2016 Honda Civic Coupe vs 2016 Kia Forte Koup
Although it has been several months since the all-new, tenth-generation Honda Civic Coupe was released, we’re still just as excited as we were when it first arrived. In an effort to see how it measures up to some of its biggest competitors, we thought we’d compare the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe vs 2016 Kia Forte Koup to see the differences and similarities between the two compact coupes.
While the Honda Civic is one of the oldest vehicles in North America, the Kia Forte was just introduced in 2010 and has been steadily increasing its popularity ever since. While some models originate as a sedan with a coupe model following some time later, the Forte Koup was actually introduced right away alongside the Forte Sedan.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe
So we know the Kia Forte Koup is a popular model, but does it have what it takes to dethrone the Honda Civic as the most popular passenger car in Canada? Let’s analyze the table above to find out. Starting from the top, the Honda Civic Coupe is more efficient through city streets like those here in Edmonton. Utilizing 1.6 l/100km less fuel than the Forte Koup, the Civic Coupe will definitely be able to save you money at the gas pump over time. Those saving are increased even more so by the fact that the Civic Coupe utilizes 1.2 l/100km less fuel on the highway as well.
When it comes to power, the next row on the table shows that the Kia Forte Koup fires back with an advantage of its own, in the form of 15 extra horsepower. 15 hp isn’t a huge advantage, but it is enough to be noticeable. However, the Civic Coupe’s available engine increases its power to 174 horses. But no matter the engine, the Civic Coupe weights over 100 lbs. less than its Kia competitor, meaning it needs less power to maneuver in the same way. Therefore, the 15-horsepower advantage is cut by quite a bit, or the 1-horsepower advantage of the Civic Coupe’s available engine is strengthened.
