Volvo styling cues help the Forte achieve a conservatively aggressive appearance while still standing out on its own. Interior design is great. While not particularly engaging, the dash and controls are extremely well laid-out and easy to use, as are the steering wheel mounted controls. As in all Kias and Hyundais, it comes standard with the excellent aux/USB/iPod jack with iPod integration.

While other automakers are mired in the muck of one of the worst auto slumps in history, Kia is busy going about the business of reinventing itself. Flush with confidence after the recent successful launch of its all-new Soul, Kia has reloaded and is firing another shot across the bow of its competition with the 2010 Kia Forte, its new bread-and-butter car that replaces the Spectra.
