The 2014 Kia Forte Koup has been given the distinction of being a “Best Value in America.” The sporty two-door Kia captured the award in the Compact Coupe segment, according to the leading industry authority on vehicle ownership costs.
Honoring the 2014 Forte Koup is Vincentric, the well-respected automotive data firm headed by President David Wurster. While there were many worthy challengers, the Forte Koup came out on top.
Why the 2014 Kia Forte Koup Won
Vincentric’s studies are exceptionally thorough, as they measure no fewer than eight different cost factors. They are depreciation, taxes and fees, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost and repairs.
Once the data has been compiled, Vincentric looks at the vehicles that have lower-than-expected ownership costs when compared to others in a comparable segment. Their data is gathered from all 50 states and Washington, D.C.
Michael Sprague, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kia Motors America, was justifiably proud. “Aside from offering a sporty driving experience, world-class design and cutting-edge technology, our award-winning two-door has also proven itself to be an affordable and sensible choice within its competitive set,” he said.
Meanwhile, Wurster was equally impressed with the 2014 Kia Forte Koup. “Kia is known for producing feature rich vehicles at very competitive prices, and the Kia Forte Koup delivers on that promise. It won the Vincentric ‘Best Value in America’ award in the Compact Coupe segment as a result of very competitive pricing, low depreciation, low insurance costs, and due to its excellent warranty and low repair costs.”
