    for me i felt a bit cramped at the back as the head room is small.. leg room ok.. only bad thing is that the suspension a bit too soft for a "sports" car..

    insurance is at $2.8k for 27yr old w/o NCD..
    with such a expensive insurance, i believe it's cat under sports car..

    tempted to test drive the MT, but they got no 1.6 MT at Ubi showroom..

    P.S. that guy from HWZ got ripped for the GPS set, the SE that served me and my friend told us GPS with reverse cam package should cost less than $1k..
    edmw name speaks it all, they're still happy when they got chopped. FAIL!

    coupe behind is not meant for ppl to sit de, will suffer from neck and leg cramps

    btw did u waited long before u got ur chance to test drive?

    the 2.0 one is so-so loh, same engine as sonata so can't expect much. whereas the 2.8l V6 can feel more difference in its own class. 2.0 engine is actually quite retarted, maybe due to the tiny injectors and fuel system. even when u floor it, it took 2-3 secs to react

    abt 30mins..

    the best thing abt this coupe is it's Cat A.. i dun think there's any coupe except for Copen in Cat A.. the 1.6MT is the same price as Copen..

    IMO, worth the buy..

    haizz... if i had not bought my Swift.. this one definately in..
    price is very attractive comparing to Tuscani at $80k..

    rims ugly always can change.. does not void warranty according to SE..
    Yes, very spacious, if the driver is about a not that tall, it will be even spacious.
    Nice frameless doors.

    at $80k, I think it's pricing is way off because it's performance is really below par.

    Good job for kia....

    bro.. I think i did not specify. I was trying to compare between the 3 Peugeots. I owned the cheapest Peugeot which carried the same general tech specs as the 207cc. except for the retractable roof. The roof is to me more like an aesthetic that does not increase my 'feel-good' factor. Rather it will be the punch and overall drive quality that makes me feel the price worthwhile.

    Like you said, the Koup is another alternative for sportier outlook at a cheap price. But tech specs wise, not much difference. Feel good factor is almost zero. Maybe I get overtaken by a Honda Fit 1.5 driven by some young punk. I'd rather buy a Kia Forte. At least it serves a more practical purpose.
    I wasn't referring to the Peugeot comparsion.... I was actually trying to comprehend the sentence "for a Kia koup, it's more for people who want to look good but cannot afford the really sporty coupe for instance, the BMW630i." I dun see how this sentence comes about cos IMO, every car has their own target market of consumers.... Even a person who can afford a SLK 200 coupe might not be able to get a BMW 630 I as the price diff is almost $100k..... These 2 contis are of different league... what more a korean Koup.....

    Like what I have said, engine is the same as the Forte... However, the overall handling is better than the Forte..... The Koup's appealing point comes from a sporty look at a affordable premium hence, it is still another value-added point of the Koup.......If the feel good factor comes from the performance, u are looking at the wrong car.... If I get overtaken by a young punk driving a Honda Fit 1.5, i will open my sunroof and give him the thumbs up....... I doubt he can do the same........

    True... The Forte looks good when it first came out but the Koup now definitely brings the Cerato model to a higher level....... What's more, the price diff is marginal compared to the amount of improvements made on the Koup......

    so far all about this car is the styling, and the price.

    Did anyone test drive it, and give an honest review. Only if there is some convincing positive reviews, I will be tempted to test drive one myself.

    I am interested to know not because I looking to buy one but to feel how much progress the Korean car industry has achieved.

    This would definitely be one to be considered. First saw it in the Straits Times sometime last week and the picture that appeared in it was the car in lime green colour. Fell in love with it since. Besides, the price it offers is very realistic. But then again, its a Kia.
    The goal is not to set a fastest lap, it is to eventually win the race.

    nice car for college kids.
    and easy going folks who want a bit of fun factor and slightly diff feel in terms of driving space.

    it's probably best left in its stock form.


    For $60 - 65k i would prefer to buy an older (but proper) Jap Sports.

    60K-65K, exactly, an older but proper Japanese sports car. Or a Golf GTI like someone who also got it at that price.

    Tuscani would be a better buy for that money

    60-65k I would buy a proper Jap car too or else use 40+k to buy a 1.6 jap car when COE is lower

    for a 1.6L auto, it was slightly better than the Lancer 1.6(A) CVT only till 4000rpm. At 4000rpm on the "sportstronic" mode, it just remained and won't go up any higher. WTF?!? Its so hard to pickup and speed in that vehicle. A manual would be better but I didn't have time to test it.

    I still CANNOT believe they made a 2 door THIS (slow) WAY for such a high price tag

    I think if my budget was $60 - $65k, Golf GTI will be high on the list but i guess I'd buy a secondhand RX8..

    it's probably best left in its stock form.


    For $60 - 65k i would prefer to buy an older (but proper) Jap Sports.

    College kids would prefer Swift sports or Honda Jazz for sure.. Haha.. If they drive this their friends will sure ask " your father not using the car today?".. I think this is more for family man who want a car that look a little sporty yet it's soft and comfy for the kids to sit in.. I think it'll look better with the stock Forte 17inch wheels..

    i will give my vote to Forte over this koup.

    Basicly u get the same engine, 2 doors more, much cheaper insurance, 10k lesser for forte.

    Add-ons pricing for the koup is totally ripping..

    Handling:
    Using old school suspension system as verified by MS, where he kept bending over lifting his jackfruit high up at the showroom. Wide turning radius despite of the lenght and width and electronics steering is not the type for me personally. i prefer hydraulics steering where i can get back more steering feedback.

    Interior & Exterior
    Build in HU with ipod, USB port. Some cheap plastics can be found on inside and the red and black leather seats which require to add $300. Rims are standard with only 1 design and cannot change. Rear passenger seat has a higher height for passenger to rest as compared to other makes of coupe but leg space still remains unchanged for all.

    Engine
    1.6l DOHC with 124hp on crank @ 6300rpm, well when we tested, it took more than 10 secs to reach 80km and MS still can ask me "why i didn't floor" when the pedals already reached the firewall. Well even a mpv can move faster than that when i floor.

    Overall, i dun find it fitting into the coupe section. And the additional amount you need to pay for the koup over forte is totally just too over. This coupe will not give you the feel of the real coupe IMO... so for ppl who always wanted to get one, my adivse is save up abit more and get a decent one if you wan to have the feel of the real coupe performance and handling. Otherwise the forte will do good enough.

    Do you mean my manhood? If it is, I am offended. I thought it is atomic bomb.

    Haha.. I was thinking what happened to you. Why didn't you floor the @#$% accelerator. Were you trying to save $$$ on petrol for C&C?

    Well, in terms of looks, this Ford lookalike is just comme ce comme ca (so-so). Tuscani is also another so-so but for price's worth and power and misc. Tuscani should be able to better this if the price is right

    I was considering the Rx8 too because its soooo sexy but then of its maintenance and etc..

    lol Jazz ain't bad for transport, the front is very scary for accident if it hits something.. SS is one car I want to try and give a review since its so "POP" with many being value for money car in track and on streets..

    The SS's rear seats is cramped though for me
