2014 Kia Forte Koup

This, on the other hand, is a little disappointing.

Unlike the Soul, the Koup never had an "Iconic" design that Kia would be afraid to mess with.
A coupe version of a sedan should be much more than a 2 door version of that car.

Seems that Hyundai/Kia isn't getting that yet. As the Elantra Coupe is similarly boring and invisible.
Even, Honda is trying harder with the Civic. Where the coupe doesn't not look like a 2 door version of the sedan.

Opportunity missed....

All they needed to do was send the new Pro'Ceed to the U.S. and call it a day (of serious profits), but Nooooo they had to pen this blob of a thing.

Kia's been doing some really great designs lately but This Is Not One of Them.

Not only would the pro'ceed 3-door have been a much more attractive, practical vehicle than this blob, it would have given Kia an alternative to the GTI and Hyundai's own Veloster, instead of trying to sell the same three bodystyles as the Elantra.
