Could've done better with more powerful engine. Or turbocharge their current engine, yeaah!!!

That rims look like Gallardo LP560's rims too.

This car looks like what the Civic Europe spec should have look like. The current one looks too Gundam-ish to roam the streets of London, Paris, Berlin etc.

Our JDM version of the Civic does look like the Forte's front. Or should I say the Forte looks like the Civic.

Too Gundam-ish? Haha.. Me thinks that it's a good looking replacement for the previous Jazz/Fit-look-a-like-Type-R.

And yes a more powerful engine to back up the Forte Koup's look would be good. But if it were to go the turbo-charged path, won't it be rivals with the Hyundai Genesis Coupe?

Looks great. I like Kia, its quality really improved thru the years. But now, when I just turned 30, this car would be a tad too sporty for me, hehe. I need a 4-door sedan :)

Maybe you can try the Hyundai Sonata, Genesis or Equus?

or

the Kia Cerato/Forte or Magentis/Optima?

but then again, all new cars are looking sportier than ever. even the everyday sedans are having the shapes of coupes now.
