As a car from a relative upstart brand trying to compete with the Honda Civic, not to mention the Ford Focus and the Mazda3, the Kia Forte Koup has its work cut out for it. But Kia has been on a mission to carve out as much market share as it can, and with its increased quality and embarrassment of standard options, the Kia Forte Koup deserves serious consideration, even among such hallowed company.
It's not easy to stand out in the midsize sedan market, which is full of excellent, efficient, and borderline exciting rides like the Ford Fusion, the Mazda 3, and the Honda Accord. Subaru has always been a player in this segment, if a tad on the sidelines, but the brand has stepped up its game big time with the 2015 Legacy.
Land Rover's LR4 received a serious "refresh" for the 2014 model year. Gone is the V-8, replaced by a downsized (both in displacement and power) supercharged 3.0-liter V-6. Gone is the two-speed transfer case, although it's still available as an option. Gone, as well, is the LR4's face; it's been replaced with something that looks a little less like the last-generation Range Rover, although some of those elements do carry over even in the new visage.
