2012 Kia Forte Koup May Get Turbocharged

News I By John Beltz Snyder I December 15, 2009

Wow. That was quick.

Just yesterday, we posted our list of cars that are all bark and no bite. The good folks at Kia must have an ear to the ground, as the Forte Koup may be getting a turbocharger for the model year 2012, Edmunds reports.
This news comes just a couple weeks after Hyundai debuted the 2011 Hyundai Sonata, which is slated to get a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine soon after its launch. We wouldn’t be surprised if this is the mill that will make it into the Kia Forte Koup.
When we see that turbocharged Forte Koup, we’ll take it off aforementioned list, and take it out to see about hunting down a Honda Civic Si. Until then, we’ll be tuned in, and we’ll pass along any information that comes our way.
Check out the current Forte Koup in the gallery.
