2012 Kia Forte in Illinois
Kia is kicking off the new racing season right. Fresh off the 2011 title in the Street Tuner division as well as the driver title, the company welcomed some new racers as they began the new season at Daytona International Speedway on Jan. 27.
One of the new faces may be recognizable by fans of Nascar. Andy Lally, who was the rookie of the year last season in racing’s top series, is joining the Kia team for 2012 by driving the new Kia Forte Koup. He will compete with teammate Nic Johnsson in the 2012 Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Championship season. Lally is no stranger to the Kia series, as he helped win the Daytona event a year ago before leaving for Nascar. Now he returns, and is pleased to be driving a Kia Forte.
“The Kia Forte Koups are some of the best prepared race cars I have ever driven, and I am looking forward to getting the season started,” Lally said.
While they may not be quite “race ready,” your Kia dealership in Joliet, IL – Bill Jacobs Kia – does offer the 2012 Kia Forte in Illinois. The Forte offers a plethora of trim levels in 2012, as it comes in coup, sedan and four-door hatchback styles. Depending on the package you go with, the Kia Forte is capable of up to 36 miles per gallon on the highway. (more…)
Although it draws several comparisons to the Kia Forte, the Kia Koup is its own vehicle with its own respective following. With that being said the Koup will not be meant for everyone, but those who find themselves starring blatantly at cars like the Mini Cooper are going to be infatuated with Kia’s new Koup. The Koup EX is perfectly proportional in the sense that it offers a 156-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Another trim-level, the SX, pumps out just a little more horsepower, 173-hp, 2.4-liter four cylinder engine, as well as some more zip. Both have really good gas mileage and on average get 26 miles per gallon. If this car trips your trigger make sure to stop down to your premiere Kia dealership in Joliet, Illinois!
Collectively, the Forte Koup has the perfect amount of spunk to it all while being aesthetically pleasing. It definitely is not a boat in regards to size, but when seating the listed amount it has more than enough room for all. The Koup segment of the Kia Forte is noticeably gaining ground on the Mini Cooper in more ways than one! To really see why the Koup is starting to appeal to people around the globe stop down at Bill Jacobs Kia and check it out for yourself.

Essentially what this means is you’re going to have more than enough power in a car this size.
