Power is meaningless if your safety is compromised. That’s why the Forte Koup’s body is fitted with ultra-high-strength steel reinforcements that provide added support in the event of an accident. Collision protection comes courtesy of standard front airbags, front side airbags and dual-row side air curtains.

Look ahead. See behind.
